Every season, Victoria Beckham works an element of surprise into her collection. She stays true to her signature silhouettes: tailored coats and vests, structured dresses that still show off the figure, and movable skirts that fall just below the knees so as to show off functional loafers — this season featuring slices and buckles.
But look at how she's mixed up her classic checks. They give off the illusion of pixelated prints on eye-catching midis, which don't feel too dizzy thanks to a muted color palette: olive green, deep navy blue, cranberry, and burnt orange. Then there are the playful twists. From unexpected midriff cutouts on bustiers to sweaters splashed with bandeau-like graphics, Ms. Beckham got a little psychedelic for Fall 2016 but, of course, in the most posh way possible.
