How to Dress Better for Work, According to Victoria Beckham
Victoria Beckham may have once been known for her affinity for the little Gucci dress, but these days, there’s a different look we attribute to the designer. Beckham has a knack for pulling off polished, office-ready looks that steer totally clear of ever bordering on boring. What can we say other than she’s nailed boss-lady style from head to toe. And while she heavily favors her own designs (we can’t say we blame her), there are some major lessons to learn from her go-to looks.
To prove it, we picked five looks we love and noted exactly what makes them stand out from the 9-to-5 crowd. Inspired by her polished but fashion-forward style, you’ll feel like dressing for work has never been easier. Consider these five Victoria Beckham–approved looks your new Monday-to-Friday style inspiration.

We definitely don’t have anything against head-to-toe black; it’s simple, flattering, and makes us feel powerful. But there's something to be said for venturing into bolder looks. Bright colors and eye-catching prints make you stand out in a room of matching blazers.

Sometimes, there’s nothing that makes us feel better than going back to the classics: a white button-down and tailored pants. If you’re going for these pieces, fit is key.

Victoria Beckham’s take on the suit works because it combines two important things: fit and styling. Her look is impeccably tailored, and while she doesn’t shy from color or print, she chooses a look that still feels professional.

When you’re feeling like it’s a sneaker kind of day, take a cue from Victoria and keep the rest of your look ultra polished. Trousers or a sleek, sophisticated dress help balance out your cool kicks.
