Arguably one of the most fashion-forward dressers in the industry, Rihanna‘s style icon status was cemented over the last decade when she was appointed Creative Director of PUMA in 2014, and later, when she made a splash with the launch of her namesake lingerie brand Savage X Fenty in 2018. Constantly moving the fashion needle forward, the Barbadian singer-slash-entrepreneur has been the queen of serving up show-stopping red carpet moments — think her Met Gala looks, including the memorable Guo Pei gown in 2015 — as well as iconic street style outfits (remember when she stepped out in that heart-shaped cape by Saint Laurent?).

In honor of the Bad Gal’s 33rd birthday on February 20, we’ve put together a style guide for those who’re looking to Rih-vamp their closet. Below, see some of Rihanna’s most frequently-worn color palettes and a few of her top wardrobe essentials.

All-White

Take your style cues from Rihanna, who can often be seen dressed in white from head-to-toe. When accented with the right amount of accessories — a pair of tiny sunglasses, some hefty chain necklaces and an en-vogue clutch — this minimal and classic look will easily take you from day to night.

Hot Pink Moment

A bestselling color featured in the lipstick line of the artist’s eponymous makeup brand, Fenty Beauty, fluorescent pink has been a staple in Rihanna’s events wardrobe. You don’t even need to try — the head-turning hue has its own way of drawing attention.

Canadian Tuxedo

It isn’t a secret that Rihanna enjoys suiting up in a Canadian tuxedo, so much so that she launched FENTY with a selection of jean separates that ranged from indigo corset dresses to oversized denim shirts. Recreate the singer’s look by pairing a cropped jacket with a mini skirt and boots in the same wash.

Wild Thoughts

From leopard pattern to faux snakeskin, animal prints have been a key element of the Bad Gal’s closet. Again, a simple trick to dress like RiRi is to go for the tonal look, so match your accessories to whichever print you’re wearing.
