10 Outfit Inspiration | Victoria Beckham

Known for her polished look, minimal accessories and clever knack for showing how to style her eponymous fashion line at every opportunity, there’s no doubt that Victoria Beckham is a modern style icon from whom we can all take a few sartorial notes. In fact, if you’ve been lusting after a white handbag or become brave about colour-blocking then the designer formerly known as Posh Spice is already influencing your wardrobe. 

From her chic-yet-shaggy bob and tailoring obsession to her love of slouchy fits and pleated skirts, here are 43 style tips to  adopt courtesy of VB as celebrates her 44th birthday soon..

1. Always have sunglasses handy

Whether indoors or out, summer or winter, Beckham is rarely seen without her signature D-frame sunglasses. As well as of course protecting your eyes- vital when you’ve just come off a transatlantic flight but still need to do your airport catwalk- they lend a chic touch to even the most minimal outfits.

2. Dress down with a T-shirt

It’s no good having separate day-to-night wardrobes that confine your most exciting buys to past-8pm. Pair an embellished or printed skirt with a simple tee to make it appropriate for work. Keen to further dress down your look for weekend plans? Wear with box-fresh white sneakers and a cross body bag.

3. Colour blocking isn’t as daunting as it sounds

Recently Beckham’s typically dark wardrobe has had a colour makeover- and we approve wholeheartedly. Here, the fashion designer pairs a yellow dress with turquoise high-cut shoes for a stylish, spring-ready look. Not so keen on bright colours? Start by colour blocking  burgundy, navy and khaki then ease into brights.

4. Don’t be afraid of statement red

Red is big news this season, and if you’re not brave enough to opt in for a full-look, why not dip your toes in the trend via a slingback shoe or with an elegant top handle bag? Beckham’s knitted dress is flattering and perfect for day-to-night. Note the contrasting shirt underneath, too.

5. A choppy bob is ideal for easy styling

If you’re looking to switch up your look for spring and are considering going from long to short, take notes from VB’s choppy bob. The suits-all cut is ideal for easy styling and is long enough to tie up in a ponytail. Wear it in loose waves a la Victoria, who sent Instagram into a meltdown when she unveiled her new length last year.

6. Swap wintry black accessories for bright white ones

Not only is the cut of Beckham’s new favourite shoe flattering and leg-elongating, the white hue makes them seem spring-ready without baring your whole foot. Her matching bag further cements this look as one which offers excellent style impct without looking too try-hard.

7. Try a new bag shape: the half-moon

Not quite ready to embrace the micro bag? Beckham makes the case for a slightly roomier, but super sleek, semi circle shape that adds interest to a simple look. Hers is of course from her eponymous brand and costs upwards of £1,000, but other cool bag labels, Mansur Gavriel and A.P.C, also offer this shape at more affordable price points.

8. Denim doesn’t have to mean casual

A slim fit knit and nude heels will instantly elevate denim into evening status. The key to this is to ensure there are more dressy elements to your outfit than casual; pair with a small clutch rather than a large tote, and keep makeup and hair sleek to lend to your pulled-together vibe.

9. A smokey eye can be subtle

It’s rare we see Beckham with a bright lip, instead she prefers a subtle smokey eye. If you’re heading out for the evening but don’t want to look too ‘done’, VB’s method could be for you. Go for browns and golds which flatter all eye colours.

10. A camel suit is an investment you won’t regret

Masculine tailoring is big news for this season as well as next, but of course, Beckham is already in on the act. Although there are a plethora of pastel blue and blush pink options on the high street, for longevity and to see you through to winter, camel and grey are timeless options.
