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).

Style Watch – Chloë Sevigny

chloe-sevigny-book-51

Lately, with the crisp, cold weather and sunny blue skies – in Dublin lads, sorry – while strolling the city streets I am reminded of crisp autumn days in New York City. The NYC cold will literally bite your cheeks, but that blue sky and beaming sun totally make up for it, its easy to stay positive and stylish when it’s not lashing down rain.

In my New York state of mind – remembering Mr. Big’s cringe love affair with the movie star – I am channeling one of my favourite Manhattan ladies, Chloe Sevigny. Quirky, cool, effortless. She doesn’t follow trends religiously, and beats to her own – CBGB style – drum. Add those killer pins, a love of white outfits, and you have a winning combo.
