Who: Solange Knowles
Where: At the ‘See What Unfolds’ live event held at the Trident stand in New York
Wearing: A bright, neon and digital-print floral Roberto Cavalli silk blazer from the spring/summer 2012 collection, teamed with black separates, a neon bright pink CC Skye Niki clutch and transparent sandals
Verdict: Want to know how to work bright and prints then take notes from Solange who looks amazing in this statement blazer from Roberto Cavalli’s spring/summer 2012 collection. You may recognise this blazer as a lot of celebrities have sported similar styles, with both Cassie and Rita Ora spotted in the sequined version, and Naomi Watts was seen in the black version with a gold-beaded trim, this blazer is the ultimate celebrity cover-up.
What I love about this look is that Solange lets the digital print do the talking by pairing it with black separates and transparent heels. But she isn’t afraid to add in another dose of colour with her super bright nearly neon pink clutch, which I think looks great against this bold statement blazer, and just proves that colour can work together if the rest is left simple. I also love that she matched her lips to her clutch as well – nice touch.
I really do love this look on Solange – do you think will you be rocking a vibrant floral blazer this summer?
