There are few people in this world who can do as much justice to a little black dress as Victoria Beckham. But the former Spice Girl has traded in her signature for a new look that is much more cozy than clubby. Over the past few months, Beckham has been spotted wandering the streets of New York City in pajamas—and only she could make them look posh. Granted, her PJs are more runway than just rolled out of bed.
Beckham has been seen in two similar looks consisting of an oversized plaid button-down and matching flowing trousers. She's accessorized both the daytime sleepwear looks with oversized black sunglasses, and in a sneak peak of her Spring 2018 collection, Beckham also wears the pink pajamas with white pointy shoes, a camel blazer, a camel cardigan, and a tan envelope clutch. Beckham previewed the pink pajama set back in June when she tweeted a photo of the look with the caption "Excited to be in New York to preview my #VBPreSS18 ready-to-wear collection! x VB."
Of course, high fashion pajamas are nothing new. Last year, the idea of wearing your intimates and sleep sets outside was on many designers' minds, from Nili Lotan to Equipment and Haider Ackerman.
For Beckham, though, the look is almost uncharacteristic. No doubt when Posh Spice pops into your head she's pictured in a tiny black dress and strappy heels no non-performer could walk in. Over the past year though Beckham has began to pivot, in favor of a more relaxed approach. "I think people saw the real me when I came out [at the end of her Victoria Beckham show in New York] in a pair of men’s trousers, a roll-neck and trainers," she told The Telegraph last year, adding, "I just can’t do heels any more. At least not when I’m working... Clothes have to be simple and comfortable." At least with these two looks, she's checking off both boxes.
