Sister Style: Beyoncé and Solange Knowles Sport the Same Coat

It looks as though Beyonce and Solange Knowles share more than their genetic DNA or their musical talent. Evidently, they also share the same closet.

Earlier this fashion month, Beyonce took her front row seat at the adidas Originals x Kanye West Yeezy show during New York Fashion Week in bejeweled zipper-front Harbison separates that she topped with a contemporary mosaic color-block overcoat, also by Harbison. She accessorized with round sunnies, a fluffy oversize color-block clutch, and Alaia sandals.

Less than a month later, Solange hit the Paris Fashion Week circuit and stopped by the Vivienne Westwood and Andrew Gn shows in the same coat. But instead of draping it over her shoulder like big sis Beyonce, she kept it closed and styled the look with a box clutch and cool geometric color-block sandals.

Even though their personal styles have been vastly different in the past, this incident just goes to show how similar they truly are. So, is this a classic case of sister-to-sister sixth sense? We think so!

Solange Knowles’ Summer Wardrobe Staple? Wearable Produce!

Few things say “summer” like a bevy of tropical fruit—and we’re not just talking about it from an edible perspective. When it comes to warm-weather dressing, brighter is always better, and prints reign supreme over solids. So when the two sartorially combine in the form of wearable produce, it’s pretty much a fashion ace. And few people demonstrate the wearability of fruit prints with more ease than Solange Knowles. The singer and former Destiny’s Child member has been spotted on more than one occasion sporting the tasty trend—most recently at Q&Q’s U.S. launch event at Open House Gallery (above, right), where she seamlessly paired two Christopher Kane separates with a crystal-crusted lemon wedge handbag by Kate Spade. “I don’t know what my obsession is with fruits this season,” Knowles told InStyle.com of her statement-making accessory. “Yellow is my favorite color to wear. If it was a banana, I’d be wearing it.”

But Knowles doesn’t limit herself to the sunny hue, of course. A champion of mixed prints, she’s paired nearly every color of the rainbow in her bold, risk-taking ensembles. Her go-to trend this year, as last (above, left at Coachella 2013), promises to be a veritable fruit cocktail, harking back to 2011, when Prada and Stella McCartney both showed bold citrusy prints in their spring collections. The trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon: “Melody Ehsani made some really adorable watermelon earrings that I just got,” Knowles said. “I also just got a pineapple ring, and I saw this other lemon dress at Opening Ceremony. My mom [Tina] was actually with me when I saw it and said, ‘If you buy one more thing with the fruit, this is just going to be embarrassing for you.’” Our verdict? Keep the fruit coming.
