Solange Knowles Loves…Yellow

Following Solange Knowles’ yellow Marni dress which she wore to the CFDA Fashion Awards we noticed something. Solange loves to wear yellow on the red carpet.

It takes a brave woman to wear head-to-toe yellow, and Solange is just that woman.

The DJ knows how to stand out in a crowd, infusing the vibrant colour into her signature style.

Solange has been lighting up the red carpet with her bright yellow sartorial choices, whether it’s a perfectly tailored blazer or a dramatic peplum gown.

The bright colour perfectly offsets the star’s gorgeous features, making her almond eyes pop and smooth skin glow.

To make yellow as versatile as basic black, takes cues from the fashion-forward DJ by incorporating the sunny hue with your favourite wardrobe staples.

If you’re not quite ready to don a floor-length gown quite yet, steal a look from Solange and try a tailored blazer or a summery cocktail dress.

Giving any outfit a fun pop of colour, Solange always manages to also incorporate her signature colour with some bright accessories.

Try a chic belt to offset a colour-blocked ensemble, or add brilliant pumps to an otherwise conservative outfit.

    I don’t like the both looks in the middle . But, I’m in lust for the peplum gown in the right .

    And yellow seems to love her too. It works so good against her beautiful skin.

    I’m so impressed with the variety of looks, not one of them boring. And yellow is not easy, especially h2t (hello Big Bird). Solange has really stepped up her game. Great post.

    What i loved most is the fact that she doesn´t repeat a style, she keeps people guessing, since she doesn´t play it safe. It took her some time to find the right balance, but again, she was always promising in my eyes.
    I think the time she ditched the extensions for good & rocked the supa duppa short hair do was her turning point.
    She is a true fashionista, the yellow dress still gives me goosebumps! truly memorable moment.

      Well said. I totally agree.

      This is exactly whats in my mind :)

      Go Solange !

      I prefer the hair huge. She has the attitude to carry it off.

    I love that she wears yellow, it looks so gorgeous on her! My favourite look is her Met Gala look.

  8. Fola June 8, 2012 at 14:27 #

    I was going to do a blog post about her and yellow. It looks so good against her skin so I don’t blame her!

  9. Odette June 8, 2012 at 14:32 #

    Thanks for this post FC because when you put it all together like this, you see that she really IS stylish.

    It’s like ‘wow, I really DO love her outfits not just that one over there and that one over there’ you know?

    I can always count on her for bringing something fresh on the RC. Glad she is not afraid of wearing bright colors!

    We are becoming Solange fans!!!
    I love her hair now. (HATED the mega-fro, though I could overlook it when she otherwise looked sharp.)

  12. Shaina June 8, 2012 at 16:19 #

    I love, love, love watching her on the red carpet. It’s always something new and interesting with her. This girl never does boring!

  13. Mol June 8, 2012 at 16:31 #

    How great to see all these looks together – Solange really does have it going on, I look forward to all her appearances, she’s got a good eye.

  14. Molly June 8, 2012 at 16:45 #

    Obsessed with Solange now. Her style has truly grown and become more refined over the years but in particular this year. I find myself looking up her looks and trying to remake them :) She truly is a style star and buddinG fashion icon. I want to know who is behind her looks? Kudos to whoever finds out who her stylist is i have tried with no luck. Fashion’s best kept secret. @RCFA HELP

      I have no idea unfortunately.

      The last time I spoke to her assistant in New York, she told me Solange dresses herself

      • Simon June 8, 2012 at 20:19 #

        I remember reading interview from Solange, saying she is buying a lot online, even more now that she can buy something on net-a-porter and having it 4hours later ! So i guess she doesn’t have a stylist. And that wouldn’t suprised me !

        • Camille June 9, 2012 at 03:25 #

          She has great taste but she definitely has a stylist!

  15. Jones19 June 8, 2012 at 16:51 #

    I’m an avid yellow lover too but I find it so hard to get a good cocktail dress in yellow. I have plenty of accessories and a jersey fabric type of everyday dress in yellow but no luck finding a decent cocktail one.

  16. cartouche June 8, 2012 at 17:21 #

    she is my style inspiration! she always looks so stylish and definitely not boring. she stands out among the crowd

  17. EmmaWoodhouse June 8, 2012 at 19:50 #

    Not a fan of her style but she looks good in yellow. Her Met Gala look was chic!

  18. justme June 8, 2012 at 19:52 #

    She loves yellow and yellow loves her back. It looks stunning against her skin.
    I’ve become a big fan of Solange’s style. She’s not afraid of colours and I can appreciate that.

  19. Dhppy June 9, 2012 at 00:37 #

    Good Heaven’s this woman can dress! There’s not a dud in that lineup.

  20. Amy June 9, 2012 at 00:39 #

    She’s one of my current style crushes. She never disappoints and it’s always nice to see someone who isn’t afraid of bold colors, prints and unusual shapes. I love her
