Taking it back.
Solange seems determined to bring back Patra/”Poetic Justice” style boxed braids in 2011!¬† She was spotted, again,¬†in her lastest hairdo while hitting the ones and twos at a Macy’s pop-up store launch party for their contemporary brand Bar III.
I can’t say that I’m inspired to pull out the Yaki and sit for hours to get singles like I did in the early ’90s, but I have to give it up¬†to Solange for fearlessly rocking¬†different hairstyles over the past year especially at a time where so many people have had so much to say about how Black women wear our hair (I still can’t get over Method Man’s anti-natural hair comments!).¬†Whether she’s wearing her hair shaved, in a curly Afro, or yes, even in these waist length braids Solange wears her style with a beautiful confidence.
Her outfit choices are also bold and I’m actually really feeling the outfit she wore this night.¬†¬†The¬†orange shirt with blue pastel silk pants and cream shoes¬†is a fun color combination¬†that would be perfect for spring. With the color block purse this outfit has a¬†retro feel, but¬†leave it to Solo to add a funky twist with a leopard print head scarf.
What’s your take on Solange’s look?
