    Honestly, I think Rihanna has this ability to wear about anything and still look fashionable. Love her. I’d look like a crazy old lady in it but it works on her.

  2. Kanye’s Blonde Hair says:

    It’s been back with teen boys for some time now…

    • Parigo says:

      Yea, like everything early 90s it’s been back for a while.

        ” It’s been back with teen boys for some time now… ” ” Yea, like everything early 90s it’s been back for a while. ” what the heck is this saying our generation´s styles have ” been back ” when our generation, thus our styles, have never been away ? bloody annoying

    • Sigh... says:

      Yup. Another instance of “the streets” started it, the runways copied it (see fanny pack worn as cross body)

    I’m finding I can’t be distracted from the political shite-show today. Not even with matchy reptilian fashion.

    • Lilly says:

      @Pandy yeah, it seems like that would help. I’ve been back and forth from here to reading the news. That “paid protesters” thing above makes me fume. Once at a Native conference I was at a table with two older White ladies and they were spouting off about how protesters at Standing Rock were paid. I had family there at the time and said so, politely, and that I new they weren’t paid. They didn’t care and kept on. But, it’s really ingrained in our culture to respect your elders, so while they missed our looks at each other, we were not rude to them. They then also used racist language. By then we almost started laughing, because it was absurd. But, we are often targeted in this way, for generations, by people who try and force their way into our communities to “help” us out. We did give feedback later, however. The head of the agency called me a few weeks later and said they were no longer there. I didn’t have any satisfaction in that, however. I kind of hoped they’d try training, but they were angrier than we were.

      My week has just been non-stop anxiety and fuming rage. I’ve literally never been this angry in my life over politics. The rest of my life as a woman, controlled by a goddamn rapist on a conservative court, placed there by a president who lost the popular vote by more than three million.

      I’ve already told my mother that her siblings who voted for Trump can f*ck off, and I’ve been purging everybody off my social networks that I don’t know where they stand. I’m done. I’m f*cking done.

      • jessamine says:

        I’m constantly torn between purging these people and continuing relationships so I can keep dialoguing and maybe be a reasonable influence. But days like this drain every drop of perky mediator energy from my body. I feel so hopeless.

      • Snowflake says:

        I’m not going on a trip w my trump loving family ever again. I’m on the last couple days and between kav, trump and religion bullshit, i’m done. I’ll go visit when I can get in my car and leave but no more family trips. I’m done

  4. Pimpernel says:

    Why not? LL Cool J did it.

  5. Ramona Q. says:

    Bucket hats aren’t so terrible when the back part of the brim is flipped up like a fedora.

  6. Murphy says:

    I’m ok with her wearing it, not a ton of other people.

  7. BaeBae says:

    It’s been back, where y’all been? 🤷🏽‍♀️ Especially on the urban scene. Still looks dumb on mostly everybody but Rihanna though lol

  8. X says:

    these are our generation´s styles and never went away. how about these autotune singers step awf our deek.

  9. X says:

    ” It’s been back, where y’all been? ” what been back our generation´s styles never went away

  10. Wheeeeeee says:

    Rihanna is capable of making the burlap dress happen again.

    • JadedBrit says:

      @Wheeeee Or the pink garbage sacks that provided inspiration to Vivienne Westwood and the early punk movement.

  11. Wheeeeeee says:

    My friends and I play a fashion game… “What Are You Wearing?” (say it in a deep gutteral fakey sexy tone). You have to answer with two or three items that are not sexy and are a goofy combination. I’ll start… “What Are You Wearing?”…
    – hip waders and a prom dress
    – a hula hoop, tap shoes, and a snorkel
    – a swim cap, black knee highs, and granny panties

    Rihanna looks like Kate Hudson in that photo.

  14. JadedBrit says:

    Well, yes. It was fabulous as the cloche during the Edwardian Era, with a lower bucket brim post WW1, revisited in the early 50s, swiped as part of alternative culture in the late 60s and appropriated by counterculture in the 90s. I can’t wait for an excuse to unpack my cloche collection.
    And Rihanna can rock anything.
