There’s always been an air of mystery around Sade. She doesn’t need bells and whistles to get our attention and in this gimmicky music landscape, that’s rare. No new makeover with every new album or promotional tour with outfit changes for Sade, since the 80’s the Nigerian-British songstress’s atmospheric, soulful voice has been all that she’s needed to win a loyal following. She’s also manage to win new generations of fans over the years.
When it comes to Sade’s style, the first thing that pops to mind is her long-time signature tight, low ponytail or chignon, those strong brows, her large hoop earrings and that fire-engine,enviable pout. We loved her look in the 80’s, she was so chic. Recently, M.I.A. was quoted as saying that her current pared-down look is inspired by Sade.
Her style was a mix of minimalist sexy with long, body-hugging dresses with long sleeves that revealed an open back from behind (similar to what she wore in the video for “Smooth Operator”) and menswear elegance with oversized men’s shirts tucked into jeans and driving gloves. Sade has a knack for looking feminine, elegant and sexy.
