Featuring the good, the bad and the ugly, “Look of the Week” is a regular series dedicated to unpacking the most talked about outfit of the last seven days.
While her RZA tee, sunglasses and snakeskin-print bag already made for a casual but chic outfit, Rihanna took things to the next level with a pair of gigantic, slouchy boots that brushed the hem of her denim miniskirt.

Similar styles have also been popping up on runways, with several designers reviving over-the-knee boots as part of bulkier silhouettes. During the Fall-Winter 2022 season, Acne Studios’ towering riding boots brought edgy drama to Paris Fashion Week, while Isabel Marant sent a fleet of models down the catwalk in slouched thigh-highs (though theirs were notably slimmer than Rihanna’s).
Elsewhere, Vivienne Westwood created sculptural teal and white versions, Chanel pushed the boat out with a sturdy pair of thigh-high rain boots and Vetements created a pair of bold gender-neutral buckled boots.
It remains to be seen if Rihanna’s gargantuan take on the trend will go mainstream. There are, after all, some things only RiRi can pull off.
