Leave it to Rihanna to show us how to layer up long gold chains perfectly. Rule one: more is more. Stacking several gold chains of varying lengths, the singer made the accessories—some long enough to skim the hemline of her mini skirt—a focal point of her latest outfit.
Rule two: gold looks best over bare skin. For a visit to Nobu in Hollywood this week, Rihanna selected a cut-out mini skirt by breakout London Fashion Week star, Maximilian. RiRi paired a green Telfar bomber jacket with the summery white spring/summer 2021 mini skirt, and a matching knitted bralette that showed off her layered jewellery to full effect. And swinging by her side? A forest-green Louis Vuitton mini bag. She added a white pair of her signature strappy wrap-around sandals as a finishing touch.
In recent months, the singer has been embracing longer length chains. Case in point: at the end of April, she decked out her neck with a single, extremely long gold chain. She added still more statement accessories on top: orange-tinted shades and a Versace autumn/winter 2020 headscarf, while out in Los Angeles.
There’s one shade the singer has been playing with too: green. Since March, online searches for shades of green—particularly sage and emerald—have been rising, and so too has Rihanna’s interest in the shade. Leaving her favourite Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Los Angeles recently, she wore a fluffy Marni cardigan, a black lace-trimmed camisole, a pair of forest-green Brain Dead track pants and an oversized brown shearling jacket. In a similar style move, she carried a coordinating green mini Goyard bag.
Follow RiRi’s new mantra when it comes to pairing your gold chains with a hiked hemline: the more the merrier.
