Who to Channel This Party Season? Solange Knowles, of Course!

If you hadn't already come around to the fact that fancy pants are the optimal party gear this year (and if you missed our gallery of pitch perfect after-dark trousers), then this high-impact, highly directional Rosie Assoulin look on Solange Knowles may be the deciding factor. With dramatic swathes of fabric artfully falling off the DJ's shoulders and the equally showstopping flared culottes, Solange does full justice to Assoulin's signature jumbo silhouettes by forgoing the need for excess accessories or ultra-glamorous makeup. The perfect fashion plate, Solange allows this new, popular breed of couture-like evening wear to shine. Then again, this has become a tried and tested meeting of fashion minds, with the outfit pictured here marking the fourth time that Solange and Rosie Assoulin have been paired together to great effect. Long may the love-in continue!
