If I had to deem one item of clothing as being totally badazz it would have to be a leather jacket. Maybe it’s because it literally takes a hammer in order to beat it into submission to flatten stitches and have it take form. Or then again it could be the decades of Hollywood films that have shown action heroes and bad guys as well as girls wearing one thus giving off an exclusive “cool factor.” Whatever it may be the reason one fact remains… it’s just simply an iconic look. With that in mind, a Dries Van Noten leather jacket spotted on a sexy music star is fitting that description to a “T.”
How do you take a classic couture statement and make women want to wear it over and over again? As any major designer knows you have to revision it and make it fresh again. The leather jacket has been modernized season after season with details ranging from sleek to intricate.
I’m infatuated with the Dries Van Noten leather jacket spotted on Rihanna as she made her way through the streets of NYC. The embellishments make it an edgy, yet fun jacket to want to sport. Absolutely love all of the patchwork, pins and hanging key chains that have give the Dries Van Noten leather jacket an effortless rocker vibe. Being nicknamed Badgal RiRi it is like she was born to wear this jacket. It completely fits her style and aesthetic.
Rihanna turns heads with her designer threads. How did she finish off her look? Here is a style cheat sheet:
Pants: Citizens of Humanity Avedon Slick Skinny Jeans in Axel
Shoes: Celine Optic White Spring 2016 Rodeo Boots
Hat: X Girl Twill Logo Cap
Sunglasses: Adam Selman x Le Specs The Hunger Glasses in Satin Black.
Handbag: Dior Diorever Tote Spring 2016
Jewels: Dior Cannage Bracelets
All in all Rihanna’s outfit would retail for over $16,000! However, would we expect prices to be any less for designer fashions? Of course not and our lovely RiRi only deserves the best for all of her hard “work” (sorry, still addicted to the song LOL).
