Victoria Beckham Braved Bare Ankles In Sub-Zero Temps

This weekend, the wind chill in New York City brought below-zero temps, but you never would've guessed a winter weather advisory was threatening by glancing at the crowds outside of Fashion Week. Legs went bare, flying in the face of potential frostbite, and Victoria Beckham’s were two of them. She smartly avoided shorter hemlines — which could have required actual medical attention — and opted, instead, for a tea-length number (and, hopefully, some quality heat-tech leggings).

She wore her low-key culottes with a slouchy cashmere sweater in an understated camel shade. Her subtly patterned scarf kept her neck warm, while the clutch pockets in her pants took care of her hands. Bare ankles were a brave move, but it’s not like you can wear bobby socks with Alaïa platforms. 

No one embraces the old “fashion is pain” adage quite than Beckham, but that doesn't mean you have to. There's a simple way to steal her look without freezing your toes off: Just add tights.
