This New VB-Approved Trouser Trend Will Make Everyone’s Legs Look Longer

Today’s Victoria Beckham show in London marked a rather momentous occasion for the designer’s story: 10 years in the fashion industry and her position has never looked stronger. It has been a fast and furious few weeks—her Vogue cover-shoot and Juergen Teller campaign have notched up countless column inches—but let’s just take a moment to consider how much has happened across a decade. Not only did Victoria work tirelessly to win over an initially sceptical fashion pack of non-believers (oh, how times have changed!) but she’s been creating four collections a year (and that’s before you get onto sister line Victoria Victoria Beckham), introduced numerous must-haves, launched a beauty line with Esteé Lauder, a sportswear collab with Reebok, stores across the globe... her list of achievements goes on, and this morning we all had a reminder of why things have worked out: VB creates clothes for a modern, smart, together kind of woman like herself. This hasn’t been a case of throwing money and weight around but crafting an aesthetic and putting the legwork into quality products, flattering fits and the feeling of a lifestyle that comes with a Beckham purchase.

Effortless, billowing fabrics cut into simple, clean lines, paired with classic items like trench coats and given the ol’ star treatment via giant handbags and gold shoes (these really called out to the magpie in me, and I predict they will be popular) the range felt like it could suit so many of us. Her pieces are often a sign of our times (remember how she started out with super bodycon? It seems dated now but at the time this silhouette was entirely de riguer). One particular new trouser silhouette caught my eye: a skinny flare with a split at the front of the hem felt particularly flattering whether worn with flats or heels—versatile. These days we want easier wardrobes than that, and here it is for spring 2019.
