We can’t help but take sartorial inspo from Rihanna! As one of the music world’s top wardrobe warriors, she easily lady’s-it-up for a red-carpeted fete, as much as she dresses down for a romp around London’s Soho nabe. In an ode to this incomparable rebel fleur, we’ve put together an ensemble with what we think are the most Rihanna-approved elements with an educational twist. We picked a color-punching platform, not just because we think Rihanna would wear it, but because we know she’d wear it perfectly.
Let us explain: it’s either your outfit maker or the least wearable wedge in your closet. Of course,ShoeDazzle’s Didi silhouette is a friend to Rihanna’s summer vacays to Barbados turned into long nights out, but that raving red can lead to certain sartorial difficulties, right? Wrong! When dealing with summer dressing, do as Rihanna does! A seriously saturated color wouldn’t put her off to the gorgeous pair of plats –– get the look by making sure the rest of your palate pared down! Here we have our Didi with flexible, simple separates and statement-making accessories. Given the flaring firepower on the feet, we wanted a really easy pair of jeans that weren’t to faded/multicolor, and not too tight –– remember: Didi is the star here, so the rest should be as blank as the sky (get it!?). Our thinking behind the white structured crop top was that it will a) be super sexy with just enough mid-driff before your look heads to smut-ville and b) balance out the bell-shape of the trousers perfectly. Top it off with a neutral envelope clutch and edgy baubles, and voilá!
When it comes to summering, Didi-style, the solution is simple: keep it Riri!
