People take fashion risks all the time, but when it comes to Rihanna and her fashion game, she takes it to a whole new level. Not many people can wear a metallic Dries Van Noten outfit to the pool and rock a mullet – at the same time. She’s also been spotted flawlessly wearing a sporty fiery orange color from head to toe. Ri-Ri has written her own book on how to turn heads when it comes to fashion.
Rihanna Is a Source of Fashion Inspiration
Aside from being one of the main sources of fashion inspiration, no matter if she’s vacationing in her native home of Barbados or walking the streets of New York City, Rihanna’s outfits are always telling the future. They tell us what styles are going to be in and what’s on the way in terms of fashion.
Before quarantine life became such a normal life for everyone, Rihanna was already wearing elevated loungewear – from sweatsuits to hoodies and more. She hinted at the upcoming trend of voluminous proportions like wearing wide-leg statement pants and oversized outerwear.
We owe Rihanna, not just for her incredible music, but also for always keeping us in the know on what’s coming next when it comes to fashion. Below are 5 Spring fashion trends that Ri-Ri already slew way before we knew it was trendy.
1. Monochrome Outfits
Monochrome outfits are in style and Rihanna has been spotted in some of her own over the years. Rihanna owns her clothing line, Fenty, and she recently released its monochrome outfit including a body-hugging dress and oversized coat. However, she didn’t stop at just creating a basic monochrome look. She went above and beyond and chose to use a bold color. She designed a head-to-toe fiery orange monochrome outfit.
2. Body-Hugging Dresses
Body-hugging dresses make a bold statement on their own. Rihanna hinted early on that they will be making a strong comeback for a few seasons. She was spotted at an event wearing a bright pink clingy dress that highlighted her figure.
3. Mini Bags
Back in February 2020, Ri-Ri showed off her casual outfit as she carried a mini bag. These not-so-practical bags are in style and all the rage in fashion these days. Designer brands like Bottega Veneta and Jaquemes have some of the most popular ones.
4. Shorter Hemlines
A shorter hemline is always a good idea. Rihanna has shown off this leg-baring trend on multiple red carpet events. Whether she had a jacket for a cover-up or not, the shorter hemline is something she can pull off.
5. Elevated Loungewear
Toward the end of 2019, Rihanna foreshadowed quarantine life and took over the fashion industry with elevated loungewear. She often wore luxury sweatsuits and made the style look good.
