Rihanna Wore a Varsity Jacket–Blanket Poncho

While other celebrities have resorted to parkas and ski masks to cope with the arctic chill that’s set in over the past couple of days, Rihanna’s approach to cold-weather dressing is more reminiscent of a high-schooler at a football game than a toddler on a snow day. Yesterday, she stopped by the VFiles store in Soho to pick up this complex two-in-one piece of outerwear, which appears to confer all of the excess and warmth of a woven blanket while also providing the illusion of wearing a varsity jacket, making for a sort of trompe l’oeil effect. Heading to Da Silvano for dinner, RiRi paired the innovative garment with a red bandana scarf, ripped jeans, and knee-high brown boots.
