Solange's Style

Good genes and savvy style run in the Knowles family. Beyonce is one of my style icons and her mother, Tina collaborates with her for the popular House of Dereon fashion line. Younger sister, Solange, however, flies slightly under the radar, but her style is anything but ordinary.

Beyonce is known for a sleeker hairstyle, but Solange likes to let it all loose with big, natural hair. Her makeup is typically kept simpler with lighter, but bright accents on the lips and eyes and gorgeous skin as the base. She chooses the right colors to complement her skin, and saves the bolder colors for her wardrobe.

She mixes trendy patterns and must have basics for a downtown flair to her uptown jacket and shorts combo. By having one solid, black piece, it helps pull a look together and keeps even bright, bubblegum pink accessories from looking out of place. She helps to elongate her legs with her open-toed sandals, and lets the colorful, standout florals of her jacket take center stage.

In her second technicolor look, she chooses a combination mixing a deep, regal purple with shiny, red pants. Keeping with a similar satin fabric for both her jacket and pants makes the pieces look like part of the same suit versus muddling the look with heavier fabrics. The sheer blouse is the perfect choice for such a bold look because it adds a bit of sexy allure to her fashion-forward style.

Finally, for the red carpet Solange sticks with what looks good on her and that’s unexpected pops of color. The canary yellow peplum gown is perfect for her body shape, skin tone and is event appropriate. She does not drown the look by over-accessorizing, rather she carries an elaborate, but well-matched metallic clutch. Her style is original, funky, and fun. This is a celeb closet that I'd like to raid.

Are you a fan of Solange's style?
