Kim Kardashian West’s much-loved “naked” trend has been worn by A-listers from Bella Hadid to Beyoncé (and even Kate Middleton, in an entry level kind of way), but one fashion icon we thought never see take inspiration from KKW was, of course, Victoria Beckham. Until today, that is. Leaving her Dover Street store after hosting an art exhibit with Sotheby’s last night, Beckham wore a pair of black skinny trousers teamed with a tailored blazer—so far so VB—but in an unexpected style move, layered her separates over a nude bodysuit very reminiscent of Kim Kardashian circa 2016. Of course nowadays, KKW prefers to just go actually nude under her tuxedo.
Worn like Beckham under sleek tailoring, a nude body is an easy way to let stylish co-ords take centre stage, with out detracting from the vibe by adding a new colour. It’s also a softer alternative to all-black or the stark contrast between black on white.
Likewise, if you’re not quite brave enough for KKW’s bra-less approach to power dressing, you’ll find your chic workaround in VB’s latest styling trick.
