Who Wore A Yellow Suit Best? Arizona Muse on Paul & Joe’s Spring 2012 Runway in Paris or Solange Knowles in New York City

Until now, suiting has really always been a look that I never wanted to wear. It always seemed very boring and confined: two words no one would want to use to describe their personal style. As I have grown and had to acquire some professional pieces for my career, as well as embracing the amazing ways some of my favorite designers have taken on the menswear-inspired trend, I have learned to love suiting and the looks are made even more fun in punchy prints or soft shades.

While taking in Paul & Joe’s Spring 2012 looks and making my assessment (review to come shortly), I could not help but be drawn to a yellow suit worn on the runway by Arizona Muse. Yes, it is a little Miami Vice/1980’s, but I loved it. It reminded me of a style maven who dared to wear a yellow suit earlier this year: Solange Knowles. At the Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Collection launch at Sephora in New York City in May, she paired the look with neutral accessories and an out of this world afro. A style win in my book and a testament to the fact that her stylist, Charles Wade is way ahead of the trends.

So who wore it best? Arizona Muse taking on the look for Paul & Joe Spring 2012? Or Solange who wore the look months ago, setting trends? Discuss!
