It might only be Labor Day, but just you wait: by this time next month, we'll be decked out in sweaters, leather jackets and all the fleece we can get our hands on.
This is precisely why it's not a moment too soon to talk about Rihanna's gigantic muppet coat, which she wore out in New York over the weekend. Furry muppet coats aren't anything new style-wise (remember when the entire Kardashian clan swaddled themselves in fur for Kanye's Yeezy Season 3 show?) but they're still a tricky item to pull off, even more so when they're as bright as RiRi's.
You don't have to be Rihanna to pull off the look, nor do you have to drop as much dough. While it's just a tad too hot to pull off a gigantic fur cape, you can still incorporate a textured red heel and a tongue-in-cheek homage to New York.
Rihanna paired her Saint Laurent cape with a pair of denim cutoffs and her ubiquitous stiletto proving that a) there's no such thing as too much fur, and b) celebrities are innately immune to weather. Hey, New York might be cooling down, but it's not fur coat season just yet.
Switch up Rihanna's shorts with a pair of wide-leg raw-them jeans and a fuzzy red one-strap sandal. Show your love to New York with a cheeky sweatshirt, or pair with a tee instead.
