STYLE GURU STYLE: Furry But Fierce

STYLE GURU STYLE: Furry But Fierce

Beyond her killer album Anti, Rihanna is slaying the fashion world. She is constantly changing the game and is my biggest fashion inspiration. In her 2016 fall ready-to-wear Fenty x Puma collection, she features tons of fur, mesh, thigh-high boxing boots, lace-up maxi dresses and oversized graphic sweatshirts all in black and white. The collection will be available this fall and, in the meantime, I am trying to contain myself.

Sheer garments have been huge lately and I am seeing it everywhere. It is a sultry trend but it is possible to rock sheer clothes without baring it all. I am wearing a sheer mesh black T-shirt from Missguided, a drawstring waist skirt from Forever 21, a thick black suede choker from Free People and white faux fur Fenty x Puma slides from Rihanna’s collection. This is a very sporty, street wear look. I’m drawing inspiration from the sheer dresses in the collection. I wore a black bandeau under my top because I’m not as brave as Rihanna, if you know what I mean. I threw on a sporty skirt with pockets (because every girl loves pockets) and slipped on the white furry slides and it was the easiest thing I’ve ever done. I love anything furry so these shoes are a must-have for me. I love the combination of punk black mesh with girly white fluff. This is a super trendy look, but I think faux fur and sheer clothes are here to stay for a little—or at least through fall 2016 when Rihanna’s collection drops.
