Bruno Mars’ Style Evolution
Bruno Mars' sound has certainly evolved since he first broke onto the charts with 2010 single "Just the Way You Are," trading big, romantic power ballads for dance floor-oriented retro bops. His latest album, 24K Magic, faithfully channels '80s and '90s R&B into modern era hits, landing him a ceremony-sweeping six Grammys at the 2018 awards show — an impressive bump from his single 2011 win.
But his style, too, has also undergone a transformation. He's always had a flair for bold patterns and bright hues, but rather than opt for the colorful plaids and denim vests that adorned his wardrobe past, he now leans into the vintage overtones that have come to define his music: bedazzled jackets, flashy athleisure, funky prints and layered chains.
On the heels of one of the singer's most successful years yet, look back at the many eye-popping looks he's road-tested over the years.
