From moving fresh out of Houston, Texas, as a teenager to a steady rise in the industry, the growth trajectory of Beyoncé has been anything but stagnant. Ever since she entered the world of music, she’s turned to fashion as an instrument to portray her persona. The 90s saw Destiny’s Child bandmates don costumes designed by Tina Knowles (Beyoncé’s mother), and while all of them wore identical outfits, their style was rather singular.
From cargo pants, crop tops, overalls, mini dresses to championing the signature Tommy Girl aesthetic in tube tops, Beyoncé’s transition runs parallel with a profound fashion case-study.
From then to now, her Instagram (with a jaw-dropping million following) is filled with distinct nuances. Following her separation from the band, Beyoncé learnt the art of making a good fashion mix, and honestly, we’re here for it. Whether it’s representing under-the-radar, fresh and emerging designers to striking a pose in her favourite numbers from Versace, Gucci, Balmain, Peter Dundas and more, let’s just say, she runs the world.
But emulating her style isn’t as difficult as it seems. Heavy, applique gowns and high-shine jewellery aside, here’s everything you can learn from Beyoncé.
