Rihanna is well known for her eclectic and statement style, which definitely comes across in her final collaboration with high street chain River Island. Rihanna sticks to this seasons biggest trends and plays with texture and print, making the collection very diverse and exciting, all with a clear Rihanna influence. The key accents are tartan, floral, velvet and metallic, with an impressive evening wear range too for that glamorous New Year party.
Here are StyleClone’s key picks:
This crop top and coat make use of a bold tartan print for a stand out way to wear the popular trend. The roll neck on the top and leather collar on the coat are the finishing touches.
These tapered floral print trousers are incredible and would look great as an addition to a working wardrobe, for a night out or even dressed down. With a matching floral print, this sheer blouse also has versatility as well as being eye-catching. Add a chunky chain under the collar for a Rihanna inspired look.
Velvet is such a luxury fabric and perfect for the chiller seasons. Instantly glam up any outfit with this draped top which would look great with skinny jeans and some chunky heeled boots. Making the fabric of this maxi dress velvet instantly vamps it up. Wear with gold jewellery and red lipstick for a stand out evening look.
If you’re not the one to shy away from dressing loudly and are a magpie for high octane shine, then head to the metallics in Rihanna’s collection. Dazzle in this tuxedo dress as a quirky luxury item, or shake your stuff in this textured bodycon dress. Either way you’ll definitely stand out.
And finally, be the belle of the ball in this STUNNING, Great Gatsby style dress with chiffon sleeves and sequin detail. It’s the right amount of classy, elegant and oh so cool. Add these minimal strappy heels for a dramatic final look.
