This month’s lookbook rida is one of our favourites. It combines the classic colours- red, black and white. The rida is a simple layering of borders with bold colours, paired with a few choice accessories. Featured in the lookbook is a chic black leather bag, a pair of killer shades and a funky stackable ring set. A pair of strappy heels or raised sneakers would complement this rida wonderfully.
This edition showcases a few ways one can accessorise with their rida. Everyone has their own sense of style and there are different ways to bring that out, from designing your own unique ridas or by combining it with a stylish trench coat, bomber jacket, chunky bangles or even a fedora hat! If you didn’t think it was possible – trust me – it totally is!
If you live in a place with cold climate, you must have a few coats. It’s always a good idea to invest in a smart black coat, which can tone down the brightest rida, making it perfect for a formal meeting with a colleague or work interview. There are so many types of coats and jackets out there, so it may take a few shopping trips to find one that works for you and your body type. You can go for a longer coat and a darker colour or, a bulkier bomber jacket, a big sweater, a puffer coat or a leather jacket to compliment your rida. Try out a few and find out what works best. Remember, not every style will work when you are folding (or stuffing) a pardi inside! Scarves and gloves are also a great way to accessorise – from woolly, warm scarves to silky ones which you can tie around your neck or loop around your handbag for a pop of colour! You can also get some beautiful coloured gloves with studs to add some glitz and glam to your outfit. Have fun styling!
