ESC: 30 Days Denim Banners

Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears may have it done first, but Rihanna has been reinventing the Canadian tuxedo for years now.

There's a headline almost every month capturing her latest turn in double denim, but it's not the fact that the "Love on the Brain" singer is simply wearing all denim—what was considered a fashion faux pas a decade ago—that is news. It's how she wears the look that's interesting and innovative.

Riri was one of the first to wear a denim jacket, partially buttoned below and unbuttoned up top, as an off-the-shoulder layer. It may look like a slightly uncomfortable or impractical trend, but sure enough, It Girls like Gigi Hadid and Hailey Bieber followed in style.

She took a closet staple—her favorite denim jacket by Matthew Adams Dolan—and showed us you can actually play with its structured silhouette. You can turn it into a cinched-in dress. You can mix and match it with other jean-like textures. You can wear oversize pieces and still be sexy. You just have to be daring enough to try.

The "Wild Thoughts" singer seems to be living in jeans this year—and we don't blame her. But it's definitely not just a phase. She'll be reinventing this look for years to come. How do we know? Her past all-denim looks say it all.
