You may like Victoria Beckham, or dislike her. She sometimes comes off as an Ice Queen, she often seems distant, and on another note, we admire her as a mother and wife, but one thing holds true, she has many personas and maybe it’s not in her interest to let the public in on every one of them, which is understandable. I have followed her story with interest, when she first became the wife of the most sought after soccer player in the world, and then turned fashion designer. A lot of people thought she chose it, because fashion was a hobby for her and she needed something to pass the time and spend the money. Well, that’s actually far from the truth, because Victoria is so steadfast, relentless and progressive that she started her own empire of fabulous clothes and accessories lines in a relatively short amount of time. She is always flawless when photographers catch her in the street: her clean, simple elegance is a reflection of a somewhat withdrawn personality that doesn’t have much to do with her mini skirt, glitter and Spice Girls period. Victoria is definitely an interesting example of a modern woman with a distinctive fashion taste, which is why I was happy to follow her advice for better style. I think you may find something useful as well.
Style should be comfortable, timeless, personal. Create the impression that you didn’t put too much effort into it, because the true goal is confidence. And her fashion actually seems effortless, as if it happened by coincidence, even though it’s all very well thought out, and that’s what a modern woman should be like. A petite Parisian, very neat, but not at all fake. Good jeans, a very well tailored blazer, classic white shirt, and a versatile dress that boosts confidence and makes you feel comfortable, but is also attractive, so you wear it on date night … these are all must-have pieces that should be a part of any woman’s wardrobe. Busy moms, stay true to yourselves, don’t exaggerate. Don’t waste your energy, but do what is right for you. That’s what Victoria feels is the best way to go.
Sunglasses should be the crown piece among accessories, because they can hide the tell-tale signs of a sleepless night you spent by your kid’s bed. Have a chic and appropriately sized bag to fit all the children’s things. Every working mother knows this is key. Women don’t care all that much about fashion trends, it’s more important to listen to ourselves. It’s important to be confident. It’s smart to invest in some key pieces you can wear for a few seasons. Keep the focus on simplicity. A dress from Victoria’s collection is in her opinion one of the garments fit for any occasion; they’re basic dresses, finished with a long zipper, quick and easy, for work or a date. Opt for a gorgeous dress that makes you confident and sexy to wear to a date with your husband. It’s just as important to be attractive for yourself, as it is to be for your partner. Men like fitted dresses. The rule for accessories is less is more. A nice bag and sunglasses, a bit of jewellery, everything kept to a simple minimum.
Try to get a good night’s sleep before an important event. Drink lots of water, listen to good music while you’re getting ready, and enjoy the preparations. For women, fixing the hair and doing the makeup is the fun part. Make sure to take everything you need when you go travelling, because it would be a shame to forget something at home. Be ready for any scenario, and use paper towels. If you fold everything neatly, items won’t get too crinkly. And a final piece of wisdom: don’t dress for anyone other than to feel good yourselves. To feel superbly in your own skin.
