Solange Knowles shares her style
It’s her ability to meld traditional basics in highlighter colors with sporty knits and tribal prints, and her refreshingly understated appeal that have drawn attention from the fashion set. Knowles pairs bold prints from Marni and Opening Ceremony with sharply tailored solid items from Alexander Wang and J. Crew for a bold but balanced look that's inspired designers like Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis from Suno, for whom she served as muse during a Vogue/CFDA event last year.
And unlike many of today’s popular celebrities, Knowles does not use a stylist except for a handful of red carpet events. Instead, she exhibits her own knack for styling and expression in a way that's always eye-catching and unexpected.
