For the average shopper, Rihanna‘s style may seem out of reach.
The singer-turned-designer is keen on turning the outrageous into the remarkably wearable. One look at her outfit and you’ll probably think to yourself, “Oh wow, that does look good,” hence her trendsetter status. Her newest out-of-the-box obsession: crazy, oversized denim. Street style has been overtaken by a number of her denim ensembles created by Matthew Adams Dolan, who graduated from Parsons in 2014.
Yesterday, the pop star was spotted at the NBA Finals, supporting the Cleveland Caveliers, in a black, oversized denim top by Dolan, paired with Citizens of Humanity jeans and Balenciaga boots—and the fashion crowd went wild.
The look is effortless, seemingly comfortable (as is everything oversized), while instantly elevating your outfit to an “It Girl” level. And, surprisingly, it’s easy to recreate. First thing you need: an oversized jacket that’s a few sizes larger than you’d normally buy. To turn a normal jean jacket into a Rihanna-inspired piece, keep the top bottoms unfastened and bare your shoulders. To keep it in place, you can add a waist belt (like this one).
Pro tip: Don’t be afraid to play with the buttons. They don’t have to align evenly.
There’s another noteworthy way to rock oversized denim: pair an oversized button-down shirt with a tighter, corset-like jean jacket. If you don’t button the shirt, you can sport an off-shoulder look with ease.
