Victoria Beckham’s winter orange

Summer brights mid-winter

Victoria Beckham gave a lecture to lucky students of the London College of Fashion, alongside legendary fashion journalist Colin McDowall.

Never one to let sub-zero temperatures get in the way of a good outfit, the star shunned cosy tights in favour of bare (tanned) legs and cut-out black heels.

Though it does sound summery, Beckham’s not alone. Both Andrea Riseborough and Pixie Geldof chose the vibrant shade for the British Fashion Awards earlier this week, as did Bond Girl Berenice Marlohe for her latest Skyfall press conference.

Is it already time to dust off the summer brights?
