You guys, something is happening. Ladies everywhere (Selena Gomez, Jessie J, and now Rihanna!) CANNOT get enough of these faux suspender tights! Maybe it’s because the weather is finally getting cold enough to bust out that ONE amazing pair you’ve been waiting to wear all summer long, but we’re really starting to get into this look. Come to think of it, there are SO many things we love about Rihanna’s London street style outfit! We’re super into how she mixes textures and fabrics for a super chic layered ensemble that you can mix up throughout the day depending on the weather. RiRi wore a white graphic tee, oversized dark denim jacket, and fur vest paired with American flag print shorts (also worn in Beyoncé’s “Party” music video!) and THOSE amazing suspender tights. For accessories, she layered on the gold necklaces, stacked on some bracelets, threw on some oversized sunnies, and finished her look with some fierce black leather platform booties. And now that we’ve stared at her outfit for, um, WAY too long, we officially want to cop it ALLLL!
If someone tells you shorts are only for summer, they are SO wrong. We love these flag print denim cutoffs for so many reasons, but mostly because they add a pop of color to any dark, wintery ensemble in a snap. Snatch up these bad boys from Topshop for $70 (Hurry! Some sizes are running out!) and grab her to-die-for Henry Holland tights from Topshop for $24 while you’re there. Um, wait, I’m sorry, those tights are only $24?! BRB, y’all. *flees from computer to nearest Topshop store*
