Solange Knowles has always been pretty high up in our style ranks, but Beyoncé’s baby sis made her commitment to fashion pretty clear back at last season’s Paris Fashion Week when she conquered an impressive quest of FOUR outfit changes in just one day!
So when Ms Knowles stepped out to host Veuve Clicquot’s exclusive Clicquot RICH launch at the Hotel Café Royal last night, we expected nothing less than the best from her choice of ensemble – and we weren’t left disappointed.
Solange opted for an elegant off-white gown from Marios Schwab’s AW14 collection, featuring a dramatic cape style sleeve and figure-hugging shape. To add a little extra va va voom, this American beauty paired her head-turning frock with a matching pair of strappy tassel heels which we also spotted her rocking in a bright yellow during her infamous Fashion Week outfit exhibition. Cue fringing trend frenzy.
Wearing her hair in a much more toned down style than her usual mega curls and opting for a classic frock, Solange looked strikingly different to her often seriously OTT style.
We are used to seeing Ms Knowles take style risks – like this amazing yellow fluffy number she was spotted in last month and her jaw-dropping Giles frock at the Met Ball. Although we love a risqué Solange look, it’s also great to see her mixing her style up with some more classic looks.
If, like us, you fancy yourself a slice of Solange style, then worry not, we’ve found the perfect high street replica of Marios Schwab’s creation for a fraction of the price.
First up, this gorge Oh My Love kimono sleeve dress hones in on the exaggerated cape detailing found on Solange’s own, whilst the black belt ups the style ante even further.
Next, the short sleeves on Missguided’s plunging cape shoulder dress mean that this cute number might be a little more suitable as the days start to warm up. And at just £28, it’s an absolute steal.
Happy shopping guys!
