Rita Ora first brought her bold London streetwear aesthetic to the red carpet in 2012, and we haven’t been able to keep our eyes off her ever since. Thanks to her cool mashup of menswear, punk and urban influences, the “I Will Never Let You Down” singer is already the toast of the fashion industry with a spokesperson deal for DKNY and a collaboration in the works with Adidas.
We love Rita Ora‘s fearless approach to dressing from her unapologetically loud accessories to her signature red lipstick. Taking a cue from the 23 year-old singer, we came up with several ways to spice up your wardrobe this season. Check out 10 style tips we learned from Rita Ora.
1. Sometimes, less is more.
The only accessory Rita Ora's gold Emilio Pucci gown needed? A bold red lip. Perfection.
2. Mix sporty and dressy elements.
Before Rita Ora, we never thought to pair a bomber jacket with high heels. She makes it look effortless.
3. Let your shoes do the talking.
Who needs jewelry when you can wear gold-plated Giuseppe Zanotti Scorpion T-Bar Sandals like Rita Ora?
4. Try denim on denim.
Rita Ora nails the trend by paying attention to fit. Her loose-fitting blouse and curve-hugging skirt makes denim look sexier than ever before.
5. Throw on a quirky accessory.
Leave it to Rita Ora to bring personality to the red carpet with a kitschy Edie Parker "Hold It" clutch paired with a sophisticated Barbara Casasola gown.
6. Embrace the rainbow.
An asymmetric neckline, rainbow print and gold sandals may be too much for some. Rita Ora rocks it all with panache.
7. Commit to your menswear look.
Most women wouldn't dream of wearing a menswear suit without a feminine pair of heels. Rita Ora isn't afraid of borrowing from the boys completely. The only girly touches? A braid, hoops and a red lippie.
8. Add some edge to your dressy looks.
Rita Ora adds an unexpected flair to a Donna Karan gown with lace-up sandals and a matching arm piece. The contrast of demure and dominatrix is red carpet gold.
9. Nail white-on-white.
The all white look can be tricky to pull off but Rita makes it work by mixing materials. She avoids looking too uniform by styling a lightweight sheer turtleneck with heavy textured pants.
10. Go for the bold.
A regular leather jacket would be so predictable with this rock-and-roll Jean Paul Gaultier look. So what does Rita Ora do? She wears a one-shoulder jacket like nothing we've ever seen before. Well-played.
