For Rihanna, being a cool parent comes naturally.
On August 12, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky stepped out for another date night in the Big Apple because even fly parents need downtime.
Rocky’s fit — a button-up flannel, graphic tee, slashed jeans, and, uh, Gucci adidas clogs — fails to hold up his end of the couple dressing bargain.
However, Rihanna makes up for it, delivering yet another style moment epic enough to maintain the couple’s stylish reign alone.
The CEO of all things FENTY donned a vintage RZA t-shirt with a mini skirt and thigh-high boots combo, which I was a bit disappointed to discover wasn’t skants (short for “skirt-pants”).
Rihanna may not have ventured into skants-dom today. However, I’m still rooting for a future Rih style moment featuring the unhinged trend. Watch out, Ashley Tisdale.
Rounding off the look, Rihanna shielded her eyes with Rick Owens shades as she sported an archive Gucci by Tom Ford Spring/Summer 1996 python bag on her shoulder.
In the end, she singlehandedly saved the couple’s prevailing style status while continuing her own ‘fit supremacy. Iconic.
Rihanna’s slouchy over-the-knee boots, straight from Y/Project’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection, are undoubtedly the chef’s kiss moment of her date night ‘fit.
After all, she is a Glenn Martens girl, having enjoyed the designer’s cozy Diesel and Y/Project pieces during her stylish baby bump slay.
Rihanna’s Y/Project boots also resume the musician’s previous boot-ment phase.
Suddenly, it feels like 2016-2017 again when the singer’s flappy Vetements, glittery Saint Laurent, and belted Manolo Blahnik boots ruled street style and her ANTI world tour.
Ah, the days when we got music and looks simultaneously from Rih.
Now in August 2022, Rihanna, our CFDA-crowned fashion icon, is making slouchy statement boots work in the middle of summer as only she can.
No, seriously, only she is capable of such style sorcery during the dog days.
