Like any good #Navy member, we've got our Instagram post notifications turned on for our girl Rihanna so we can get updated on her every movement in real time. Last night, she hit us with another pantsless 'fit that made us want to immediately shop her entire look. Luckily for us, it's an accessible outfit designed by none other than the bad gyal herself courtesy of Fenty x Puma!
Honestly, praise Rihzus for this demonstration in styling Fenty x Puma's new ankle strap sneakers. Though we love everything from the line, we weren't quite sure how to wear these sneaks and thought we might have had to opt for the simpler cleated creeper style to play it safe. Rih, queen of effortless cool, does not share our woes in fashion risk-taking. She put on her Stance sock collection in a matching colorway to achieve this look. We must say, with the addition of a mere ankle sock, these kicks are way more wearable and way less intimidating.
Let's give this sweatshirt some shine for a moment, though. RiRi borrows from the boys in the crew neck pull over with taping from Fenty x Puma's menswear collection. The school-athletic-department-inspired design fits perfectly into fashion's renewed fixation with logomania and bright, traffic-stopping accent colors.
One of the things we love about Rihanna's recent triumphs in the fashion and beauty industries is her commitment to creating items at an accessible price point. All the items in this highly-covetable outfit follow suit. The sweatshirt she wears retails at $160 and the shoes at $190 — but the added benefit of wearing the exact same outfit as fashion's go-to trendsetter? Priceless!
Rihanna makes a decent case for forgoing pants, no?
