Yes, Rihanna wears the pants — under dresses.
While in Seoul, where she is celebrating Fenty Beauty’s South Korean launch, the pop star-turned-CEO turned heads in a sexy Jacquemus hot-pink gown, from the It designer’s 10th-anniversary collection, unbuttoned to show a pair of baggy cargo pants.
This means, for better or for worse, the controversial Y2K look is cool again.
Unfortunately, the figure-shortening trend calls for a pair of leg-lengthening heels, demonstrated by RiRi, who polished off her neon ensemble with sky-high pointy sandals from her Fenty line.
The bad-gal styling trick was also seen a week prior all over New York Fashion Week catwalks, including Jonathan Simkhai, Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Rag & Bone, and Brandon Maxwell — to just name a few.
Dresses-over-pants is nothing new: Remember when Britney Spears and Mischa Barton made tunics over jeans happen in the early aughts? Cringe.
Luckily, the 2019 rendition is much fresher. Case in point: this Rezek Studio version.
Another upside? It’s an easy way to rock a favorite summer frock into fall.
