Style Watch – Solange Knowles

solange-21

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).

New York Fashion Week Street Style Favourites

shoes

On a productivity scale of one to ten, ours has been at all time low this week due to the – several hundred – Instagram feeds, stories,  Snapchats, tweets (seriously, please don’t let anyone create anymore social media outlets we need to be on, I’m exhausted) we are following from some of the most influential and stylish people in fashion attending this week’s New York Fashion Week. It is a smorgasbord of amazing street style fashion and even more amazing shows and presentations – I’m looking at you JCrew and Dolpozo. The latter, a genius.

For the first time we get to feel like we are there with the frow bloggers and editors by watching – often seconds later – what they have just seen on the catwalk. It’s a thrill, and will do me until I finally blag my way into NYFW! You read it here, I will. #bucketlist

Here is a roundup of some of WEARIT/dublin’s favourite street style looks to so far.
