Adele has been in the public eye since she released her first album, 19, in 2008, and like many stars, she's switched up her style a few times over the years.
When she first started out, the then-20-year-old favored a no-fuss routine and comfortable options, ultimately finding a look of her own that she stuck to for several years throughout the massive success of her albums 21 and 25. In 2019, she lost a noticeable amount of weight, slightly changing her style but still keeping her overall vintage aesthetic.

A new look
In 2019, Adele made headlines for her weight loss, which fans first noticed when she shared a photo of herself from Drake's birthday party in October, to which she wore an off-the-shoulder black velvet dress, her hair and makeup still '60s-inspired. "I used to cry but now I sweat," she joked in the caption.
