Style Rx: Victoria Beckham, Please Ditch the Shiny Short Pants

Who: Victoria Beckham

Where: At a Vogue dinner in London

Diagnosis: Empty closet syndrome. That’s the only reasonable conclusion we can come to after seeing this haphazard amalgamation of wardrobe items, which bears a strong resemblance to the outfit we put together on laundry day when things are really dire. The only difference is that we only wear our shiny capris/wool turtleneck/white T combo to the laundry room — not to dinner with Anna Wintour.

Prognosis: Our first and most immediate concern is those pants, which we fear may now be seen on women the world over who are not Victoria Beckham. They must be immediately replaced with a slim leather pencil skirt before such an epidemic occurs. Ditch the tee, keep the shoes and add a bold bracelet and we’ll be on the road to recovery.

I love it! She looks adorable. More importantly, I think I still have those pants left in my closet from 2001, and I’m bringing them back!

I love the pants. The combo with the vest/sweater/turtleneck thingy is a bit odd, but she’s Victoria Beckham. She can wear what she wants and she looks great!

My issue is the white t she has under that crop turtleneck. Other than that, classic black outfit — and isn’t that sateen? Isn’t that what a lot of pants are made out of these days?!?
