5 Bold Fashion Trends That Rihanna Started

Rihanna has been recognized as a style icon to every fashion enthusiast. After all, the self-proclaimed “fashion killa” has been the recipient of the Fashion Icon award by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).

As she comes out with a vast range of fresh looks that don’t commit to one aesthetic, Rihanna proves that predictability doesn’t run in her vocabulary. In fact, there’s only one thing that remains clear: she’s a true trendsetter. Here’s a rundown of 5 iconic fashion trends that Riri sported first:
1. Colorful Furs

2. Denim

The ultimate favorite has got to be her denim cape over a blue netted fringe dress that she donned on a night out.
3. Braless
Rihanna This lands as the most important trend on the list as it has never been considered acceptable for women to not wear bra in public. But the moment Rihanna wore a crystal-embellished Adam Selman dress at the 2014 CFA Awards, it was the beginning of the braless movement. After all, it’s about time that women can wear whatever they want. The message that Rihanna sent out with through this look is a massive, significant statement.
4. Sleepover Chic

5. Heels With Socks

But it seems like Rihanna has been rocking the trend since 2010, as she paired her pumps with fishnets and fur.   In-article photos: Mirror UK | Vogue | Daily Mail UK
