Dress Up, Get Down: 47 Songs About Fashion and Style

"Suit & Tie," the hit track off Justin Timberlake's long-awaited album 20/20 Experience is only the latest sartorial salute to the art of getting dressed. From Elvis' tried and true "Blue Suede Shoes," to Prince's "Raspberry Beret," and Bob Dylan's "Boots of Spanish Leather," artists have been singing about their wardrobe for decades.

Below, we've gathered 47 of the best songs about fashion in a Spotify playlist. Some are unabashedly navel-gazing (but nevertheless delightful), like RUN-DMC's "My Adidas," others are endearing, like Donovan's heartfelt ode "I Love My Shirt," and a few don't quite fit the bill but are so good we had to include them anyway— we're talking about you, "Hand in Glove."
