Victoria Beckham for Target Lookbook vs. Victoria, Victoria Beckham

With the launch of Victoria Beckham's collaboration with Target just a few weeks away, I thought it would be interesting to see how the Victoria Beckham for Target lookbook stacks up against previous Victoria, Victoria Beckham collections. Since its inception in 2011, the Victoria, Victoria Beckham line has become synonymous with chic yet whimsical designs such as drop-waist dresses, on-trend denim, conversation prints, bright party dresses, embellished bomber jackets, and work-ready blouses with a twist. While prices, materials, construction techniques, and tailoring may vary widely between the two collections, there are some strong similarities. Let's see just how similar VVB is to VBxTarget by taking a look at how posh style compares to lower price style. 

 Victoria Beckham for Target lace sweat top

The embroidered sweatshirt from fall 2016 and the VBxTarget navy and white lace appliqué sweat top both feature floral designs on a dark background. While the VVB version has more color, both pieces speak to the athleisure movement with their casual silhouettes. 

 Victoria Beckham for Target black collared dress

The fall 2012 black collared dress is almost identical to the one in VBxTarget. Both have contrasting cuffs, boxy shapes, and whimsical designs on the collar. Alice in Wonderland vibes, anyone? 

 Victoria Beckham for Target bug bomber jacket, bee print top

Bomber jackets, like sweatshirts, are on-trend and easy to wear. The embellished one from VVB spring 2017 isn't so different from the bug-embellished style from the Target collection. Both appear to have a shiny finish and are paired with white loose blouses and black bottoms. Target's version is the most expensive piece in the collection at $70.

 Victoria Beckham for Target calla lily blouse and pants

The matching blouse and pant set from resort 2017 looks somewhat like the VBxTarget calla lily look. Note the slouchy fit of the pants, long hemlines, and the large cuff on the blouses. (The whole look at Target is $70.) How's that for getting the look for less!

 Victoria Beckham for Target mint green lace dress

These two lace dresses are so similar that it might be hard to tell the difference unless you saw them in person. The pocket placement, nude lining, and soft mint color makes it an easy spring staple. Preview the Target style with info on price, fit and fabric.

 Victoria Beckham for Target photo floral top and skirt

The matching floral top and skirt set from VVB fall 2016 may have inspired the photo floral top and skirt from the Target line. Both have sleeve details, which are so important trend-wise right now. (The whole Target look is $58 and I can't wait to snag it for myself.)

 Victoria Beckham for Target Fuchsia top and flared pants

The monochromatic tank top and flared trouser set from VVB spring 2016 is not unlike the fuchsia twill version from the Target line. Note how the top has a frayed edge and center seam. (The Target look is $40 for trousers and $26 for the top.)

 Victoria Beckham for Target stripe poplin gathered waist dress

Striped poplin is everywhere this spring/summer, and the resort 2017 look by VVB looks a little like the poplin gathered waist dress in the Target collection. Both have narrow vertical stripes set against a gathered waist silhouette. (Just add heels for an office-ready look, or espadrilles for a laid-back weekend look.)

 Victoria Beckham for Target tulip print dress

The bold black graphic on the VVB spring 2016 look reminds me of the tulip appliqué shift dress in the VBxTarget line. Both looks feature A-line shapes, mod prints, and they draw the eye vertically due to print placement. Target's version will only set you back $40.

The VBxTarget line also features apparel for Plus sizes, Girl's, toddlers, and babies, so putting together adorable mommy-and-me looks for spring (and Mother's Day) will be a breeze.
