December is right around the corner, how about we talk about those party outfits you’re so excited to put together? Starting with Victoria Beckham’s classic style, we’ll take notes and ideas from the famous ones and we’ll work our own outfits accordingly!
Today we talk about the classic maxi skirt. In black, with feminine pleats! The kind Victoria Beckham chose to wear for a recent launch event in London’s most hyped Selfridges department store. She paired her with a crisp white knitted turtleneck sweater to keep warm and comfy for cold days.
From her own eponymous collection, the black pleated maxi skirt worn by Victoria is a classic example of dressing up for a fancy occasion all in being elegant, comfy and cozy at once. During the ruthless winter months, we all crave for warmth and comfort so this would be an ideal combo if you’re aiming for a toned-down elegant ensemble for the upcoming party season! The type of wearable outfit inspiration we’re rarely getting from the famous ones who’d do almost anything to stand out and look different.
A smart way to dress, from formal dinners or family get-togethers, you can choose to wear the maxi skirt with either high heels to take the elegance up a notch or with flat shoes/boots – the skirt will cover them either way so you’ll feel perfectly comfortable and still look amazingly graceful and elegant!
Remember the turtleneck sweater, it’s a timeless garment you can wear with all-lenghts skirts and trousers, jeans or shorts! You can also forget about adding jewelry to this outfit, there’s no need to complicate things – keep it discrete with a pair of nice earrings (the turtleneck will do most of the face-flattering work better than any bling will). Add a bracelet or a chain belt like Victoria has the chain detail on her skirt. Be careful not to make it too obvious, the idea of this entire ensemble is discretion and comfort!
Update: Victoria recently wore the same style in opposite colors:
