Little can compare to the comfort provided by your favorite tracksuit. If you feel like you can’t let go of your WFH details just yet, you’re not alone – Rihanna agrees, too. And, she has a nifty way of styling it so you can continue to wear your comfy ensemble for any public outing. While pairing sweatshirts with sneakers or even UGG boots is a classic, the singer has more of an unexpected fashion combo up her sleeve. On a recent date with A $ AP Rocky, Rihanna wore heeled sweatpants – a smart fashion hack where she looked dressy and was always comfortable.
The couple were spotted having dinner at the Nobu in West Hollywood on January 10. For the outing, Rihanna dressed in a super loose gray tracksuit set, which one might assume too casual for the upscale Japanese restaurant. However, if you’re familiar with RiRi, she has the stellar ability to make even the simplest of clothes feel chic and elevated. Here, she took the opportunity to rock her casual pieces with something more elegant and luxurious: a pair of white slingback pumps from Prada. The shoes sported the fashion house’s distinguished triangular logo while the rubber soles gave the shoes a distinctive sporty feel. She covered herself in a two-tone men’s coat from Martin Rose and wore white sunglasses, which matched the white of her heels.
A $ AP Rocky, in turn, matched his girlfriend’s cool aesthetic with an equally stylish outfit. He was wearing a white and yellow varsity jacket, an Études x Martine patterned hoodie and loose blue jeans. The rapper finished his look with Tasman slippers adorned with flames from UGG. (The lifestyle brand is currently enjoying a major celebrity fashion renaissance.)
Perhaps a new fashion move for most, the sweat and heel combo is a habit for Rihanna. The singer, who has a penchant for streetwear, loves rocking this type of ensemble. In fact, in June 2019, she wore Manolo Blahnik sandals with a tracksuit set at the airport. And as evidenced below, last year the star also preferred a combination of tracksuit and heels.
Do you feel inspired by the singer’s dressy and cozy outfit? If so, write it down mentally and try RiRi’s style tip for your next party look. Her exact designer heels are still available in store, below. And for those who are fully committed to replicating the star’s outfit, make sure you have a gray tracksuit set on hand as well.
