Rod Stewart, Martin Quittenton
Record label of Australian release:
You Wear It Well was written as a collaboration between Rod Stewart and Martin Quittenton from Steamhammer.
In the song, Stewart is writing a letter to an old flame – and having a pretty good attitude about it. What she is wearing well might be her current life, the years passing by, or the birthday gown he once bought her.
This song falls squarely into Stewart’s central body of work, as another of his folksy “blue-eyed soul” ballads.
