Cheaply Chic- Rihanna At The Studio Monday, Jan 4 2010 

Rihanna was spotted going to her music studio in Chelsea working on her currently released album, Rated R. Thank you to Ultimate Rihanna for the photo!

I do know that the bag she is rocking is an Alexander Wang Rocco Mini Duffle, but the rest of the ensemble, I am unsure of. If you want this look for less, check this out:

Forever 21 Splendid Career Jacket $15

Forever 21 Faux Fur Stole $8.80

Wet Seal 3/4 Sleeve Pocket Shirt $10

Xhilaration for Target Fashion Ruffled Mini Skirt $17

Urban Originals Boots $26

Urban Originals Studded Tote $40

Go Jane Temple Design Sunglasses $5.20

Forever 21 Metal Looped Cuff $3.80

Total Ensemble: $125.80

Now, the Alexander Wang Rocco Mini Duffle that Rihanna is rocking retails for $850 alone, so the cost of this ensemble, which closely resembles the shapes and colors of Rihanna’s ensemble, is not as bad as one would initially think. If you want to try and find a look on your own, here are the key pieces you need to have:

1. A cropped blazer

2. A fur scarf or stole

3. A plaid shirt

4. A neutral tone body-con mini skirt

5. Ankle platform boots

6. A bag with studded details

7. A metallic cuff bracelet

8. Round frame sunglasses

Cheaply Chic-Rihanna Leaving A Hotel Friday, Nov 20 2009 

First off, want to give credit to Ultimate Rihanna for the photo!

11-02 - Leaving/Arriving To Gramercy Hotel, NYC

Rihanna was seen leaving her hotel in NYC rocking a very simple cropped top and jeans, with a pair of fabulous animal print booties. Again, I’m unsure if the designers, but if you want an inexpensive version of this look, you can try this option:

Wet Seal Cropped Top $10

Wet Seal Skinny Jeans $25

Urban Originals Animal Print Boots $37

Fabuless Rhinestone Stud Earrings $0.99

Forever 21 Twisted Bangle Set   $5.80

Total Outfit: $78.79

If you want to interpret the look on your own budget, here’s some key things you need:

1. Cropped top: It can be printed, plain, black white, which ever color you prefer, as lonmg as it suits your body type. Plus size women can wear thr cropped top look as well, just layer a tank underneath, maybe contrasting colors to give it a unique edge.

2. Skinny Jeans: Skinny Jeans are still going strong, now seemingly a basic for your wardrobe. Women of all sizes can wear skinny jeans, as long as they fit properly and are the right rise for your body shape. If you have a belly, don’t go for super low rise, try to find a mid rise skinny jean. If you are average or slim, you can pretty much wear any style and rise. Pear shapes should go for a mid rise, especially if your waist is slim, and definitely a darker wash.

3. Printed Booties: It doesn’t really matter what animal, skin, or print the boots are, as long as they don’t look cheap or cheesy. Also, make sure to go for a rounded toe, pointy toe and animal print can be a bit too fierce, but if you prefer pointy toe boots, go on and wear them 🙂

4. Rhinestone/Diamond Studs: These are a great basic to have in your wardrove to wear with any casual ensemble, especially if you want to have a little glam yet keep it simple.

5. Bangles: Gold isn’t necessary, just make sure it goes with the ensemble, metallic bangles are preferred though.
