Hey, how's your summer going? Good? Fine? Actually, it's technically not summer yet— shhhh, stop talking. Regardless, no matter how your summer is going, it is definitely not going as stylishly as Rihanna's.

Rih, who is currently in New York City before her ANTI tour takes her to Europe, has been heavily leaning into the warmer weather. So far, she's opted for daring sheer gowns, beachy maxidresses, costumey tulle, and playful accessories like pom-pom stilettos, fur clutches, and hair jewels. She's also been subtly promoting her new line of Zenon-esque shades for Dior throughout, pairing them with everything from tie-dyed tees to bathrobes.

In short, we could all learn a lot from Rihanna, and not just for her ability to sell literally anything. Above, scroll through her most Rihanna-y looks of summer so far, and stay tuned for updates (because you know she's not even close to done breaking out badass outfits).
