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.
