Rihanna Put an Unexpected 2020 Spin on the Biggest Trend From the '90s
While spotted leaving Giorgio Baldi in Los Angeles for the second time this week, Rihanna showed her unwavering support for the square-toe shoe trend last night in a pair of Fenty slingbacks. She paired the controversial shoe with the most oversized checkered coat we've ever seen layered on top of cream sweats.
Her coat is the perfect example of another celebrity wearing outerwear so large we're considering moving in. But unlike the extra large Celine Dion coat that went viral last year, Rihanna's coat is more casual and actually incredibly reminiscent of the grunge checkered shirts TV heartthrobs wore in the '90s. But, as the bad gal does, she made the look very her.
Instead of wearing it with ripped jeans like Leo or Keeanu would, she kept the look 2020 by wearing the checkered coat over the official sweatpants uniform of quarantine. Considering there are rumors of a second lockdown coming, it's a particularly fitting look for the time. It's the sweatpants glow-up no one saw coming. But if it's good enough for Rihanna, it's more than good enough for us.
