Rita Ora: My style is retro

Rita Ora

Rita Ora likes to get wardrobe inspiration from the "1990s hip hop genre".

The pop star shared where she gets the inspiration for some of her statement looks.

Rita likes to observe others to see what they wear and how they rock it before planning her own unique ensembles.

"I'm a big people watcher and seeing people in the streets really inspires my style," Rita revealed to Grazia magazine. "1990s hip hop is my favourite genre and '90s style is where I get my tomboy feeling from. I like to mix it up."

The fashion fan discussed some of the most striking outfits she's worn recently. Rita attended the launch of the British Designers' Collective pop-up store at the UK's shopping destination Bicester Village where she showed off her ladylike dressed-up style in an orange shift dress with contrasting bell-sleeve cuffs.

"For the designer's collective I wanted it to feel 'proper', so I chose this Roksanda [Ilincic] dress. I love her designs for when you want to look really well put together," she explained.

"I [also] love Jeremy Scott. Even though he's an American designer he could almost be British, because of that sense of confidence. This [purple below the knee] JW Anderson skirt managed to combine simple structure and minimalism with a sense of flamboyance. [About an orange all-in-one number] This was made out of a scuba outfit. I felt like I wanted to be sexy. The cropped cut top made me feel really slim. The colour was a great choice - it was so hot!"
