Solange Knowles In Etro – Out In Dublin

Solange Knowles In Etro - Out In Dublin

Birthday girl Solange Knowles turned 27 in Dublin, Ireland yesterday, where she blew out the candles in high style.

Naturally, our reigning pretty-girl of prints took the opportunity to pattern the celebration with an Etro Spring 2013 blazer and shirt, daintily painted in Japanese-inspired blue flora and fauna.

Three thick rows of black, green and orange stripes boldly cut through the sleeves and bottom of the jacket, interrupting the lighter blooms.

Solange further raised the volume with a cropped pair of slick black track pants from Etro’s Fall 2013 collection. My birthday wish for her would have been that she wore the runway look in its entirety with the matching palazzo pants. She could have carried off the print explosion with aplomb.

We are accustomed to the songstress rocking a fab ‘fro, but she flaunted her new thigh-dusting rows of braids for her b-day.

Funky round shades and Pierre Hardy’s Trico-Dot pumps with orange ankle straps completed the look.

    Don’t like the super long hair. I like her pants and blazer.

    Like the shoes and the jacket, rest of the look DISLIKE it!! Specially her hair, I used to love her fro, and I hate her decision to go on braids (And the length is seriously uncool 🙁 )

    Only like the shoes

    I love the jacket on its own, but with the patterned blouse and those pants there is far too much going on. Her hair is seriously off. Those braids are too long. Chop them off halfway and they would look great.

    ITA, would have loved to see the H2T runway look on her. As it is, I only like half of this look–No to the shoes, pants, and the bottom half of her hair length.

    I agree with everyone: not feeling the pants. The rest is nice though not my style.

    The pants are quite ugly and harsh, and the matching print pants are too loose and pajamary, would’ve preferred sleeker narrower pants in a complementary colour.

    As Beyonce’s little sister I am fairly sure she’s not 35. Nice outfit though.
