29 Outrageous Top Hats

Inspired by Legendary Guitarist Slash

— February 8, 2011 — Fashion
Top hats that used to define class now represent rock and roll, thanks to the world-renowned guitarist Slash. In fact, it's hard to miss the axe-man on TV due to his trademark look. Also, those talking about the Super Bowl half-time may likely agree on how he owned the half-time performance with a rendition of 'Sweet Child O' Mine' featuring Fergie.

As a tribute to the man who brightened up the Super Bowl performance, check out these trends of outrageous top hats as an homage to what makes guitarist Slash so recognizable.
