Cop Rihanna’s steez.

While we are big fans of Rihanna’s style, it’s, um, not always easy to dress like her. See-through skirts just don’t fly at the office and we tend to wear shirts when we go out to dinner. There are a few Rihanna-helmed trends that we would like to get in on, though, like wearing your robe outside and borrowing Drake’s Astrid Andersen coat. Between Astrid Andersen, Balmain, and Chanel, there are a lot of Rihanna looks that we can’t afford, either, which is why when we saw her in a Lovers + Friends sweatshirt, we knew we had to jump at the opportunity to cop some RiRi-approved clothing for ourselves.
The sleeveless gray sweatshirt is pretty ideal for transitioning seasons—it’ll keep your upper body warm, but let your arms enjoy the warm air. Until it’s actually hot enough to go sleeveless, though, it’s perfect to layer under a coat. No sleeves means no bulky arms! It’s like a very elaborate dickey. The neon orange text will also let people know that you’re a lover, not a fighter. That’s a pretty good message to broadcast, IMHO.
At $115, the sweatshirt is a little steep, but as you can see, it looks good with both jeans and graphic print shorts. Between its multi-outfit capabilities and the fact that Rihanna likes it, it’s something I’d buy ASAP. With a highly coveted Rihanna endorsement, things tend to sell out quickly.
