How would YOU Wear It? Rihanna

I give Rihanna a lot of props for making bold fashion choices. But sometimes, they're too bold for my taste. Here, at MTV's TRL, the singer looks like she stepped out of a bad 80's music video. Individually, the pieces in her outfit are nice. Take for example the loose black and white tiger-print blouse: it's very chic and flattering. But paired with bright yellow skinny jeans, it can be too much. The larger-than-life gold earrings Rihanna is sporting are also way out there. They don't suit her jagged haircut and they're just too big for her tiny head.
I would have done a lot of things differently, so bear with me. I would have first ditched the enormous earrings and white patent pumps. I would have saved the blouse for a more chi-chi event. I would have kept on the yellow skinnies because they're appropriate for TRL. On top, I would have worn a simple tight grey tee and on my feet, I would have worn white peep-toe pumps. I would have also opted for silver jewelry! How would YOU wear it?

I don't mind the yellow pants and the pumps. Definitely not boring. But the earrings have to go - I agree that gray would've complimented the pants. A tee works - maybe a thin cashmere one?

I would have worn a more structured top that was solid gray. Lost the huge earrings and gone for studs. I would have kept everything else even the white pumps. I usually hate white shoes but they look good against the yellow

I loove the pants... take off the earrings, add a thin gray sash so the top looks like an empire top... and wear round toe dark gray pumps.

i would keep the yellow skinnies because colors are so much fun for me... replace the top with a vintage graphic 80's tee in white w/ some electric colors, black platform hells (louboutin), a black leather cropped jacket (mike&chris) and gold jewelry maybe stud earrings and bangles... white and gold preferably. i :love: the 80's inspired outfits, but if i sport it, i have to keep in mind to make it a bit modern.

i would never ever wear bright white pointy-toe pumps. it just looks tacky. maybe a creme or an off-white...but never titanium white. bleh.

Ditch the earrings and the pumps, and I agree with the recommedation for white peep toe pumps (or flats in Rihanna's case since she's so tall). I like the top with the yellow skinnies though!

I would lose the worst part of the outfit which is the banana pants, and substitute red or coral. Then do smaller hoops.

The shirt is loud. The pants are loud. The earring are loud. Choose one, let everything else be quiet.

Black skinnies, white tank top. That's all. She should keep it simple, she's already beautiful anyway.

Ugh, lose the earrings, pumps and jeans. Wear a black mini skirt or shorts and some red peep-toes.
