As temps heated up in New York City over Memorial Day weekend, Rihanna wasn't about to let the steamy weather stop her from making a fashion statement. The "Work" singer, who continues to give us major street style inspo, showed off her fashionable versatility again when she stepped out in a bold colorful kaftan for a day of shopping.

As she made her way around the Big Apple Sunday in the bold, Dolce and Gabbana printed silk-twill dress, Rihanna strutted down sidewalks, completing her look with nude platform trainers and a red clutch covered in blue, yellow, and white spots and flowers. Aside from her bold red lips, the songstress kept her make-up simple and fresh, and rocked her hair in a bun adorned with flower accessories.

Rihanna is known for her effortlessly cool ensembles that set the bar high for off-duty looks just like this one, but she took things to another level when she went full glam during a coffee run last week. While making a trip to Starbucks, she sported a tutu-inspired green tulle dress and strappy white Aquazzara heels topped with colorful pom-poms.

With her fashion-forward choices, It's no wonder that brands like Puma and Dior have teamed up with the singer to launch various fashion-forward products. After all, this is a woman who can turn any street into her runway.
