No one rocks prints like Solange Knowles and the singer/DJ/model/bff-in-our-head proved that point once again this week in a set of eye-catching looks only she could pull off.
Rocking a dress that looks like it was made from 70s couch fabric and jazzed up with shiny paillette sequins should be left to those with an extraordinary level of swagger. Solange stepped out in said dress, aka Marni's Spring 2013 floral gabardine frock, on Tuesday night to perform at the Glamour Live Show in Milan. Although the full skirt and oversized, draped bodice did nothing for her fab figure, we must admit that the 27-year-old star looked great.
And as if the ensemble wasn't bold enough, Solange added a pair of Marni polka dot wedges to the mix. Now she's just showing off!
Solange swapped the retro pattern for a more modern Mary Katrantzou design on Wednesday night in Switzerland during her performance to fete Mikalene Thomas' 'Better Days' art installation. The "Losing You" singer teamed the multi-print dress with a pair of black-and-white polka dot sandals (note to self: buy a pair of polka dot shoes).
There's definitely a lot going on with this look, but Solange recently told InStyle UK that beyond her penchant for bold apparel she makes a conscience effort to keep the rest of her look simple. In this case, it's her well manicured eyebrows, minimal makeup and polished Marley Twist updo balancing things out.
Add those looks to her endless list of print-tastic moments--that jaw-dropping Just Cavalli suit, those cloud-adorned pants and her "Jimmy Fallon" ensemble, to name a few--and we've pled our case and move to deem Solange the High Priestess of Prints! Now please excuse us as we attempt to recreate her pattern mixing magic.
