If Rihanna isn't your style icon, we can't be friends... seriously.
I'm sure many of you have seen the Wild Thoughts video and can agree that our girl Rih is giving a LEWK! I was mesmerized by the vibrant colors and that red lip. She gave us major sex appeal with her peek-a-boo bandeau top and form fitting floral pants. With some major inspo on the brain, I decided to recreate it for myself.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: inspiration, not imitation! The key to making a look "your own" is to take note of certain elements from the outfit that can be incorporated into the recreation. Take Rihanna's top, for example... although not an exact match you can see that both of our tops are off the shoulder, feature ruffles and the sleeves have some sort of detail to them. The pants are a huge part of the outfit so of course I had to find some a floral print but I chose a different color palette instead. They are still a high waist cut which allowed me to show some skin, similar to Rih. A red lip is always a good idea so I kept that element as well. It isn't an exact replica but hopefully you get the picture of how I executed my inspiration. And let's face it, I couldn't come close to the bad girl even if I tried!
