Victoria Beckham's Winter Look Features Bright Red "Optical Illusion Pants"

Now that Thanksgiving is over, the holiday season is in full swing, and it's time to dress like it. Take notes from Victoria Beckham: On Wednesday, while heading to a Reebok campaign shoot in New York City, the pop star turned designer turned YouTuber channeled a bright red holly berry in a pair of pants that wouldn't look out of place on Santa Claus come Christmas Eve—if Santa wore chic pantsuits originally designed for women, that is.

The trousers in question are a flattering high-waisted, wide-legged cut in a bold scarlet shade, designed by Beckham herself for her line's upcoming pre-spring 2019 collection. She paired the pants with an ivory crewneck sweater (another VB design) featuring red, yellow, and black color-blocked stripes across the front, plus oversize square sunglasses, a crimson purse she tucked under her arm, and a pair of sky-high black platform pumps. Though the pants were modeled in the collection alongside a matching red blazer, Beckham made the bold choice to go coat-free while out and about in blustery Manhattan.

Later on Wednesday, Beckham showed off the pants in a full-length mirror helpfully placed in her trailer on the set of her Reebok shoot. "Optical illusion pants!!! Even I look like I have long legs in these pants!!" she captioned a video in her Instagram Story in which she swayed from side to side to show off the piece's amazing leg-lengthening effects. "I am actually really obsessed with these pants from my Pre collection," she explained in another few videos. "Because I put a really, really high shoe under them and I look like I've got really long legs, which, in actual fact, I don't have. It's an optical illusion!"

She also shared a photo of the full pantsuit on Instagram, writing, "I'm obsessed with this red suit from my #VBPreSS19 collection! I wore the trousers to my friend @mrkimjones' @Dior show in Paris earlier this year and love how you can pair it with a sheer blouse, matching jacket or even this long sleeved stripe top."

Back in June, Beckham modeled yet another way to casually wear that daunting pair of fire-engine red trousers. While attending the Dior Homme Menswear spring/summer 2019 show at Paris Fashion Week, she wore the pants with another pair of towering high heels, but swapped the sweater for a sheer blue high-collared shirt over a matching bralette.
