Victoria Beckham Shows How to Do a Novelty Print Like a Grown-Up
The pleated skirt, first popularized on the runways at Proenza Schouler, Céline, Altuzarra, and Gucci, has become every fashion girl’s best friend. It’s the kind of fail-proof piece that can be worked in a myriad of ways depending on the occasion: buttoned up with a sensible oxford shirt for the office, or zhooshed up for date night with a plunging V-neck top. Victoria Beckham has clearly figured out how to work the look into her winter street style wardrobe and was seen out in New York today wearing a pleated skirt of her own design.
The designer has never shied away from fashion-forward ideas—she has tricky-to-pull-off culottes in her closet, as well as oversize menswear looks—and today’s ensemble was just as spicy. Beckham’s orange turtleneck sweater is a nice departure from the muted colors we’re used to seeing at this time of year and also picks up on the hues in her skirt. The print itself—a charming matchstick illustration—is certainly vibrant enough to part the clouds on a gloomy midwinter’s afternoon in Manhattan.
