From receiving the Vanguard award at the VMAs, to announcing her relationship with Drake, Rihanna is having a pretty stellar week. Sartorially she’s been getting ahead of the star-studded crowd with a plethora of lust-worthy autumn looks, from double denim to oversized athleisure. Excited for the new season? Look to RiRi’s wardrobe for inspiration…
During the VMAs, the singer showcased a luxurious satin gown that channelled nightwear feels. The soft-to-touch fabric of the season, invest in slip silhouettes and layer camis over ribbed roll necks for a luxe accent to your day looks.
Denim is everywhere next season and if this Rihanna look is anything to go by, more is most definitely more. Refresh your summer denim with knee-high boots, and accessorise with metallics for that high-shine finish.
NEXT LEVEL ATHLEISURE
Sportswear might be having a moment, but the singer showed us how to take it to the next level on the VMAs stage this weekend. Contrast collar tees and statement slogans make way for corset, cut-out and buckle detailing for hyped new season style.
While bardots and cut-out details were our warm weather saviours this summer, autumn zeroes-in on the cold shoulder trend. Make like Rihanna with a sweetheart collar shirt (complete with statement sleeves) and finish the look with baggy denim and a pair of animal print heels.
LACE UP LOOKS
Packing a major punch next season, stitched up looks are the key to moving your wardrobe from the summer to the fall. Steal RiRi’s style with a black top and joggers pairing, rounding off the ensemble with chunky boots for a grunge feel.
If there’s anyone making a case for anti-fit clothing, it’s Rihanna. Often seen sporting longline sweaters, the dressed-down look has never been to desirable and looks to be essential as the cold sets in. Keep it low key with a pair of skinnies, and add a cap for that incognito look.
The knee-high boot and over-the-knee piece are shoe staples when it comes to autumn/winter and Rihanna was ahead of the game this month in her high impact ensemble. Dressing them down with an oversized t-shirt makes for an effortless look- accessorise with intricate chokers and a structured bag for a party-ready feel.
