Elton John: Fashion Forward Father

Sir Elton John has captivated audiences around the globe for generations with his stunning voice and outrageous clothing.  In his younger (and slightly more vivacious) days he awed us with pink sequined jumpsuit and big, boisterous glasses. But lately it appears as if he’s traded in his eccentric look for a more conservative one. Perhaps inspired by his new role as a father?

Elton, 62, and his partner David Furnish, 48, recently announced the birth of their son Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John. After being denied rights to adopt, Elton and David were able to have a son with the help of a surrogate. And although people question if the music legend is too old to have a newborn, the music superstar happily embraces parenthood. Maybe his new look will inspire the mantra that a father at any age can be stylish.

In one of the first photos shot with his son, Elton sports a suit coat paired with a trendy pair of tick-rimmed glasses. A similar style, The Parker Bi-Focal, has the same thick, plastic rim. These sleek, contemporary glasses offer a refined look to any proud papa. And at a mere $13.56, no dad can claim it’ll break the bank.
