Advice In Style: How To Dress Like RiRi In The Wild West

The other day I was thinking: “what would it look like if Rihanna was in the wild west?”  (yes, I do occasionally have thought like this, I really couldn’t make this up if I tried).  Now, I like Rihanna a lot.  I love her music and she just seems like a super cool person to me.  But I’m not really like, a follower of her style per say…I think it’s cool but it’s not always really “me”.  That being said, I am not one to discard someone’s style just because I am not usually inspired by it.  The girl has super cool style.  And occasionally, she just nails it.

Yeah.  Whether you relate to her style typically or not, she’s just a super cool girl! In imagining this whole “Rihanna in the wild west” thing, I imagine it would go a little like that old movie Wild, Wild West…you know that not super amazing movie with Will Smith and Salma Hayek in it from 1999?  It was kind of a futuristic steampunk western.  Not all that memorable as a movie, but visually it was kind of fun.

I remember there being a nice mixture of rock and roll style and typical western garb.  So yeah, I think Rihanna could rock the wild west.  And I wanted to as well!

What you need for this look:
Attitude.  Obvi.  I mean, it IS RIHANNA after all.
A finger gun.  Because, well, I don’t trust myself with a real one.
A maxi skirt.  This one is COMING SOON in my new Velvet California line, and I’m loving this skirt more than any other maxi I’ve ever worn.  It’s just so…swishy.
An amazing punk western band geek jacket.  Yeah, betcha didn’t really know that mash up could be a thing right?  This one may be a Halloween costume, but DANG.  And that’s how I roll anyway.
Some animal jewelry.  Mixing animals?  No problem you’re bada$$ like that.
Cowboy boots.  I mean, come on you need these gorgeous things anyway.
And a bandana. This is the wild west after all.

Now you are fully equipped to channel RiRi while staking your claim in some uncharted territory.  Just all in a day’s work, people.

Happy land staking
