We're not the only ones feeling the spring fever vibes around here, you guys. Leave it to Rita Ora to get a major head start on some KEY warm weather trends this month, from rocking that old-meets-new version of the gladiator boot to strutting her stuff in a basketball jersey dress. Now the pop star's bringing yet another unexpected piece smack dab onto everyone's radar: the clear jacket. We spotted the singer traipsing around the Coachella festival grounds several weeks ago, repping her trademark tomboy style (and uh, showing off her rock hard abs) in a graphic Carven skirt, fresh white Supergas, a HUF hat, and, the piece de resistance, her see-through moto jacket. Remember when Lady Gaga hopped on the transparent clothing fad early in her plastic frock at the 2010 EMA?! Well, Rita's version definitely a more wearable option for everyone who isn't brave enough to wear nipple stickers IRL. In other words, most of us...?

The more affordable tickets for the North American leg of Beyonce's The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour are long gone, but, and maybe this is a totally off-base suggestion, there are actually a few VIP packages still available. If you're anything like me, you probably COMPLETELY ruled out those tickets, and understandably so. I mean, several hundred bucks is no small price to pay for one night, even if it's with Beyonce. Plus, it's a lot harder to get a group of friends together when everyone is paying sooooo much. It's a situation that seems so out-of-the-question that you probably didn't even open up those VIP package descriptions (even with their fun names like "Upgrade U" and "We Like To Party"). Welp, we did. And what we found was surprising.

BAPE debuts 20th anniversary t-shirts designed by 20 creative figures, including Pharrell.

Earlier this month we spilled the exciting news that streetwear label A Bathing Ape was teaming up with some of our favorite creative types— 20 of them, in fact!— on a special edition collection of tees and artwork to ring in the brand's 20th anniversary. And sure, we all know that BAPE is no stranger to rad partnerships, but an epic celebration like this one means the roster of collaborators is NEXT LEVEL awesome. We're talking about everyone from music heavyweights like Kanye West and Pharrell, to artists like Futura and Stash, to fashion players like Jun Takahashi and Daisuke Obana. Each of these highly diverse (but equally cool) style setters have all placed their signature stamp on the new crop of not-so-basic white crewnecks.

Well, there's no denying it. Overalls are BACK! And these denim dungarees haven't only returned in full force, they've become a major fashion trend, popping up on the runways at 3.1 Phillip Lim, Agnes B, and Jason Wu, as well as on celebs like the current overall MVP, Alexa Chung. Before you roll your eyes at us, like, "Duh, Alexa Chung can wear ANYTHING and look good," hold up— we were skeptical at first, too. But after doing some seriously in-depth research (otherwise known as cruising our favorite online stores and stalking their selection), we've realized that overalls are actually way easier to pull off than they appear. You don't necessarily HAVE to go full-on farmer status, channel *NSync, or even rock flashy leather to get in on the look...there are tons of ways to reach a happy medium with style secrets like classic black, '70s silhouettes, or even prints. See the long and short of it here!

GO LONG

Denim dungarees get a cool new update.

Overalls were originally designed for blue collar workers way back in 19th century, thanks to their durable fabric and functional cut. Needless to say, these onesies have come a long, long way since their humble beginnings on the farms and in factories. This gorgeous image of Kate Moss sporting hers should be reason enough to give this trend a spin; but if that's not enough to convince you of their long-staying '90s popularity, these basic blues also made pit stops throughout the decade on stars like TLC, Destiny's Child, and even the Olsens. Despite the fact that Man Repeller has given them her seal of approval, ironically enough, the 21st century iteration of the look has a decidedly flattering appeal. Think Jane Birkin-inspired trousers, sleek colorways, and a slimmer leg. OR you could always go the Rihanna for River Island route with two-toned separates...

Rihanna Cat Bomber Jacket

Whew, it's Friday, y'all. We made it. *weeps silently in cubicle* To celebrate these last few (glorious) hours before the weekend officially starts, we wanted to share some of the best fashion news we found this week. Basically, Rihanna is on her Diamonds World Tour (LOL, like you didn't already know), and during one of her stops in Baltimore, she hung out backstage in THE dopest bomber we have seen to date—mainly, because it had a giant cat face on the back of it. So amazing, right?! I mean, we are mega serious about cat fashion here at MTV Style, so we immediately scoured the web to swipe up this exact jacket for ourselves our dear readers. Luckily, it's available to purchase at Urban Outfitters this very second, but it'll cost you 298 buckaroos. Pretty steep, but guys, it's a CAT. BOMBER. JACKET.

From her high-flying party anthems to her totally distinctive personal style, there's NO denying that our girl Ke$ha is an uncompromising original spirit...and that's exactly why we love her! But just in case you had any doubts about that fact, look no further than the singer's very own MTV show Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life, which gives us a peek inside her ridiculous everyday antics courtesy of her filmmaker brother (pssst, if you haven't seen it yet, drop whatever you're doing and watch it now!). Yep, the pop star has come about a zillion lightyears away from back when she was just a little kid making cameos The Simple Life, right?! So it's time, then, that we give Ke$h a well-deserved shoutout in our own way, by rounding up the absolute very best stuff for all the Animals out there. Whether it's repping her lyrics on your outfit OR just paying tribute with glitter or a gold tooth, crank up the music and check out these six ways to show Ke$ha some love.

Rihann Rottweiler Tee Leather Skirt

We don't usually pat ourselves on the back for our awesome internet sleuthing skills, but this time (and this time only!) we're gonna need to gloat a little. Here's the deal—yesterday we spotted Rihanna out and about in NYC sporting THE most badass spring ensemble (no pastels here!), and we needed to cop it immediately. But, of course, it's Rihanna, meaning the entire look is a wee bit out of our price range, so we decided to scour every corner of the internet to find you an almost EXACT replica of her outfit for under $100. You read that right—under $100. *brushes shoulders off* First up, her Givenchy rottweiler tee. She's worn another version of this bad boy before, and, unfortunately, the real thing could cost you nearly $300. Ouch. We found a cheaper (and less terrifying) version for only $16.00, which we think is pretty doggone cool.

Urban Outfitters will stock Della's signature colorful accessories.

Thanks to the past success of its Around The World offshoots featuring international brands like Wood Wood and MiniMarket, Urban Outfitters is definitely NO stranger to expanding its vision (sans passport). But now the mass retailer is going even more global with a sustainable spin to its already well-stocked selection of worldly goods. UO has teamed up with Della, a Los Angeles-based brand that sells wildly cool clothing and accessories handcrafted in Ghana. According to Refinery 29, the label's roomy jackets, track shorts, and accessories like iPad cases are produced by local women, all of whom receive background training and education from the company. Besides being actually, you know, cute, these colorful printed pieces are 100% vegan and totally sustainable. Oh, and we mention everything's priced under $69?!

Just face it—procrastination got the best of you. Whether you've been too busy planning the school dance, studying up for your exams, or playing in a punk rock band, you've waited too long to pick out a new dress for prom and—gasp—it's mere hours away! Don't freak out just yet—if you have an LBD (little black dress, obvi) and a couple hours before the mall closes, you're good to go. We found ways to dress up even the most standard black frock for the big dance while still staying true to your personal style. We used a classic box-pleated frock from Forever 21 ($25) as a guide, so check out how we transformed it from traditional to prom-ready below!

For the girl that's more focused on getting As than A-lines, we found the PERFECT accessories to show off your intelligent and fashion-savvy side. First off, we needed something to snazz up this ensemble in a snap, so we opted for a super cute gold scalloped collar necklace ($7) that's glam but not too over-the-top. Then, to show off your affinity for literature, we thought this green and gold novel clutch with a beautiful satin interior ($25) was pretty on-point paired with Swarovski crystal-embellished frames ($300). PERF.

Uniqlo shows off its print game on the runway and in its new Uniqlo collab.

Matching is SO overrated. At least that's the case with Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty, the founders of New York label Suno. Since its inception back in 2008, the brand has won a well-deserved cult following for its mishmash of fabrics, colors, and exotic patterns, all of which are sourced everywhere from Kenya to Peru to its home base in Manhattan. It's easy to swoon over the eye-popping goods at Fashion Week and on stars like Solange, but it's decidedly tougher to work up the spare change to snag a Suno original for our own personal wardrobes. Until now, that is, because Max and Erin are the latest additions to Uniqlo's Designer Invitation Project and are officially joining forces with the mega-retailer on a capsule of pattern-perfect designs. Filled with floral motifs and stripes that take cues from "Japanese Americana" (as well as their own runway pieces, as evidenced above), the collection is a total prints PARTY, and everyone's closet is invited. So who's in!?

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
