Shopping Fix: Get Solange Knowles' Matchy Matchy Look

Flicking through our infinite celeb database (err, the web) - we couldn't help but heart this picture of Solange and tuck it to one side. We've seen grown-up co-ord looks like her Paper London set everywhere (our Shopping Editor Lily Russo was already swooning over the Topshop twin-set back in December in prep for the festive period - we're pleased to say they're STILL in stock).

This look is more luxe and sophisticated than summer's matchy-matchy prints (although our beloved prints will never get old): think sheeny duchesse satin, leather and silks but stockpile the tutti-frutti duos for your Beyonce-in-Brazil moment later this year. Our selection will look fabulous both day and night: for daytime the jersery and wool versions will be great with black tights and ankle boots (or for the truly fashion-initiated, adopt co-ordinating pastel tights/ knee-high socks à la Miu Miu Spring Summer 14) and for night-time, work it like Solange: heels, a bare calf but for goodness' sake add a coat!

A defining feature here is the opportunity for a flash of midriff - only the tiniest flash mind you, and make sure it's high-up the waist (that's the most flattering spot) but keep hair and jewellery clean and simple. These separates will also integrate nicely into your daily wardrobe too (separately, obvs). Voila - you've got a seasonally transitional and versatile new look to see you through these gloomier months.
