Victoria Beckham just showed her Fall 2012 collection at New York Fashion Week. Although she only debuted 20 looks for the collection, the dresses, because that’s what she makes (not pants, skirts or outerwear), were succinct and straight to the point. Her label- Victoria, Victoria Beckham, is wildly popular due to her ability to focus on just a few trends and work them into her dresses to perfection.
The silhouettes weren’t voluminous like they have been in the past, but very slim and cut straight up and down. Long sleeve dresses and drop waists with pleats were at the heart of her collection. The colors weren’t sharp, brights for Spring, but a more subdued palette that will work perfectly for Fall.
My absolute favorite trend from the collection was the contrasting cuffs and collars. They are exactly what’s hot now and easy enough for even the most non fashion-forward person to pull off. An easy way to get the look, without shelling out big bucks for a new wardrobe, is to layer a collared shirt under a different colored dress. You can roll the sleeves up so that the contrasting cuff shows from underneath, and just make sure the collar is pulled out and showing from under the dress. If you wear hijab, just tuck in a small scarf- maybe one that was so small you weren’t sure exactly what to do with it before. The less bulky it is, the better.
Victoria does what she does best, designs simple little dresses that everyone wants to wear. What did you think of her collection? Did you have any favorite pieces?
