She's got style: Solange Knowles

source
For some, Solange Knowles is just Beyonce's little sister but she's fierce and fabulous and a star in her own right. She has a daring, fashion forward and inspiring look. As with most non-conformists, she might be seen as an enfant terrible who refuses to be fazed by her older sister’s fame. 

She has been the musical act and DJ du jour at a host of exclusive designer events, appeared in ads for Armani Jean Rimmel and L’Oreal cosmetics; blogs for UK Vogue and signed with Next Model Management this past January. 

It's her ability to meld traditional basics in highlighter colors, sporty knits and tribal prints with a refreshingly understated appeal that has drawn attention from the fashion elite. A recent NY Times style and fashion article stated that Solange "has earned attention for mixing designer labels with vintage pieces and incorporates bright colors (especially yellow and purple) that routinely inspire “hot or not” polls on style blogs." We say hot.

For all these reasons and more is why we also say, she's got style!

  5. I like this post. I think she is an oversight from Beyonce. She has better style than B (in my opinion anyway).

    Loving your blog, gonna follow. Hope you'll follow back.

  6. Ummmm HOT!!! Solange is so beyond fabulous it's ridiculous. She's absolutely GORGEOUS (I love her hair) and her style is incredible. I would probably faint if I got a peak into her closet. I'm a huge fan of mixing vintage pieces with new, designer trends. And she does it so flawlessly.

    Her sis may be a music icon, but Solange is making herself into a style icon. :)
