Stepping out into the busy streets of London yesterday was Rihanna. The trend-setting pop star was there for her Diamond World Tour and the fans and paparazzis gathered around the hotel entrance were only too happy to catch a glimpse of her.
We were totally expecting RiRi to wear something bright, dramatic and festive to fit the occasion but the outfit she walked out of the hotel in threw us off guard.

She was sporting a white-on-white ensemble, so fresh it totally left a clean feeling in our mouths. The pop star had on a white boxy shirt with a zipper accent on the upper right side. She let her shirt hang untucked over her pair of hot pants.
Until now, I still marvel at the ability of boxy shirts to elevate a casual ensemble into super chic status. It’s just the right top to pick if you are feeling in the mood to dress up but don’t want to go out of your way.
And then there’s Rihanna’s choice of accessories. We love the edgy vibe that leather visor added to the white-on-white pairing.
RiRi chose this ensemble to go all out in accessories. The chunky chain necklace was a nice touch and would have been our choice of accessory for this look too. But the real attention grabber is her gun-shaped earrings. It’s no secret that Rihanna has a fascination for guns. For as long as she keeps this fascination contained to just accessories, there’s nothing wrong with it, right?
While we do not share her love for guns, we do share her love for boxy shirts. Here are our white boxy shirt picks:
1. Jil Sander Structured T-Shirt, $353.77
3. 3.1 Phillip Lim Cropped Boxy T-Shirt, $325.00
4. Chloe Crochet Detail Top, $418.40
5. 3.1 Phillip Lim Boxy Top, $650.00
What about you, ladies? What do you think of Rihanna’s outfit?
