Rihanna Champions Wimbledon Fashion Wearing Ralley-Ready Visors

09 July 2013

Rihanna's collection of visors

This week has been hijacked by Wimbledon mania (did you hear Muzza won?). Rihanna chose to hit the beach over the weekend rather than spending two days glued to the TV like the rest of us, but her head was over in Wimbledon as she was wore a visor with her bikini. Sharapova would be oh so proud.

This season tennis whites are a thing off centre court and RiRi is a big fan of ralley-ready get ups, but it's not just about the tennis skirt as visors are also big hitters. For her trip to the beach in Poland this weekend Rihanna wore a white knit skirt, a mint green bikini and feline sunnies, topped off with a brown leather visor. 

When we had a look through the Rihanna archives we noticed that the visor is an unlikely fashion move Rihanna works surprisingly often. Rihanna champions the look, teaming a tan visor with a pineapple print vest for a super cool ensemble on holiday in Sardinia last July and a black leather visor in London last February.

Athletic fashion has been upping it’s game for some time now, with designers from Stella Mccartney to Victoria Beckham showing sports-tastic collections. Just last week Designers for Tomorrow winner Iona Miron made the visor a key part of her knock out collection.

The visor is emerging as the ultimate Sports-Luxe accessory and what better time to show off this ultra cool look than after a British win at Wimbledon? So put on your Wimbs whites and visors, but we advise you leave the sweat band in the bottom of your racket bag or you might end up looking like Boris Becker.

Why not take a look at some of the best headgear on offer from Rihanna's visor designer of choice, Fleet Ilya, in the gallery below?
