Veronica Beard Spring 2019 - Runway Review
September 10, 2018
The concrete jungle theme that pervaded Veronica Beard's Spring 2019 collection resonated both in its femininity and sex appeal -- and was a fabulous continuation of the '80s ode to Texas that was the Fall 2018 show (rhinestone belts remain a best-seller). From oversized door-knocker earrings to power suiting to a mash-up of plaids, stripes, laces and sequins, there was something in this charming collection for every woman to layer or simply have fun.
Sisters-in-law Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard have quickly built an empire based on easy-to-wear pieces perfect for both the soccer mom and professional banker alike. To wit, the dickey concept that now features in iterations like leopard, plaids and bold colors. For Spring, there was a big push into tailoring, be it the roomy short suits, pink plaid blazer worn with leopard print sequin pants and blazers with topstitching details cast in shades of red, magenta and black. The chunky belts, meanwhile, this time with Lucite buckles, paired nicely with long-sleeved silk dresses in tropical prints. There were also midis in a brown and blue batik and a cerulean dress cut like a Hawaiian shirt. Sure, it was all a bit '80s overload -- but we dare you to deny that these are the kinds of pieces any stylish lady will pack for her travels to come.
