Rihanna is one of the most celebrated superstars in the world of fashion. While she may not be on her road to becoming a fashion icon, she is very worthy of the honorable mentions she receives from the fashion community. Rihanna is bold in her fashion choices and known to take risks that usually work for her. Here’s a closer glimpse of Rihanna’s style over the last couple of years.
1. Trend Watcher.
We can’t give Rihanna all the credit for her fabulous fashion choices, since it’s clear that Rihanna and her style team pay close attention to the runways. The thing that works for Rihanna particularly well is her close eye to the latest collections. Rihanna spots the trends from the top fashion shows and implements them into her own wardrobe.
To maintain a sense of originality, she always manages to be one of the first stars to wear the newest trends. While other stars and fashionistas wait for the approval of the fashion editors before wearing an edgy trend from the runways, Rihanna doesn’t feel the need to get an approval. With this technique, Rihanna will continue to be a leader in fashion trends.
2. Signature Hair Styles.
When Rihanna first came into the music scene, she rocked the long hair look that didn’t seem to help her stand out among the other R&B starlets. Rihanna knew that one of the most crucial pieces to creating a killer and stand out style was to dramatically change her hair style.
She cut her hair into an asymmetrical bob to symbolize growth and a new level of maturity around the time of her second album, Good Girl Gone Bad . She also changed her hair from a dark blondish tone to a very gothic black. The cut worked perfectly, as women around the world ran to their stylists requesting the “Rihanna” hair cut.
She even went shorter and the short hair has become an essential part of Rihanna’s look.
3. Always Make A Statement.
Rihanna believes in dressing how she feels. When she was going through the dramatic break-up with Chris Brown after a violent attack, she wore comfortable and very casual clothes. She also travels in comfortable and funky clothes, usually sporting chic jeans with funky tops.
4. Use Accessories to Bring the Drama.
Rihanna loves accessories and she uses them to her advantage. She loves chunky earrings, classic gloves, and gothic spikes.
5. Bold And Beautiful.
Rihanna may follow fashion trends consistently, but she also pays close attention to beauty trends. She’s also not afraid to go bold with her make-up, and known to rock a red or hot pink lip occasionally. Dark colors look great on Rihanna and she wears these colors well.
6. A Killer Shoe Game
Rihanna’s that girl that always manages to get the last pair of the shoes that you absolutely love. She’s versatile when it comes to her shoe game. Rihanna rocks everything from sneakers to open toe knee boots.
Rihanna may not be a trend setter, but she definitely knows how to use the trends to make a statement. While most trendy ladies look like duplicates of one another, Rihanna manages to stand out despite her faithfulness to following fashion trends. She isn’t a fashion icon, but she is still one of the most exciting starlets to watch when it comes to style.
