Rihanna is no doubt one of the music industry’s most influential personalities. It isn’t just her music women love, but it’s her distinctive sense of style. No one else in the entertainment industry dresses quite like Rihanna. She is a true fashion icon.
There are a few key pieces that we all can add to our wardrobe to make ourselves look a little more like the Caribbean princess. First up is leather pants. Leather pants no longer give you the typical “biker chick” look. These pants are now more versatile than ever. Why? Because you can now get leather leggings, leather shorts, and even colored leather (such as burgundy). Wear leather pants with crop tops. It’s beyond gorgeous.
Mini dresses are another must have. The best option is to wear an all black mini or a multi-colored mini. You want to make sure you keep that punk/urban vibe going. And don’t be afraid to wear the sexiest mini you can find. If you want to dress like Rihanna, you have to take risks and be confident. Just be sure to prep your legs by moisturizing them with lotion, then a light oil on top to add a sexy sheen to your legs.
You’re definitely going to need some cool shades. Find shades that have colorful rims, unique designs, or studs on them. Even though there’s no sun out at night, Rihanna wears her shades to nighttime events! Try wearing colorful shades during the day and black shades at night.
Funky rings are so in right now. I love the ones that have sassy words on them, and Rihanna obviously loves them too. You can also get necklaces that have words on them as well. You can also try wearing stackable rings. They are also in and Rihanna wears these too.
Bras and bandeaus are my favorite things that Rihanna wears. You can find lace, sparkly, colorful or printed ones. The problem with these is that you have to be confident in your body to wear them. Of course, they look best on those that have a flat stomach. But if you don’t have abs, you can always wear a blazer over your bra and button the blazer so it can hide your belly and let the pretty bra show at the top. You can also wear your bras and bandeaus with…
High-waisted shorts. This is another favorite look of mine. I have a fashion portfolio with a picture of Rihanna wearing high-waisted shorts with a belly shirt. I absolutely love that picture! The outfit is so simple but looks so great. The cool thing about high-waist shorts and pants is that they cover your belly but still allows you to show a small part of it (the area right below the bustline) without looking or feeling too exposed.
Finally, a simple pump tops off your look. If you haven’t noticed, Rihanna’s shoes are not as edgy as her clothing. She allows the focus to be on the clothes and lets the shoes be a simple accessory to the outfit. The shoes are typically feminine and sophisticated. Try pumps or strappy sandals that are neutral in color (black, nudes, white) and call it a day.
Pair these pieces together or with items that you already have in your closet and create as many edgy outfits as possible. Just remember to take risks. Try something new even if you think it looks a little odd and wear it with confidence. Enjoy.
