Burlesque Outfit Ideas Rihanna

American singer, Rihanna is known for some bold choices in the wardrobe department. Nevermind some daring choices in her personal life.

This month Rihanna made a surprise appearance in London at Wireless Festival. We’re not saying a diamond grill on her teeth wasn’t sexy but we appreciated her London 2012 gear a lil more.

Wearing underwear as outerwear has been in fashion for a while now. So why not make a statement and cool off this summer by following Rihanna’s lead?

Burlesque Beginners

Rihanna’s style has taken many aspects of burlesque and vintage but made them her own by updating them. We have all the tools you need to do the same.

Start by getting some vintage curls with burlesque hairstyles for long hair. Then get the perfect rouge pout with red lip makeup for beginners.

You can also see Dita Von Teese’s faux nail range and lets face it, Rihanna’s bad gal body art is also a big part of the appeal. Get more ink inspiration with tattooed burlesque dancers and The Wam Bam Club.

Animal Print

A classic 50s bra shape is the perfect underwear from your lingerie drawer to use as a belly top a la Rihanna. It will give them a fresh lease of life while finally being able to show them to the world. Not that we don’t parade around in our undercrackers in public.

The Leopard Print Bullet Bra from our shiny new boutique is just the ticket. The lighter colour is perfect for the summer sun. While the faux fur adds another tantalising texture to your outfit.

It works great as a burlesque outfit idea with its vintage inspiration but of course you don’t have to wear it as outerwear. It can be our little secret.

Rihanna also pairs it with a high-waist. So the matching set, with our Leopard Faux Fur Girdle, would finish the look nicely. It can sit under a high-waisted skirt, trousers or shorts to be revealed later.


Alternatively, if you like the animal print look, without the statement undergarments, put some into your everyday wardrobe with our Jaguar Print Bag. This large handbag can store all your must-have products for festival fun. It can even add some glamour to your gym journey or dressing room dash, for the stage sirens among you.

Also accessorise like Rihanna with our Gold Belly Chain. It’s adds movement and belly dancing sensuality to any burlesque costume or summer sarong. Let us know what you think of this urban summer style and our newly relaunched boutique.
