Beyoncé’s style is anything but understated. Instead, she consistently makes a statement by opting for elevated and bold fashion picks that make headlines.

And when she wears a trouser suit, you can bet it’ll be something unique; an ensemble that is set apart from the rest.

A good case in point is the star’s outfit from a trip to Las Vegas in March, where she and husband Jay-Z celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary. She shared photos from the trip on her Instagram this weekend, and the look did not disappoint her fans.

The outfit in question was a white suit from Area, which the designer opened the brand’s spring/summer 2020 show with.

The plunging white blazer and matching trousers were adorned with an array of nameplate necklaces, and Beyoncé’s version was, of course, customised to include the singer’s name, as well as “Area” in English, Hebrew, Arabic and Chinese.

In true Queen Bey form, she also shared a close-up snap of her outfit where she’d removed three of the necklaces from the suit and wore them around her neck, which gave us true Nineties vibes.

Fans will also likely remember the singer’s Basile and Pope Bespoke Jewellery “Yonce” necklace, which she wore when she dropped her eponymous visual album in 2017, so she’s clearly a huge fan of wearing personalised bling.
