How Rihanna Turned the Humble Parka Into Spring’s Statement Dress
Leave it to Rihanna to make yet another bold wardrobe statement in the span of one week. Yesterday in Hollywood, the Barbadian singer made waves in pieces from her Spring 2017 Fenty x Puma collection to celebrate a new pop-up shop.
While it had the same directional slant as her Coachella wardrobe—Gucci’s glittering bodysuit and Matthew Adams Dolan’s reworked denim tuxedo—Rihanna and her stylist Jahleel Weaver took cues from Brit Pop style for a haute yet sporty approach to daytime dress.
The fishtail hemmed jacquard topper might pass as a parka on most, but Rihanna playfully twisted the style and turned it into a dress. Enhancing the girlish vibes were equally athletic Fenty x Puma mules with the brand’s signature form stripe, which brought a subtle, tonal contrast and serious leg-lengthening effect.
