One for the money, Two for the show.

This past weekend, the highly anticipated Elvis biopic made its way to theaters, pulling in roughly $30 million at the time of this writing as it tries to take the number one spot from Top Gun: Maverick. While Austin Butler’s portrayal of Elvis was highly impressive, this isn’t going to be your average film review.

Instead, we’ll be reviewing the movie from a style standpoint. Elvis’s reign took place from the 1950s to the 1970s, which were very pivotal points in the world of fashion. We’ll be breaking down the fashion in each era of the film (which directly coincides with Elvis’s life), starting with his early years in Memphis, Tennessee.

Early Years (1950s Memphis)

This was pretty much the standard look until we hit the 1960s era of the movie.

There were plenty of other great moments in the film that weren’t style related, but you’ll have to go to the theater and see it. Trust us, you won’t regret it.
