We’re putting your afternoon routine on hold for a brief layered masterclass, presented by decidedly not pregnant Rihanna. Now that the weather is officially on the decline, it’s important to dress to stay warm outside, but not melt away from heatstroke when you’re finally within the gates of your desired destination. Luckily, Rihanna just pulled off a perfectly layered outfit, so we’re featuring her as an example in today’s lesson.
While in New York City with boyfriend ASAP Rocky on Thursday night, Rihanna went for an all-black look, to the exclusion of a pair of white Loewe sunglasses. As the basis for the outfit, Rihanna wore a Martine Rose tracksuit and tucked the pants into a pair of pointy toe Balenciaga boots. The singer then completed the outfit with an oversized quilted nylon Miu Miu coat and a pair of French label gloves. The result is a mix of textures and proportions come together to create an interesting outfit despite the monochrome color palette.
It makes sense for Rihanna to get carried away considering she could get very cold after returning to town after a trip to the much gentler Barbados where she was honored as one of the country’s national heroes. She would undoubtedly earn that honor here too if she released a new album, although on Thursday night, she told the paparazzi the new music was coming “soon soon soon”.
