Victoria Beckham Gets Real About Her Style Evolution

Victoria Beckham answered questions from fashion students from all over the United Kingdom in a new post for The Guardian.

When one student asked the designer about her personal style, Victoria couldn’t help but be reflective.

“When I was in the Spice Girls there were stylists who dressed the group, but in my personal life, I have never worked with a stylist. I used to wear lots of structured dresses with corsetry, and I do still have some of those dresses, but my personal style has become more relaxed,” she explained.

“Looking back, I guess it was a sign of insecurity that I would always wear clothes that were very tight, very fitted,” she said.

Victoria added that as her business became more successful, her style also changed.

“I just can’t run around the studio doing everything in high heels. I’m juggling a lot: being a mom, being a wife, being in the studio every day,” she said. “I remember one time at a show in New York where I wore a pair of masculine trousers and trainers, and everyone went crazy, ‘Oh my God, she’s wearing trainers!'”

“I know what works on me, what looks good, what makes me feel confident and comfortable. I don’t feel I have anything to prove now in the way I dress,” she explained.

The former Spice Girl said that if she could go back and give her younger self advice it would be to trust her instincts.

“I always say I can handle mistakes that were made by me, but not mistakes that were made against my instinct,” she said. “Trust that gut – it’s there for a reason.”

Thanks for the advice, Victoria. We totes agree.
