Rihanna has never been one to shy away from a bold fashion choice. From that epic all denim ensemble she rocked in her 鈥淔ourFiveSeconds鈥 video to her giant Grammys dress, she鈥檚 always encouraging us to be a little braver in the wardrobe department. Maybe not 鈥渨ear a nude crystal dress鈥 in public kind of brave, but bolder nonetheless.

This past weekend Rihanna hit us with yet another risky fashion move. The performer snapped a photo of her chilling in the sun not in a bikini top, but in a scarf. She captioned the photo, 鈥渂ra by @Hermes #pooltime.鈥 Scarves aren鈥檛 usually our first thought when we think of poolside attire, but if anyone can pull the look off, it鈥檚 definitely going to be Rihanna.

Whether or not you鈥檙e up for rocking as much underboob as Rihanna is entirely up to you. If you鈥檙e not so into rocking your scarf poolside but still want to get creative with the winter staple, check out these links:
