Victoria Beckham Pre-Fall 22: 5 styling hacks to refresh your wardrobe Style inspo.
February 14, 2022
Taking a closer look at Victoria Beckham Pre Fall 22 runway collection, we spotted five great styling hacks that you can start using to refresh your wardrobe. The British singer turned luxury fashion designer presented her usual sleek and minimalist garments, adding a touch of sexiness for next season. Beckham explained, “I want to bring sexy back but in my way (…) I want to celebrate being a woman, accentuate my bum and my waist and feel sexy again. I want more structure, I want a leaner silhouette, and I want to make more of an event of dressing.” And she added, “there have been too many seasons of being too comfortable in the office. Get back to the office and put on some smart clothes!”
In addition, she also launched her brand’s monogram, a subtle and sophisticated V.B. emblazoned across several pieces, in synch with the comeback of logomania.
So, inspired by Victoria Beckham Pre Fall 22 collection, here are five simple styling hacks that you should consider incorporating. By adding small details, you can take outfits you already have in your wardrobe to another level, making them look modern and fab.

Twining is wining
Like the former Posh Spice, most of us are tired of relaxed looks. We want to dress up again, and nothing’s chicer than the sets and business-ready tailoring of the Victoria Beckham Pre-Fall 22 collection. Matching trousers and shirts or jackets in the same materials creates elongated silhouettes and polished looks. The twining sets come with a retro aviator uniform vibe and make excellent office outfits. We also saw the matching-set trend at Copenhagen Fashion Week, but in more relaxed looks for spring/summer.
Our Tip: Choose a short-sleeved shirt from your wardrobe. Layer it over a turtleneck and button the shirt all the way up to recreate the retro-inspired styling of Victoria Beckham. Additionally, you can wear these looks during the day with sneakers and an oversized bag, one of the bag trends for spring/summer 2022. Then, transform your outfit to go out at night by adding heels and statement jewellery pieces.
Playing with different textures
The designer adds a twist to her all-black outfits by playing with different textures. Small details make all the difference. For example, she embellishes monochrome looks with shiny leather trims, pockets and cuffs that bring a touch of luxury to minimalist outfits.
Our Tip: You can update shirts and knitwear you already have by adding a leather collar and cuffs.
A splash of colour
A great styling hack we saw at Victoria Beckham’s Pre-Fall 22 show is to wear daring bright colours, either from head to toe in matching sets or just add a splash colour like turquoise, for example, peeking from under the garments. Beckham said the interiors of the Palm Beach restaurant Sant Ambroeus inspired her to use these colours in her latest collection.
Our Tip: Go for a monochrome look like Victoria Beckham’s red styling or use her layering hack. Layer a bright-coloured turtle neck or long-sleeved top under dresses, jumpsuits or shirts to wake up your look. Among the colours, bright green is a hue that will be everywhere next season.
Wear neon colours
The ’80s neon trend that’s been back in fashion recently is going nowhere. So, consider investing in some statement pieces to refresh your wardrobe. Victoria Beckham Pre-Fall 22 neon looks come in acid green and yellow. Her take on the power suit is amped up in eye-popping green. She also pairs a yellow slip dress with an electric green turtleneck and matching shoes.
Our Tip: You don’t have to wear neon from head to toe. By adding one neon garment or accessory, you will make your whole outfit modern and fresh.
As the designer explained, she wanted to bring sexy back. She does it indeed with the open-and-shut zippers that embellish and structure some of her runway looks. Besides adding sexiness to trousers and dresses, the zippers also allow you to create different silhouettes with the same garment. By the way, do you know the history of the zipper?
Our Tip: Victoria Beckham’s styling hack here is that you can dose the amount of skin you show by unzipping strategically as much as you want. And more importantly, rather than flashing the flesh, the absolute sexiness of these pieces lies in the possibility that the zipper hints.
