Solange Knowles impressed with her bargain outfit at the Reed x Kohl's event in New York City.

Solange Knowles looked like a million bucks while stepping out in a $55 (GBP38) dress at the Reed x Kohl’s Collection launch on Wednesday (22Apr16).

Beyonce's 29-year-old sister, who has become an alternative style icon in recent years, could have easily opted to wear a couture gown worth thousands, but instead she close a frock from designer Reed Krakoff's new line with budget department store Kohl's.

The sleeveless, multi-coloured dress she wore featured an asymmetrical cut and a scoop neck, which sculpted her body by flattering all of her best assets. She completed the outfit off by pairing the dress with strappy black and white heels and matching a bag from the same collection.

The dress Solange wore will sell at retail outlets for just over $55, and the entire Reed x Kohl's collection, which includes handbags and a range of apparel, is highly affordable, with no piece selling for more than $129 (GBP90).

Solange has previously spoken about her versatile style, noting she needs to switch up the type of attire she wears every now and again to stay happy.

"Once I really defined my expectations in terms of how to navigate through the fashion world without getting myself too invested, I've had a hell of a lot of fun," she told Lurve magazine.

Beyonce's younger sister also finds it fascinating she is considered by many to be a modern style icon - a title she has struggled to accept for quite some time.

"I've always had an annoying relationship with the term 'tastemaker', but it's been a defining part of my career for the past couple of years," she told Harper's Bazaar magazine.
