After watching the Beckham documentary, a few thoughts lingered with us after the credits rolled and the next Netflix suggestion timely started doing it's count down. Surely, it gave most viewers, myself included, an all too familiar glimpse into the dark side of fame while also glamorizing the 90’s in true tabloid form. We gladly ate it up and binged the whole series in one shot. It also pivoted our attention to the British (royal) family’s value system that perhaps we glazed over when it was orbiting us in real time - 25 years ago. No we’re not talking about the history lessons and pitch footage taken from Manchester United matches. That was pretty cool though (for our male readers, stand up, that last sentence was mostly for you). We want to talk about Victoria and how she has successfully managed to reign supreme in classic style since we first met her as just a Young Spice. Ditch the cinnamon and nutmeg this holiday season. Stock up on Posh. Victoria Beckham, formerly known as Posh Spice from the iconic British girl group Spice Girls, has transformed herself into a true fashion icon over the years. Her style evolution from the 90's until today has been nothing short of remarkable. And let’s be honest, she was everyone’s favorite Spice. But what is it that makes Victoria so..so.. Spicy? One of the key elements of Victoria Beckham's current style is her love for minimalism. She has mastered the art of clean lines, neutral colors, and tailored silhouettes. Beckham's minimalist approach to fashion has made her a timeless icon, as minimalism never goes out of style. Her attention to detail sets her apart from the crowd. From perfectly tailored garments to carefully selected accessories, she pays meticulous attention to every aspect of her outfits. This level of detail adds an extra touch of sophistication to her overall look, no matter the occasion. The Donna blouse is the perfect Classic Six piece to act as a foundation for has seamlessly adapted her style to the changing fashion landscape, incorporating modern elements while still staying true to her signature aesthetic. Which makes her extra cool.
You can add a bit of sophisticated spice to your personal style by taking a few tips from the expert herself, “Buy classics that will never date.”
Here are a few ways you can emulate Victoria's style with your own classics:
1. Experiment with Different NecklinesShe loves a white button-down, but who says a white button-down has to be boring? Victoria Beckham is a master at adding a twist to classic pieces. Try experimenting with different necklines, such as a deep V-neck or an off-the-shoulder style or go oversized for a very posh look.
2. Play with ProportionsVictoria Beckham is known for her love of playing with proportions, and you can do the same with a great blazer. Pair it with high-waisted trousers or a midi skirt to create a chic and sophisticated silhouette. Alternatively, tuck it into a pair of tailored shorts for a more casual yet stylish vibe. Better yet, go with a full suit. Don't forget the sunglasses and the pout.
3. Layer it UpLayering is another key element of Victoria Beckham's style. Don't be afraid to layer your classics. Whether it be your button-down under a sweater or your blazer over your tees topped with a great monochromatic coat.
4. Don't Forget the ShoesVictoria Beckham is often seen wearing killer heels, and you can follow in her footsteps. The simplest look of all? A great white button-down and jeans with a pair of pumps or ankle boots.
