It was a picture perfect day for Singer Solange Knowles and now husband, Alan Ferguson who exchanged vows at the Marigny Opera House in New Orleans this Sunday. They rolled in riding white vintage bikes that matched her cream jumpsuit. During the ceremony, she wore a white gown made by her friend and collaborator; Humberto Leon for Kenzo, complementing the dress, were a statement gold cuff and a floor length cape. She ditched the traditional wedding gown and completely changed the game with all five outfits. Yes, five different outfits, all in white and all unbelievably chic. Three of the jumpsuits were designed by Stephane Rolland.

Solange broke all traditional “ideals” even further by having her court and family also wearing all white, husband Alan Ferguson was sleek and handsome in his all white suit. Her sister Beyoncé too was dressed in all white who was accompanied by Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy, also in white.

Knowles Commissioned photographer Rog Walker to take the official wedding portraits, as well as the jaw-dropping all-female family tableau that has been circulating the internet. The night appeared to be a memorable one with many highlights; one of them being an adorable choreographed dance between Solange and her ten-year-old son Daniel Julez to “No Flex Zone” by Rae Sremmurda.

Fall/Winter 2014 Jewelry Trends & Motifs

Piling up on rings, going bold on chains, and indulging in some classic motifs; let’s check out the essential jewellery trends for the 2014 Fall/Winter!

The use of jewelry marks another fascinating way of revealing bits about your inner self. This 2014 Fall/Winter, the jewelry trends are borrowing inspiration from anthropology, symbolism and mysticism, and displaying strong bohemian and western influences.

Neo-Bohemian Trend

This year has seen bohemian influences develop a whole new dimension of beauty, heritage, about the power of spiritualism. Indulge in gold chokers, delicate chains and rings, and engraved arm cuffs now and keep on layering against chunky knits and weightless button-down this cool season. To make the most of the neo-bohemian trend, seek unique and handcrafted designs, both delicate and loud, to layer together, or wear separately for more of a subtle look.

Symbolism Trend

Chic and chunky jewelry featuring crystal skulls and exaggerated eyes, pendants with key symbols hand engraved, tribal pieces made contemporary-chic: all delve in symbolism and the ’70s inspired mysticism.Tell a story this season by indulging in these magical jewelry motifs. From antique metals and semi-precious gemstone, to rough and rustic golds, and sterling silver, every setting is imagined to introduce a personal tale.

Western Influenced Trend

With the western style continuing to exercise its influence over the fall 2014 fashion trends, its impact managed to also shape the direction jewelry is taking this season. Western inspired square ties adorned with denim lapis stones, geometric shapes cast in antique plated silver, double stick collars and roped in earrings make the theme fresh and easy to indulge in.

Key Styles

With the key themes and motifs in mind, the jewelry styles to invest in for the fall are awaiting you:

-Stacking rings, of various sizes and shapes, both delicate and chunky
