Style File: Kelly Rowland!

"I'm so real, so soft to touch/ My love my kiss so sweet, glorious/ The look on your face/ Anyone can see/No one does it like me."--Kelly Rowland, 'Can't Nobody.'

Hey Guys,
So I'm going to make celebrity 'style file' a regular post every week...and this week, my Style File pick is cute Kelly Rowland.

Though she (and everyone else in D's Child) has always played second fiddle to the mighty Beyonce, Kelly has come to the forefront as a fashionista with a wardrobe that's chic, understated, and sophisticated. Let's take a look:
Kelly looks great in everything from casual t's, jeans, and shades...

To divalicious pencil skirts and pants suits.

She keeps it simple when she goes out...

...adding great accessories like belts, metallic clutches, and jewelry to slinky black pieces.
While she doesn't depart far from a black, white, or neutral color pallette...

..she still, at times, sauces it up with a patterned sexy top.

Want her look? Try these Fashion Bomb Certified items:

Clockwise from left: Susana Monaco Hudson Peg Dress, $124,
Monsac Crinkle Patent Leather Clutch, $98,; High Waist Pencil Skirt, $78,; Bloomingdales One Button Jacket and Wide Legged Pants, $130-$200,; French Connection Brenda Waist Belt, $78,; Tricia Fix Goddess Top, $198, CoutureCandy
Extra Long Chain and Pearl Necklace, $15,; Ya-Ya Swahili Beach Miller Pant, $230,

Have a good one!

Kelendria just glows. Very glamorous, pared-down look.

The style is not problem for me it is the hair.

She should go back to having short hair as it suits her face better

Thank you so much for this! I am always checking for Kelly Rowland these days. Her style is impeccable without looking like she is trying to hard. P.S. I love the hair, its much better then the short red 'do she was rockin' a couple of years ago.

Thanks for the post. I loooooooove me some Kelly Rowland and she was my favourite in DC. She is repping for the chocolate sisters. She's my inspiration and for me she can do no wrong.
