We’re just going to start this by saying we love Rihanna. She’s beautiful, philanthropic, has starred in movies, sold over 280m records worldwide and successfully launched her very own Fenty beauty range and clothing line. Seriously, is there anything she can’t do? The answer is no.
What we’re currently obsessing over is her impeccable style. Never one to shy away from taking a sartorial risk (remember her draped head-to-toe in Swarovski crystals? Name a more iconic look, we’ll wait), RiRi proves that she is a sartorial risk taker who’s always ahead of the fash pack and is basically a walking goddess among us mere mortals.
So in hopes to reach the superstar’s seemingly unattainable level of cool and style, we’ve done some research (read: intense stalking), and found a six Rihanna-approved wardrobe items that we need in our closet, stat. Because if there’s any chance that we could be anything like RiRi, we’d take it.
It might just be due to the hot weather but Rihana has been rocking some figure-hugging mini dresses recently. From snakeskin with matching bucket hat in Sydney to celebrate the anniversary of Fenty beauty, that shimmery gold number to promote the launch of her Body Lava and a hot pink ruched dress at Fenty’s popup store in NYC. She’s slaying and we can. not. stop. her.
It’s no secret, Rihanna has a penchant for XXL coats and jackets. Whether it’s on the way to the airport or getting papped out on the streets, Rih’s big-coat-energy is rubbing off on us and we are living for it. Plus, it looks super comfy.
If there was one sunglass trend that dominated the past year it was tiny sunglasses, until Rihanna hinted her now live Fenty Sunglasses line. A quick scroll through her Instagram feed and it seems that big OTT shades are in and teeny tiny sunglasses are out.

Dubai... we had such a great time with you! A special thank you to @sephoramiddleeast for hosting us here!!! And to all of our guests who came to support my first ever Artistry and Beauty Talk! It was so fun to engage with you in person. Stay tuned for more to come @fentybeauty Shout out to my Pro Artists @priscillaono and @artbyhector Love you both so much!
We can list a thousand reasons as to why Rihanna is the queen of cool. A particular one we’d like to highlight is her ability to step over subway grates in stick thin heels – which left the internet shook – and brought her love for strappy, barely-there heels to our attention. She’s worn them for magazine shoots, music videos, at press events and Fenty campaign shoots. Basically everywhere. We love how it naturally elongates her incredible legs.
At this stage, there really isn’t anything RiRi can’t pull off (see ‘90s dress-over-denim outfit above). Whether it’s baggy, ripped or cropped if the paparazzi shots on Google are anything to go by, she’s worn them all.
A perfect example of our style chameleon’s ability to mix and match items that wouldn’t normally work together: the baseball cap. It’s all about balancing clashing styles and a baseball cap (as Rihanna proves), can give a polished look an edge and throughout the years she’s been snapped in caps. Is it because she loves them so much? Perhaps it’s her way of hiding away from the paparazzi? Whatever the reason, the girl nails it 100%.
