Rihanna left her hotel in Beverly Hills earlier this month in these super cool J Brand Farrah denim shorts, once again proving she’s definitely one to watch on the style scene.
We love her casual T-shirt and cut-offs combo, which is effortless yet still on-trend with the trilby hat adding a quirky and playful edge. Her oversized hoop earrings and long-length cross pendent offer a hint of glamour to an otherwise simple outfit, plus, her choice of brown brogues brings the look right on par with the ever-popular preppy look.
Despite it being a little cold for bare legs nowadays (well, it is November), we’ve been inspired by Rihanna’s easy daytime-cool to recreate a casual look for a change, so here are our top picks for stealing the singer’s style…
In a similar cut to the J Brand shorts, these reclaimed denim cut offs from ASOS are perfect for any season – wear with bare legs in the summer a la Rih Rih, or simply add opaques and a chunky-knit for winter. Just like Rihanna’s pair they’re an ideal high rise, and we love the light denim wash, too – ideal for dressing up or down.
This tunic by Truly Madly Deeply is dead-ringer for Rihanna’s T-shirt – not only does it bear the same black-on-white vintage-inspired design, it’s got the same slouchy neckline, too. Simply tuck it in to your denim shorts to re-create Rihanna’s look, and wear it over skinny jeans when you’re too tired to be a pop star.
We all need knitwear in winter to keep us warm, and Topshop’s slouchy cardigan in a vibrant burnt-out burgundy is perfect for this look and the current season – not only is it virtually identical to Rihanna’s cardi, the colour goes hand in hand with our new-season palette.
Rihanna’s hat is the statement piece of her outfit, and we love Anthony Peto’s ‘Salvador’ Trilby at Browns. Topping off this outfit a treat whilst adding a cool girl-about-town look, it’s a style statement you can rework time and time again.
Brogues have been the quirky ‘it’ shoe for quite some time now, and this pair from French Connection at Kurt Geiger are one of our favourites. We love the warm burgundy shade which match our choice of cardigan for re-creating Rihanna’s look, just like like the singer’s own tanned cardi and brogues combo. These shoes will keep toes warm when teamed with shorts, but will work just as easily with opaques and a dress, too.
