Style Profile: Rihanna

Rihanna is and has always been a risk taker. Her take-no-prisoners, no-holds-barred attitude certainly spills over to her music, and of course, to her style.

Her bold personality is expressed through her ever-changing style. From her glamorous and sexy red carpet appearance, we can often see a lot of sartorial surprises. From her casual and effortless street style, we can plainly see RiRi’s love for high street and trendy style. For you fashionistas, Rihanna is a major source of fashion inspiration. She’ll make you think twice before stepping out in a boring outfit, that’s for sure. Even the most basic denim and tee, when styled by Rihanna, transforms into an ensemble with flair.

Here are some of my personal picks of Rihanna’s best style moments:


Instead of your usual tee, reach for an oversized blazer and sport it as a top on its own. It’ll add a polished yet edgy element to your casual favorite, the denim cutoffs. Take note of the choker RiRi is accessorizing this outfit with, it’s a subtle way to give your look a more fashion forward feel.


Shirtdresses and white sneakers have been a staple of chic and in-the-know fashion lovers for a couple of seasons now. This shirtdress with a longer and more dramatic silhouette becomes even more cutting edge with lots of cleavage combined with minimalist metallic jewelry. I love the top knot that she’s rocking here too!


For your next night-out, resist the urge to step out in your little black dress and glam up those comfy boyfriend jeans. Take a cue from Rihanna and let the sparkle do the talking. The matching holographic silver heels and clutch plus the sequined cropped top come together to make these jeans evening appropriate.


Rihanna’s style is more on the casual and street side, but that doesn’t mean she can’t clean up nice and look as sophisticated as the best of them can. In fact, Rihanna has consistently been pulling off jaw-dropping red carpet style moments. Especially noteworthy is Rihanna’s alluring yet modern aesthetic. She always picks out gowns and frocks that show her amazing curves, while adding unexpected elements that make her stand out from the crowd even more. The slit and deep V are daring details in this look, but since the cut and color of the gown is conservative, it totally works.


Leave it Rihanna to pull off an all pink ensemble with aplomb. The reason why this monochromatic outfit work is the different textures that make the one color seem multi dimensional, and avoid this look being too one note. The fur and the patent heels complement the impeccable tailoring of the pink suit perfectly.

Which Rihanna look did you like best? I know for sure that there are loads more where these looks came from.
