"She can beat me, but she cannot beat my outfit." —Rihanna

Whenever Rihanna serves a look, we all take notes.

We stalk her Instagram hoping some of her bad-gal-ness rubs of on us.

So how have we learned from RiRi this year? Let us count the ways...

1. She showed us that a choker adds the perfect amount of badass to an outfit.

2. She introduced us to the dashiki-jersey, which is actually a thing.

3. She flaunted fall florals in a way that didn't look like she was wearing a leftover sundress.

4. She taught us that a low plunge with flashy colors will definitely have all eyes on you.

5. She served feathered hair realness with some overalls, so we all scavenged our rooms for an old pair.

6. Because of her, a shimmery cape on top of a shimmery bodysuit IS POSSIBLE.

7. And can we talk about her jewelry? She had us buying literally five of the same ring to be like her.

8. She taught us how to pull off a sweater onesie with a bold lip and hip sneakers.

9. She showed us you can be approachable in head-to-toe leather by wearing more natural makeup.

10. She proves that if it's oversize, there's no need to wear anything underneath.

11. In fashion, RiRi showed us sometimes you gotta go big or go home.

12. Other things we can only sit and wonder about, like how she pulled off something like a clip-on dress.

13. We learned that canary yellow looks breathtaking on brown skin.

14. Wearing a mesh and fishnet workout outfit can keep you cooler.

15. She even showed us how to rock Marsala, the Pantone color for 2015, at the Diamond Ball.

We bow down to RiRi and humbly kiss the ground she slays on. Anyone who has a problem with that...
