Style it like Solange

Solange made headlines again this week, but this time for all the right reasons. “Of course sometimes shit go down when it’s a billion dollars on an elevator” and whatever your opinion on what went down is, you can’t deny that she really did look a billion dollars at her New Orleans wedding.

Solange cycled her way to the venue in none other than a Stéphane Rolland jumpsuit before switching into a Humberto Leon for Kenzo gown for the ceremony. While her 1970s outfit choices were very on trend, she went against the trend when it came to guest attire as her wedding party all wore various shades of white. Despite this she still stood out as the star of show, even Sasha Fierce looked tame in comparison opting for a mid length Torn by Ronny Kobo Maggie Lasso diamonds dress.

Evoking Diana Ross, Solange looked regal as she swapped the traditional Bride’s veil for a cape. Engaged, single or happily married everyone should have a fling with Solange’s seventies style.

Bringing Sexy Back

Last season it was all about the shoulders, this S/S it’s all about the back.

I’m sure my good friend Rosie will agree, there’s something incredibly sexy yet understated about showing off a bit of back. Zara are also championing this idea as the bulk of their new Trf collection is full of seductively low cut backs in V’s, square’s and scoops.
