Solange's Suit Showcases A Surprisingly Practical Bra (PHOTOS)

Solange Knowles has fast become our favorite power-clasher and sartorial risk-taker. On Tuesday, the R&B singer combined two dissonant elements in signature form: a power suit and a visible bra. Try that in the boardroom.

Solange chose a cool striped suit in a boxy cut, paired with a tailored white shirt and pinstriped sunnies. But when she turned to the side, we saw that her blazer had open vents at the sides, revealing a wide swath of her practical bra.

We're intrigued by the notorious pattern-mixer's decision to match her clothes... and to showcase such a subdued bra, when we're used to celebs flashing racier lingerie. We're also stumped by the structural challenges that this suit must impose: Is Solange's shirt actually a shirt if it totally exposes what's underneath?

That certainly is one way to avoid sweat stains in the humid spring months. What do you think of Solange's strange suit?
