The WEAR IT/dublin soundtrack over the last few weeks has been the eagerly anticipated album by the other – much cooler, I still love you Bea – Knowles sister, Solange. Her style credentials over the last few years – that wedding! – have impressed anyone with a fashion pulse. And now, her music is doing the same. With lyrics and spoken word clearly showing her feelings towards America and its treatment of African Americans, A Seat At The Table still manages to be a extremely relaxing and beautiful album, even with politically charged words. With a smidgen of Erykah Badu thrown in – there will always be comparisons – we love it, and while listening to it on repeat, it has reminded us of how much we adore her style too. Always brave, a lover of yellow – yes! – unusual, geometric shapes, print clashing, bold colours and patterns from her African roots, she knows how to dress to make a statement yet remain true to herself and her body shape. We could have posted five hundred pictures, but that would be a little excessive (stalkerish).

Sun, oh how we have missed you! We finally have our pins out, and with that in mind here are some star summer buys – summer staples if you will – that you should be hunting down this week.
The summer sales have started too (does that rhym?!), so you may just get very lucky!
The breton top never goes out of fashion. One should always have a little number in ones wardrobe for an instant outfit update. Wear with jeans, or with floral prints for a cool clashing situation.
Get the look here.
Suede – and the 70’s – are having a moment. The easiest, and most popular way to wear it right now seems to be the mini skirt, buttoned up the front. Check out Topshop or any of the high street stores for the best.

The Neck Tie:
Yes, its back. Thanks to Gucci’s new creative director, Alessandro Michele. He has launched a string – get it?! – of dresses and blouses donning both skinny and fat, black and red, neck ties. Wear with a blouse, or try a pussy bow blouse to get the look. They will be hitting the highstreet stores in July.

Co-ords are the new dress. I have no idea if they are, but they are everywhere and look pretty dam cute. Mostly sold as a shorts/top combo, you can get them in a skirt/top or trouser/top combo too, for the more modest lady. Its all gone matchy matchy. Here is one of our favs.
