Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Victoria Beckham is Pretty in Plum
I used to be seriously worried about getting older. Not only because of the fear of my health failing or loved ones dying, but also…what would I wear? It seemed like once you got past 35, fashion decided to forsake women because, in general, society marginalizes women over 30. Luckily, after delving more into the world of fashion, I realized that there are tons of timeless pieces that are appropriate for women from 20 to 80. Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is approaching 40 (!!!) and she is definitely one of my fashionista role models. She has an amazing sense of style that is generally refined, chic and sexy.
I am completely obsessed with this gray dress from ASOS, especially the textured fabric. It’s elegant while still maintaining a visual edge. Combining it with a plum cardigan creates a rich color palate, and a black belt adds a subtle twist. A red structured bag is an interesting choice, but it complements the gray and purple well. Sky-high nude peeptoes complete the look. This is perfect for a formal event, but you could easily dress it down with flats or low heels.
