Rihanna served cozy maternity style while out on Tuesday night. The “Work” singer was photographed as she returned to The Greenwich Hotel in New York.
The Fenty founder covered her growing baby bump with a tan cropped hoodie. The jacket included an oversized hood, zipper detailing at the center and thick cuffs. She complemented the top with light-wash low-rise denim jeans.
The Grammy Award-winning musician and fashion icon accessorized with dark square sunglasses, a collection of gold bracelets, diamond stud earrings and a Louis Vuitton handbag.
Riri opted for a fresh face no makeup look and a glossy lip. The “Lift Me Up” artist’s swept her dark tresses off her face and let loose curls cascade on her shoulders.
Completing Riri’s look were Louis Vuitton’s Monogram Leather Dad sneakers. The chunky silhouette is embossed with the luxury label’s signature logo on the pull tab and has a high counter at the back, round outsole and thick laces.
Chunky sneakers were first popularized in the 1980s for their practicality, comfort and stability. Though the sneaker style’s popularity slowed in the 2000s, chunky sneakers reemerged as part of the divisive “ugly” shoe trend in the late-2010s, capturing the attention of all genders.
Rihanna is one of the fashion industry’s most beloved “it” girls due to her incomparable style. She has a natural knack for mixing edginess with chic styles, while also setting her own trends. When she’s not attending a formal event, her street style looks also take precedence, with her wearing intricate leathers, slinky dresses, billowing outerwear and slouchy denim that help her execute her vision.
