There is absolutely no doubt that Rihanna, the CEO of Fenty beauty is definitely a force to reckon with when it comes to street fashion. The multi-award-winning songstress known for massive hits like ‘Cheers’ is undoubtedly almost everyone’s style icon. The ‘Wild Thoughts’ hit-maker is a celebrated lover of the anti-fit fashion if not rocker-chic vibes. As a street fashionista, Rihanna will either trample over New York in high heels or sneakers! If you won’t spot her in oversized denim, then you’ll spot her in baggy shirts and shirtdresses. And if you won’t spot her in cute booty shorts, then you’ll spot her in the perfect mom jeans.
Call her a sartorial risk taker and I’ll back you up! Riri won’t fail to step out in nudes, or even finishing a hot pair of boots for a Tee and leave you mouth wide agape. As well, she is known for killing it at the red carpet with wild designs no doubt! That is just her! What I love most about her is her terrific street style. For a style guide, she will just do it fine, no wonder she was awarded the Fashion Icon Award by CFDA , right? Riri is no doubt an influencing trend setter both on the streets and on the Red Carpet. And now with her Fenty Beauty plus Puma line, she is undoubtedly predicting trends especially in the athleisure world.
Anyway, what do you think Rihanna would wear to a date with Drake? Being a trend-setter, she’d obviously ditch that little black dress that almost everyone tries to wear on a dinner date. And yes, she will perfectly embrace the men’s button-down! Now you see why such a piece is a staple? It can be worn even on dates beaus…
While Rihanna and Drake headed home from a dinner date, Riri had her belt removed…call it being full or what? But yeah, the over-sized button downs looks too perfect as a shirt dress, right? Rihanna’s style is just dope!
Trying to recreate her look, I also went for an oversized stripped shirt. This anti-fit trend is just perfectly fine with me no doubt! I think I love the men’s button-down too much.
Why the Men’s Oversized Button-down?
- It is such a free- designed piece that is definitely one of the best unisex pieces. Being oversized, it creates the perfect vintage menswear vibe.
- It is a versatile piece: one you can wear as a shirt dress, tuck in a cute a pair of shorts or a skirt for a cool boxy vibe or wear as the perfect off-shoulder piece when trying to go for a sexy vibe from the ‘80s.
I wore the striped shirt with a navy blue pair of shorts. To give my makeshift shirt-dress a more feminine feel, I kept the top button unbuttoned, allowing an open neckline. And to keep my ensemble from looking too plain, it is the little accents that make the look even much better: the thick belt is nice punch of blue color, and my sunglasses adds just enough of a statement. Stripes though…we all treasure them, right? I found this look perfect for warmer seasons. I mean, when you want to expose the inch of skin you got to the sun, just go for shorts. Well, I was not really basking though…
Well lovelies, if you’re still in a rut, let Rihanna be your style icon this 2018. But guess what? Be prepared to go bold while recreating her looks! Be ready to get some pounds of attention…but there are always ways to reduce the attention; like I would have chosen to wear a pair of denim thigh-high boots for my recreated look today.
Anyway, if you love the look, please let me know in the comment section below…
