Whether you love her, hate her, or would simply like to steal her husband, Victoria Beckham has a gift for provoking opinion among women (and sometimes men) everywhere. What cannot be denied is she’s one of the most stylish women on Earth, and someone to whom we can all look up to in the style stakes.
Getting the Victoria Look
Forget that the tabloid press says she’s always pouting and miserable looking; the fact is Mrs Beckham’s style brings together everything a girl wants to achieve from fashion; confidence, style, femininity, and even power with the right outfit.
The best thing about Vic is that when you look closely her fashion sense is actually remarkably simple. Here’s how to get the look.
Keeping it Simple
Timeless, classic, generally dark colours, and above all, simple; there’s a reason why Victoria is never pictured wearing questionable outfits. Who cares about being called boring by people who don’t know fashion if you get to look that good all of the time?
Her trademark look is the little black dress, which as Karl Lagerfeld famously said means you can never be overdressed nor underdressed. Easy to throw on with high heels, a handbag, and accessories, this is a Victoria Beckham essential.
When not rocking a LBD, a pencil skirt is another popular choice for Victoria. Think of the woman herself; black or grey is the direction to head here; resist those colourful and patterned pencil skirts that are widely available! Match your pencil skirt with a simple blouse, and you’re ready to go.
Denims and formal tailored trousers are always skinny; there’s no other way to do it, and can be worn with blouses, t-shirts, and finished with an oversized coat.
VB Add Ons & Accessories
What about the finishing touches to the Victoria Beckham look? The two obvious accessories are the sunglasses and the handbag. Ray Ban Wayfarers or other large lens, face covering glasses are a must, and if you’ve gone for the full look with a Victoria bob haircut your face will be framed beautifully.
For the handbag, you have licence to be creative, as it’s the one area Victoria perhaps doesn’t keep it simple. Instead, she prefers large handbags, and while she goes for black you can always go for a brighter colour if you wanted to put your own twist on the look and use it as a statement accessory.
Finish With Footwear
The question is the same as we all face; heeled or flat? The answer depends on what you’re wearing based on the products above. You can’t wear your LBD with anything other than heels, and the same stands for a pencil skirt, too. When it comes to denims and tailoring, the choice is yours, but flats are often a good change up if you want the more casual side of Victoria’s style.
