5 Style Ideas VB Championed in 2019

As the year comes to a close, it’s a time to reflect on the style from the year that was. And while it was filled with everything from slick tailoring to beguiling eveningwear, an empowering and modern take on femininity unified the styles VB championed in 2019. Below, we break down five key takeaways from the year with a look forward to continuing strong fashion for 2020.


Lovely Links

Taking cues from archival, vintage-inspired chain motifs, the autumn winter collection featured a modern take on the classic motif. Scrawled across tops, skirts, and dresses, it became wildly popular for its subtle, yet sophisticated take on graphic dressing and has since been readapted for later seasons through bridle and scribble prints.


The Need for Tweed

This was the year that saw the heritage fabric take the plunge from the countryside to the city using a quirky mélange of colours with jolts of yellow and orange to create an autumnal foliage effect.


Modern Monochrome

One of the season’s strongest hues, lipstick red, became the new go-to, head-to-toe shade. An eye-catching statement for day or night, the colour was an optimistic antidote to traditional black.


Totally Tailored

What better way to dress up for night than in a slick tux? The new silhouette focused on an elongating silhouette rooted in high-waisted, wide-leg trousers and 1970s-inspired wide lapels.


The Season’s Impossibly Effortless Boot

Highlight posh pedicures with pop in the open-toe, heeled boot for maximum impact with a leg-lengthening effect.
