Solange Knowles is a guru when it comes to wearing brights, so we're looking to the multifaceted star for pointers on wearing one of the season's trickiest trends: the printed blazer. When wearing such a statement piece up top, it's important to keep the rest of your outfit simple. At the See What Unfolds event in NYC last night, Solange smartly tempered her standout Roberto Cavalli blazer with black separates, cute gold earrings, and clear-strap sandals, while a bright pink clutch added just the right amount of flourish to her party ensemble. Want to get the same look? Just read our quick styling tips, then shop for your own cool printed blazer in the widget below.
- Before buying your own printed blazer, make sure the silhouette is cut close (not tight) to your body. Prints can sometimes add bulk to your shape, so a tailored fit is essential to getting this look right.
- Solids look best paired with this look, but if you're looking to go the extra fashion mile, experiment with a complementary patterned top for a quirky, mixed-print ensemble.
- Accessorize lightly. We love how Solange gave her outfit an extra pop with her hot pink clutch, but kept her sandals and jewels to a minimum.
