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 launched her namesake luxury maison FENTY under LVMH last May. 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 in recent years, 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 32nd 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 notes 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 item in 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.
