Rihanna's "New Mum" Wardrobe Is Redefining How We Look At Postpartum Fashion

There's a reason she's called bad gal.

Rihanna is continuing to slowly reinter society since the birth of her son by slyly making public appearances across Europe.
Sure, the continent is experiencing one of the worst heatwaves on records, but Rihanna's stylish postpartum fashion is only making the temperatures soar.
America's youngest self-made billionaire has joined her rapper beau, A$AP Rocky, on his European festival circuit, cropping up across the continent in fashion-forward and demi-couture ensembles that rival that of her pre-baby style.
Earlier this month, Rihanna attended to the Rolling Loud festival in Portugal to once again prove she's dripping in the sauce by sporting the athleisure adjacent Balenciaga and Adidas collaboration.
In images, which you can see for yourself below, Rihanna can be seen wearing the subversive soccer jersey and quintessential three-stripe tracksuit. Of course, it wouldn't be a Balenciaga creation without the addition of a pantaboot.
Perhaps Rihanna's time in London has rubbed off on her, because this look is as quintessentially British as you can get.

Now, Rihanna has cropped up in Paris sporting a similar sportif silhouette.
Showcasing the most coveted style of the season (the motorsport jacket, if you're wondering), Rihanna donned Martine Rose's oversized sports jackets from their SS/23 collection, the Balenciaga x Adidas pantaboot and Prada's celeb-approved acetate runway sunglasses.
Of course, this outfit is a nod to last weeks outfit, which the 34-year-old subversively completed with unconventional accessories that elevated her 'fit to the next level.

While in Portugal, rather than donning the latex gimp suit that her outfit was styled with in Balenciaga's show, the star opted for a pearl necklace and vintage Memoire d'Hermes silk scarf.
Rihanna was clearly sartorially dressing like her surroundings, because the Fenty Beauty founder is clearly came for the Portuguese Avó's aesthetic.
Now in Paris, Rihanna has accessorised her outfit with an ostentatious display of layered pearl necklaces and expertly styled ring stacks. Emily, take some notes because this is how an American should dress while in Paris.
Earlier this month, Rihanna made her first post-baby appearance at London's Wireless Festival, wearing a new season Prada look by Miuccia Prada and Raf Simmons. In the words of A$AP Rocky, please don't touch her Raf.
If these two outfits are anything to go by, then we can look to the recent runways as the foundation of Rihanna's stylish postpartum wardrobe.
Rihanna and A$AP are still yet to bring their baby out on these stylish appearances.
However if their son is anything like Rihanna's postpartum fashion, it's worth waiting for.
