Within the last three years, we’ve seen the emergence of the real Solange Knowles. We were energized when the first group of pictures surfaced of her new hair style. She shockingly cut off her hair and became a part of the growing Team Natural sorority! I say ‘shockingly’ because there aren’t many African American celebrities who would openly allow the world to experience their hair transition. Although the hair was enough to get people excited and interested, Solange would also give us something much more… her fashion identity. We started to see her as more than just Beyonce’s little sister and started to see a woman who stood confidently in her own spotlight.
Solange’s style slowly and refreshingly evolved into a eclectic mix of chic patterns, cultures, and eras. She not only graced the cover of numerous elite magazines and walked a couple of designer runways, but she also became the face of a new breed. The fearless, fashion risk takers, the naturalistas, the new… IT GIRLS. Solange Knowles reminds us to step outside the norm and creating our own little path to style or what we deem as success. Always remembering to be bold enough to be you without any apologies.
