Style Like Her: Rihanna's Preppy-Edgy Chic

The Look: I'm sure many of us look at Rihanna and wonder how we could ever pull off such wild styles since we aren't necessarily bouncing around on stage performing crazy hits like "S&M," but it's entirely possible. Her traditional rugby-striped shirt gives us all a little nudge in the sweater/striped direction of our closets, and by adding funky separates, you get a great balance of prim meets funky. Proceed with caution when it comes to the fire engine red hair.

Getting It Right: While Rihanna dares to bare (she is a popstar, it's allowed), the street version of this style calls for a little more coverage. Opt for a looser, t-shirt like striped rugby tee in colors of your choice. From there, though, feel free to get in touch with your inner rocker girl and bear some sheer tights underneath skimpy bloomers. Instead of the gypsy belt Rihanna pulls off onstage, try a more structured, but still blingy, gold woven belt with a sophisticated bangle. Prance around in sky-high, bad ass black booties, and you'll have a look just like Rihanna's without looking too costume-y.
