If anyone can pull off that eccentric, dark, rocker chic look, it would hands down be the Queen of edge, Rihanna. I, for one, am a huge, no, overly infatuated, die-hard fan of RiRi and her style that is found to be ever changing. She has gone from sweet and naïve to dark grunge, flirty feminine to her most recent: beautifully edgy and when in search for this week’s Fashionista, my mind couldn’t help but jump to compare her style to that of Rihanna’s. Everything about this Fashionista is edgy, different and I love it.
From head to toe, this Fashionista exudes a cool, unique vibe, staying true to her personal style. What first caught my eye about her look were her stellar jet black stiletto nails — which is what instantly made me think of Rihanna's notorius nails. Not many can pull off these pointed talons, but when paired with an ensemble like this, it is simply perfection. As for her actual outfit, this Fashionista was spotted wearing a basic white t-shirt knotted at the waist underneath a black zip-up hoodie. To mix up the color palette and textures, she added on a denim vest for an unexpected twist. Finishing off this look with skinny black leggings, which utilize two different types of fabrics giving these skinnies extra depth lead to the infamous spiked Jeffery Campbell Litas this fashion-forward beauty is donning. The outfit as a whole represents this Fashionista’s individuality, much like Rihanna showcases her uniqueness; being your own person and having your own sense of style is something that should certainly be a priority for everyone.
To achieve a look similar to this, start by looking to your style icon or pull inspiration from your surroundings and build your ensemble around that. Choose colors, textures and silhouettes that you love and that will flatter your body type. Mix in classic, staple items, like these black leggings with a few current trend pieces. Once you have this all together, your personality will certainly shine through your style which will make your look that much more fabulous.
