Solange Franklin’s style is the good kind of aspirational. She puts things together in a way that’s both surprising and approachable; you’ll love it on her but also want to put it on yourself. It’s a skill well-earned! She’s a freelance stylist and the Fashion Editor-at-Large for Paper Magazine. She’s been in the industry for a while, and worked alongside the likes of Giovanna Battaglia, Patrick Demarchelier and Peter Lindbergh. You can see her depth of experience in the way she styles herself. Every day she looks…kind of perfect?
Solange’s style isn’t one-note — one day she’s in plaid and safety pins, another she’s in a DVF wrap dress — but it also doesn’t feel the least bit unfocused. It’s strung together with a palpable sense of self-assuredness. She really seems to know herself. I might even argue her blanket confidence is the coolest part of her style.
