Rihanna’s 2016 was on another level of lit. Not only did she drop her wildly successful album Anti, but she hit the road for an epic tour and pretty much took over the fashion world. While she was out and about making her mark she was draped in the finest threads, of course.
W e’re taking a look at the year in Rihanna style.

Tell us this. How many people do you know that can say they've worn a heart-shaped fur with shorts and heels? No one? Same here, and for that Rihanna wins in this look.

The details on this look are out of this world. The leather pants and patchwork coat and graphic tee and white booties makes for a killer look.
