Celebrity Style Steal: Rihanna

When Rihanna makes an effort with her outfits she really does look stunning, doesn’t she? Ok, sometimes we’ve seen her in ripped jeans and baggy sports tops but when she has to dress up for a gig she chooses clothes that are ahead of their time. The white shorts and blazer combination she wore for a gig in Los Angeles is elegant but also edgy at the same time.

But don’t think it’s just Rihanna that can do this as I’ve spotted similar items at Very so we can all copy her fab style. What’s cool about it is that it would be a formal tailored look if worn with a shirt but Rihanna picks a classic blazer and it fits her so well she doesn’t need to wear a top underneath. For a similarly tailored blazer try the South anglais white jacket.

For some added attitude, Rihanna style, you need some accessories. To take attention away from her bare skin, the Bajan pop star uses bracelets that sparkle in the light. And every going out outfit needs a bit of sparkle. The key is to layer the bracelets. The Guess prisoner of Love silver bracelet (below left) and a white beaded bracelet (below right) would look good together and the white would match the white in the suit.

Now you need some white shorts. Summer will arrive soon so you might as well get those legs out and white is a flattering colour, making you look more bronzed than you really are. Try the South linen shorts.

As this is still quite a smart outfit, Rihanna makes it cooler with her choice of shoe. Pumps are so popular right now! For ones like Rihanna’s there’s the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Ox Plimsolls at Very

So what’s stopping you from getting some Rihanna style today? It’s a gorgeous look for long summer nights.
