Solange Knowles

Graphic and graceful: Solange Knowles

Her signature mix of lively prints, vivid colours and stylish separates have made her a style star on the horizon, and here Solange mixes high and low for an off-duty look that is totally on-trend.

  1. The sexiest skirts in your wardrobe need not be consigned to partywear alone. Try mixing a casual tee with something short and shiny, like Solange’s taupe leather mini, to bring a glam edge to daywear staples.

  2. Up your fashion cred instantly with some all-out accessories. Dramatic cat-eye sunglasses always do the trick – retro in flavour, they also exude fun, fabulousness and ferocious style.

  3. Snap! Matching your skirt to your shoes is one sure-fire way to elongate those legs, as evidenced by Solange’s super-flattering miniskirt and strappy stilettoes combination. 

  4. Bust out the colour wheel – contrasting colours are all the rage. Not only do they inject a little wit into any look, they literally become more eye-popping – like this green tote bag and red top. 

  5. When mixing pieces that are both laidback and dressy, it’s important not to go too far in one direction. Try tucking in your casual tee to keep it safely on the side of chic rather than scruffy.
