DAVID LEE ROTH | VAN HALEN FASHION

DAVID LEE ROTH FRONTMAN FOR VAN HALEN WAS A FASHION ICON


When you think fashion and 80s you've gotta have some pictures of David Lee Roth flashing through that old brain of yours.
I like how the girls coordinate with his suit.

The skin tight pants, often in a rainbow of neon colours.
Wow, that is what I call colourful!

Tassles and tassles to add movement to the fabrics.


What kind of fabric is that!?
 Stripes of all kinds. Maybe even some furried booties!


The whole crew was into full body matching suits - rock on !
  Or maybe you forgot about the booties and just remembered the tiger wear?


Roar before Katy Perry did it!


Not even sure how to describe this crotch protecting shirt.

The eyes, they travel...they follow the lines of the shirt. I can't help it!

I do appreciate his fancy white gloves...

Spandex suit with gloves. I bet he was sweatin.


Those gloves go with all kinds of outfits.

Now, that is more classy!

Even the lack of clothing was on trend at the time. As long as you were wearing a hat, right?

You know what they say about a big hat...

Personally, I still sport the muscle shirt with the cute saying on it.


But, David's fashion choices did have a practical purpose. Most of those outfits were stretchy, so he could jump and kick while performing to the songs.


Ouch!

The lack of shirt must have allowed DLR to open that diaphram and really sing those unforgettable lyrics and the oohs and aahs to go with them.
