    Veronica Beard

    As well as sharing a name, sisters-in-law Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard share a love of beautifully made classic pieces with a contemporary twist that make getting dressed a breeze. This sartorial ethos is at the core of their eponymous label, which has gained cult status since its launch in 2010 and is a regular go-to in our own wardrobes.

    When we were deciding who should be the stars of our party special, the Veronica Beards were at the very top of our list. While their New York-based brand can be relied on for impeccable daywear (and the best-fitting jeans around), it also excels at versatile evening pieces that you’ll want to reach for time and again. And, boy, do they know how to dress up! Artfully mixing sharp tailoring with after-dark accessories, updating classic silhouettes with cocktail-ready transformers – and not forgetting a heavy dose of signature leopard print – the Veronicas’ personal party-wear collections are a masterclass in grown-up glamour.

    So impressive are their wardrobes that we simply had to jump on a plane and cross the Atlantic to take a closer look. Surrounded by framed photographs of iconic women throughout history, we discovered the forever staples, statement pieces and treasured keepsakes that make this stylish duo’s closets truly perfect.

    Veronica Miele Beard:

    “We knew there were women out there who, like us, wanted a chic answer to everyday dressing and layering. Our signature blazers can be dressed up or down for day-to-night wear. Each season we offer new fabrics and styles, giving our customers ways to effortlessly update their wardrobes.”

    Veronica Swanson Beard:

    “Leopard is our signature print. It matches nothing, yet it goes with everything, which makes for an artfully clashing look that never dates. I love to add a leopard-print bag or pair of shoes to my outfit to give it an edge.”

    “It’s not easy sharing a name, especially with your business partner, however, it’s also an incredibly special situation to be in. It was obvious that we had to name the brand ‘Veronica Beard’ – how could we not?!”

    Veronica Swanson Beard:

    “All these bracelets were gifts from my husband for various milestones. There’s also one that used to be my grandmother’s, and it’s one of my most cherished possessions. I get stopped all the time and asked about it. Looking at my wrist always makes me smile.”

    Veronica Swanson Beard:

    “This is my go-to evening bag from Saint Laurent – it’s an oldie but a goody. We have a statue of a leopard in every shop and each one has a different name.”
