You know maybe I’d never say it out loud if you asked me, but yes I think Solange Knowles is the better dressed sister.
Don’t get me wrong I am a huge Beyonce fan. Anybody who knows me can contest to that fact and the seven times I’ve been to see her perform in concert. But she’s only just started to get to grips with her own style and look, and even then she rarely veers away from Topshop coordinates…
Solange on the other hand is so unique, original, fresh, bright and colourful. She likes to rock her natural hair which really makes her a good role model for black and mixed race women who may not be so confident about wearing their natural afro curls (i.e Me). And that’s something I’ve always found jarring about Beyonce, that she insists on dying her hair an unnatural blonde. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve longed for blonde white hair when I should have been looking to Solange for my hairspiration.
What I love about Solange is her absolute undying love for colour. Her utmost favourite colour at a guess would be yellow. Which she looks divine in, but most recently she’s taken to another citrus shade – orange.
Her performance at the first weekend of Coachella was mostly talked about because of the surprise (and pretty awesome) appearance of her ridiculously famous sister. But what really caught my eye was that head to toe orange look, which inspired my latest list for Shopcade.
