Billionaire Rihanna can do whatever she wants; fashionwise, she can pull off absolutely anything that touches her body. Even a puffer vest! Worn as a top.
I can’t say the same for myself, because anything puffer makes me look and feel like the Michelin man. But on a recent date with boyfriend A$AP Rocky, the National Hero of Barbados wore a sleeveless puffer vest as a top and looked so cool. How does she do it? What are her secrets?
Specifically, Rihanna wore the Balenciaga Women’s Natural Hacker Cocoon Puffer Gilet. It’s sleeveless and has a high collar and drawstrings. She paired the puffer vest top with a dark brown silk midi skirt.
Rihanna loves to accessorize, and that she did with this look. She wore black and white monogrammed Gucci glasses with red-tinted lenses and lots of layered gold jewelry, including bracelets and necklaces. For footwear, she opted for a strappy, minimal-heeled sandal in a metallic nude shade. But what completes the whole outfit and makes it so glamorous is the shawl Rihanna wore as a scarf on her head. (It’s from the Gucci x Balenciaga Hacker Project collaboration.) You can check out photos of the whole look over at the Daily Mail.
Rihanna is and always will be a fashion icon, and she’s already off to an excellent start in 2022. She ended 2021 on a high note back in December, when she ignored the cold New York City weather and adorned a metallic purple miniskirt that was possibly inspired by Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century.
In 2022, it will be even easier to emulate Rihanna (at least underneath your clothes), because the billionaire is opening five Savage x Fenty stores in the United States this year, in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Houston, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. Rihanna announced the news on her Instagram. “2022, we coming in HOT!” she wrote. “We bout to bring you a whole new #SavageXFenty experience with the launch of our brick-and-mortar retail stores! can’t believe it’s actually that time, and I can’t wait for you to have this experience irl….”
