Fasyon of the day - Solange Knowles

I've been reading my fill of the Met Gala red carpet, which was, despite the theme Punk Rock: Chaos to Couture -- oddly boring (if you want to dive in, check out Tom and Lorenzo and Go Fug Yourself's posts, and NY Mag for just pictures). Anyway, with both last year and this one, Solange Knowles outshone her flashier sister Beyonce by being low key -- by not trying too hard.

Look how comfy and chic she looks compared with her sis (2012 and 2013 Met Gala looks):

It can come down to preference and personality, overall, but I much prefer cool and funky than outrageous and overworked.

Below, some of my favorite Solange looks (pics from Tom and Lorenzo):
She knocks it out of the park with these striking, but simple, Diana Ross-at-her-best formal gowns, but I equally love her casual outfits:

 PhD in mixing prints!
 Looking fresh and effortless at Coachella.

Working the dots again and a mod, '60s silhouette
 It takes fashion confidence but a sense of restraint too (see the lack of jewelry, understated makeup and au naturel Afro) to make wild prints like this work.

My favorite has got to be the one with the mixed polka dots. So cool yet so fun! 

What about you? Which one do you like best?
