We all know Victoria Beckham for her sky-high heels, Hermes Birken bags, and short hem-lines. No one says style and taking fashion risks quite like Posh Spice. Here’s how you can get her causual winter look without spending a fortune on designer items.
Let’s start out with a sweater, this Coincidence & Chance Oversized Intarsia Pullover Sweater from Urban Outfitters ($69.00) is the perfect mix of earthy and cool. With soothing purples, blacks, and whites, this sweater is the ultimate statement piece. Made of cotton, viscose, acrylic and angora, this sweater is super soft (think soft enough to sleep in). With a rounded scoop neck, it can be worn over the shoulders for that classic 80’s retro feel. The intricate detailing of knit cuffs and hems adds to the structure of the overall piece.
Pants and Leggings
American Eagle has a great selection of skinnies, leggings, jeggings jeans-all for under $50.00. This soft black pair of jeggings are made with a coated stretch cotton twill are super comfortable and flattering on many body types. Looking to go a bit bolder? Try the AE Jeather Pant-yes they look like leather minus the heavy texture and price. Made of polyester, spandex and cotton, these faux leather pants are the most fitted jeans in the AE collection. Bold, confident personality required to pull off these jeans.
Available in seven cute colors (think magenta and poppy; as well as basic black and camel) this cashmere newsboy hat from Nordstrom, $48.00, never goes out of style and goes great with a simple long-sleeve Henley shirt and khakis. This cashmere-wool blend has a chic knit texture; creating a modern and updated feel.
Another great option, the Lauren by Ralph Lauren Knit Newsboy Cap, Nordstrom, $39.00. Available in four trendy colors (including white and black) this cap has a unique braided trim accent and ribbed brim-the perfect amount of detailing to make this hat standout.
You don’t have to be a pilot to rock a great pair of Aviators. The SW Polarized Aviator Style glasses available at the Sunglass Warehouse are about the cost of movie ($16.95) and are available in bronze, grey, and cooper. The great element to these sunglasses is that they have Polarized lenses which reduce glare and provide UV400 protection great for everyone, but especially those with sensitive eyes. These comfortable, high-quality glasses give you that over-sized star-quality feel-minus looking like an insect.
