Soul-Angel Solange (Chunky Braids)

Chunky braids is the style trending for African-Caribbean females this year. Forget the Rihanna  red hair! That style is characterless!

A simple bun is also in style for this summer

Solange Knowles can be seen as such a beautiful fashion icon! Although she may be wearing the orange and purple to colour block, I must say that she pulled it off really well. Solange is one of the inspirational black women who made me realise how beautiful natural hair is. (For those who do not know my hair used to be relaxed but I stopped the perms and went natural) Her natural hair is hidden under her beautiful chunky braids.

Sometimes I Wish I Could Act Like A Boy...

Looking at the Topshop autumn/winter 2011 collection, the style that stood out to me and got me excited the most was the "Mod Chic" one. It is back again! The boyish Dandy look. A popular movement in fashion during the 18th and 19th century. Which was also refurbished 50's and 60's where bands like The Sex Pistols and The Kinks contributed really well to the trend. Some of our parents had fun with this trend but now it's our turn to try it out!
