We’ll be honest, after we oohed and ahhed over Rihanna’s debut River Island collection, we immediately hit up their online store to check out (see: buy) all our favorite pieces. We really couldn’t get over one particular top from RiRi’s collection, though. You know the one–it’s the medium wash jean top with buckles and pockets on the front. Basically, it looks like the top portion of overalls were chopped off and made into a shirt. We mulled SO. HARD. over what we would wear this with but came up short. I mean, something this cropped certainly isn’t work appropriate and pairing it with similar-colored jeans seemed odd. We could’ve just worn straight-up overalls! Lucky for us, Rihanna has been sporting tons of her River Island pieces as of late, and just last night she snapped a pic of her wearing—you guessed it—the denim crop top! Let’s see how she wore it.
Ri Instagrammed a photo of her head-to-toe ensemble, which included a cropped pullover hoodie, super dark skinnies, untied boots, and, of course, the oh-so-infamous top. We never EVER would’ve thought to throw this bad boy over a hoodie, but we’re surprisingly into this ’90s streetwear look. She accessorized with a graphic print backpack, opaque sunnies, a backwards cap, and gold Chanel earrings. For a feminine touch, she sported burgundy lips and bright red stiletto nails. Hot! We can’t get enough of how comfy and cool she looks (well, she is Rihanna) in this layered ensemble. So much, in fact, we may think about swiping up that top after all! But tell us—what do you think about Rihanna’s layered look? Let us know in the comments below!
