Who says dresses are the only acceptable attire for after five events? If Solange Knowles’ recent fashion choices are any indication, suits are a more than fashionable alternative. The singer, DJ, and sometimes actor donned two suited looks recently, and we think she might be on to something.
Solange’s first menswear inspired ensemble was a look from the Esteban Cortazar Resort 2013 collection, worn to a fundraiser for President Obama, that was hosted by big sis Beyoncé and brother-in-law Jay Z.
Solange’s ivory, duchess silk blazer ($1,435) featured a cape back, that only those with the strongest of fashion fortitudes could successfully pull off. The style forward blazer was paired with a matching mini skirt ($680), and accessorized with a Kayu ‘Audrey’ shell purse ($569), and Tom Ford heels.
Solange’s second suited look was a matching cotton candy pink blazer and shorts set from Twenty8Twelve. Her blazer ($435) featured origami folding across the front, and a high, round neckline. The matching high-waist shorts ($245) were added, and Solange completed her look with a black and white Preen top.
Black and white continued to be a common theme with her look, as Solange wore a black and white pair of Nicholas Kirkwood slingback heels ($965). Her Charlotte Olympia ‘London 2012 Pandora’ perspex clutch ($965) added a bit of whimsy to her ensemble.
