style crush: Solange

Long story short: I'm back from France and with me I've brought a stack of French magazines (including my much loved Jalouse) and a new style crush. Enter Solange...

I have to admit, whilst the fashion world has been in love with her for a while, I remained unconvinced. I've always loved her ever-so-slightly-famous sister Beyoncé (more for her music and stage presence than her outfits...), and never thought much of Solange, in terms of dressing or talent or otherwise.

I'll eat my words now. My love for her has kind of crept up on me, but this editorial completely sealed the deal, so-to-speak. Her print mixing is amazing, and a complete inspiration to the new approach I'm trying to take towards dressing (more colour and prints, less black). She has Beyoncé's beauty, but with an edginess and quiet confidence that I would love to emulate. So, Solange, je t'aime!

Okay, I have to admit, I'd never really thought anything much about Solange's style, it's never been something I particularly noticed, but after looking at this editorial, I'm definitely a convert, her style's sooo amazing, I can't believe I'd never noticed it before! Loving the splashes of colour that're incorporated with her prints, such a different look, I can see why it's something you'd aspire to, and I'm definitely with you on that one! xx
