Casual Elegance

Okay, so this photo was taken when Rihanna was going through her red-hair phase in 2010 but it still represents the musician’s ability to be elegant when it’s called for, even two years prior. Her bright red curly hair, the long sweeping black skirt and her textured crop top – they all mesh together perfectly to create a look that reminds us just how beautiful and simply stunning she can be. Take cues from this outfit and consider pairing a long maxi skirt with a cute flattering crop top – two items that are both on trend for this summer 2012 season.
