Rihanna walks the streets of NYC in style. The “Do Ya Thang” singer was spotted while out and about in New York City on Tuesday night.

For the ensemble, Rihanna donned a black and blue plaid oversized jacket by Balenciaga that featured a zipper and two big front pockets. Underneath, she wore the label’s black stretchy turtleneck and leggings that added some functionality to the look. She accessorized with a black Raf Simons baseball cap and glittery dangling earrings.

The “Work” singer has had an affinity for oversized styles as of late and most recently was spotted out and about with boyfriend A$AP Rocky while wearing a red puffer that doubled as a dress coat. She has also shown off her penchant for leatherwear and how sleek a head-to-toe leather look can appear. But even when she’s not walking the streets of NYC, she’s on Instagram posting photos of her wearing oversized bombers, slouchy jeans and Louis Vuitton boots that all have her distinct eye for fit and design.

Rihanna has also made a name for herself within the fashion industry and has two businesses, Savage x Fenty and Fenty Beauty, to her name.
