The puffer coat is a cold-weather staple that most of us love to hate—cozy and warm but with a reputation for Michelin Man–esque proportions. However, this season has seen the unlikely chic rise of the lo-fi piece in all forms, including a streamlined approach on Dakota Johnson, graphic styles like those sported by Travis Scott, and even vests on Jessica Biel and Reese Witherspoon. With celebrity favorites such as those from Canada Goose, Moncler, and Moose Knuckles leading the pack, what’s a style chameleon like Rihanna supposed to wear that speaks to her fashion-forward aesthetic but also combats the cold?
Witness last night in London, where the Anti singer stepped out in a three-quarter-length style reminiscent of those popularized by Ecko, FUBU, Sean John, and Tommy Hilfiger. RiRi’s gilded version was a subtle nod to the opulence of 1990s culture, while the fur hood amped up the luxe factor. Her coordinating bug-eye sunglasses played with tonal dressing, picking up on the saffron shade of her topper, and a monochromatic look underneath acted as a subdued counterpoint. This is one winter look that simply works.
