Solange's Signature Color (Almost) Rhymes With Her Name
If there's one color that gets a bad rap, it's orange. Bright, obnoxious, always-associated-with-Halloween orange. It's pretty much the opposite of the fashionable favorites — black, gray, and more black — and more often than not considered completely unwearable. That is, of course, unless you're Solange Knowles.
The singer knows a thing or two about pulling off the bright hue: she's even been spotted expertly rocking it from head to toe during New York Fashion Week. And considering her name is the only thing that (kinda) rhymes with the color — Sol-ange, or-ange — we're chalking this perfect pairing up to fate. Read on for all the ways this star makes orange look completely chic, and consider embracing this daring color.
