If Victoria Beckham is making an effort to distract us from potential personal-life dramas right now with an endless display of uber-chic street-style appearances, then she’s succeeding.
Seemingly spending the majority of her days walking from a hotel to a car in outfits each more chic than the last, Beckham has, this morning, stepped out in New York City in another trend we can add to cart: camo print. A simple square-cut tee in a painterly version of the classic print tucked into classic skinny jeans (with her now-signature overly long hem), the former pop star is letting us know that this is a look to get back into.
The camouflage trend has been popping up again over the last 12 months on celebs and style stars. A print that is never far from a revival, this season’s combat-chic is, however, a little less grunge and more unexpectedly tailored. There are still the classic anoraks but also cropping up are trim pencil trousers, skirts and chic bags.
It’s a print that ignites conversation every time it comes back, some love it, some hate it. In the mid 2000’s it hit an all-time high, when street fashion was flooded with incarnations of traditional greens and greys as well as mutations of blues, pinks and purples. It was around the time Von Dutch trucker caps were mega and people were wearing fitted tees over collared shirts. So, you heard it here first if these start their inevitable resurrection too.
For now, we’re style-stalking Beckham and noting that if her marriage gossip flares up again, and she needs to evade the paps, then she has cleverly brought back the perfect invisibility print.
