For Victoria Beckham's Spring 2013 collection, gone are the pencil skirts and corsets of seasons past. Jokes. There were pencil skirts aplenty but the designer has added to her repertoire flippy minis and a midi for good measure. Between those and the monochrome palette with large swaths of of blood orange, the overall look was more sporty than previous seasons. Like it was made for a tennis player who plans to go from the court to the clubhouse and then out for the night without having to pack a massive gym bag. Plus, the fitted dresses and sheer fabric cut-outs helped many of the looks retain a good deal of sexiness that Beckham fans require.
