Rihanna worked the masculine trend in an oversized blazer at the annual Westfield Stratford City Christmas lights switch-on in London last night.

The Diamonds singer sported a blue, military style blazer from the Raf Simons Menswear collection for the ceremony, which she reportedly got paid £500,000 to attend.

Rihanna styled her Raf Simons oversized blazer with an unusual grey and navy blue striped top and trouser combination from Acne. She completed the look with a pair of grey suede kitten heels.

The star opted for a slick of black eyeliner, pillar-block red pout and styled her dark locks into a wavy do, complete with on-trend undercut.

Rihanna’s not the first celeb to rock the oversized blazer trend, with a number of celebs wearing the 80s style recently.

Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie sported a black, military style oversized Balmain blazer at an event in New York this year, styling the look with a pair of trusty black heels and killer red nails.

Meanwhile Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts rocked a plaid, lilac oversized blazer at the Mark Fast AW12 show at London Fashion Week, completing her outfit with a pair of matching plaid trousers and waisted belt.

Polish model Anja Rubik finished her photo-ready outfit with a black oversized blazer in New York recently.

As much as these stars look great in their oversized blazers, we think the trend might belong in the 80s where it started.
