The Stylish: Solange Knowles


We've been asked: "Who's Your Muse?" Whose style inspires us? Who do we try to emulate? Whose closet would we love to raid? For me, this one was easy. While there are many women, in my life, in the press, the famous and the infamous, whose style is wonderful - but in the past year, one woman's style has stood out to me to be truly original and filled with joy: Solange Knowles.







It would be easy to be lost in the shadow if your sister happened to be the most famous pop singer in the world. But while Beyonce opts for glam, I much prefer Solange's earthy, tribal inspired, print-mixing, colour-blocking, bohemian, utterly fearless and drop dead sexy style.

I even admire her hair. With so much pressure of African American women to straighten their hair, or to wear weaves, I respect her for wearing her gorgeous hair in its natural lovely state and texture.
So, whose style inspires you?

  4. Is that Beyonce's sister? I think Beyonce is prettier, but Solange dares to wear short and curly hair, which I admire :)

    Nice blog :)
