Solange Knowles should have considered titling her debut album Style Star. Her daily ensembles continue to wow as her career progresses. When she served as the guest blogger of Vogue.com's "Today I am Wearing" feature back in February, we didn't miss a post.
Here, the songstress sports an ensemble that showcases her quirky-cool style. Her look may be casual, combining shorts with a simple, sleeveless shift top, but it is far from low-key. The bold color of the shorts catches our attention immediately, but it is the top's intricate, geometric print that keeps it. Solange wisely recognized that only heavy-duty accessories would pop against an already busy outfit. A chunky necklace and strappy gold sandals make a strong statement, where other pieces may have been lost in the shuffle.
Her natural hairstyle and old-fashioned camera complete the ensemble while providing a glimpse of the artist's creative side.
It may seem counterintuitive to add a bold necklace to an already busy ensemble, but Solange carries it off perfectly. One or two fun details, like the turquoise stones in Solange's collar, or the orange tassel that pops on this piece, add interest without overwhelming the outfit.
