Unless you call the underside of a rock home or your internet was out all weekend, you’ve probably seen the jaw-droppingly gorgeous shots from Solange Knowles’ New Orleans wedding to music video-director Alan Ferguson. And it wasn’t just the badass wedding photo that made us green with envy, it was also the gorgeous bride’s unconventional approach to every detail of the festivities. Yes, the bride wore white (she stunned in a dress with a cape, mind you), as did all the guests and the entire Carter clan (yes, even Jay-Z donned a white tux). The bride—decked in a to-die-for cream jumpsuit—arrived to the ceremony with her groom on matching vintage bikes. Once the reception was in full swing, there was even a dance off. No surprise there. Here, 3 majorly awesome ways Solange’s wedding broke the rules (in the best way we’ve ever seen), and how to incorporate her boundary-pushing style into your everyday look.
Happily Ever After, Right This Way
Jumpsuit As Pre-Ceremony Look
Emilia Wickstead, $1810
It's tough to ride a bike in a dress. To make her arrival a stylish statement, Solange opted for a crisp white jumpsuit. Pair yours with sleek pumps and a festive clutch, and get ready to field a slew of compliments at holiday cocktail parties. (Words to the wise: Steer clear of red wine for the night. Trust.)
Bold Cuff As Bridal Jewelry
K/LLER Collection, $475
Delicate pearls and diamonds are what come to mind when thinking of wedding jewelry. But when you're Solange, you forgo convention and adorn your wrists with killer gold cuffs. Naturally. Best part? They also look amazing paired with jeans and a tee.
Cape Gown As Wedding Dress
There's no other way to say it: Solange's Humberto Leon for Kenzo gown was pure perfection. We suggest trying out the dramatic silhouette for yourself this festive season by way of a shorter hemline and darker hue.
