You can easily spot those people who have fun with fashion.  They can pull off looks few people can and they usually bring it!  Even their epic fails are admirable.

Whether you love her style or not (we’re super fans!!!), you can’t deny that pop diva Rihanna, who turns 27 tomorrow, is a fashion risk-taker and style maven. From the color of her hair to the bold and daring statement tattoos, the “Diamond” singer is known for her “Unapologetic” fashion, noteworthy hairstyles, and style collaborations that keep the fashion world talking and gawking.riri-and-baby-cveHere she is with her cousin’s daughter, Majesty.

Whether the “Good Girl Gone Bad” is dressed like a fashion sweetheart in an all pink poufy Giambattista Valli or rocking leather pants and fishnet tops, it is quite clear that Rihanna doesn’t look for style approval…she owns it like she’s the “Only Girl in the World.”

We can learn a lot from Rihanna about having our own sense of style and how to #DoYOU.

After studying her many looks over the years, I’ve picked up a few pointers of my own and there are 4 biggies I want to share with you to help you bring out your own dynamic, daring, and unapologetic style.

1. Change!

Each year your life changes so be willing to make changes that make you feel good, look good, and reflect the new you.

Your life changes, your style should too!

2. Be Unapologetic!

If there is a look that you want to try, like Nike says, just do it! Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, and when you do, so what?  Fashion is about being creative and having fun and is one of those areas in life where making mistakes can be totally worth it!

3. Add a personality!

Take a cue from Rihanna and commit to a “style character” when you dress. There’s a theme to her looks with everything helping to create an effect, a persona, and/or a mood. Whether she does urban chic and sexy; sweet and edgy; tomboy; girly-girl or glammed-up-flight-attendant, her looks are memorable because every element from head to toe fits and is on theme!

Go for a theme and carry the look (your “character” or personality) all the way through — from head to toe

4. Add color!

Color is a way of adding spice to your life. Whether it’s your hair or lip color, adding bright hues can brighten your day and bring out more of you or another you people don’t always see.

Like Rihanna, let your personal style help bring out your inner rock star!  In other words, #OwnIt!
