This week we’re taking a look at women of color with stand-out style and of course how their hair plays into their style.
Of all the fashionistas we looked at, socialite Shala Monroque seems to have the most fun with her hair, going from a teeny-tiny afro, to braids, to sleek buns, turbans and head bands. Her fashion style is über feminine and graceful, yet comfortable. She’s best friends with the likes of Dasha Zhukova, Margerita Missoni, Charlotte Casiraghi and Miuccia Prada and it shows. She describes her style as experimental (she likes looking for new things) but safe. Born in St. Lucia, her roots inspires her love of colour, “being surrounded by tropical flowers and a mesmerizing ocean” she explained to Vogue.com.au. But like the other fashionistas who made our list, Monroque finds that confidence is the most important aspect of any ensemble, “It’s not about the dress, it’s about your attitude and the confidence you have when you walk down the street.”
Below are the looks we love from Shala’s repetoir. Which would you rock?
