No longer in her older sister’s shadow, Solange Knowles took the fashion world by storm in 2012.

Even American Vogue noted her sartorial style choices as she was firmly placed on their best dressed list for 2012, joining the likes of Emma Stone, Rooney Mara, Zoe Saldana and LeeLee Sobieski.

We loved her for her ‘stepping outside the box’ style choices, which ranged from multiple prints, African-inspired pieces, luxe gowns, colour-blocking, her love for all things yellow and of course her ‘fro.

She also introduced us to many underground designers such as Esteban Cortazar, Boxing Kitten, Rubin Singer, Flaminia Saccucci and Maki Oh which not only cemented her trend setting status, but also gave a much needed spotlight to these talented up-and-coming designers.

The one thing we could predict when it came to Solange’s style, is that she would never be predictable.
