5 Wardrobe Staples Every 30-Year-Old Should Own, According To Victoria Beckham
Curating the perfect lineup of wardrobe staples by the time you're 30 is no easy feat, but who better to look towards for inspiration than Victoria Beckham? Style comes easy to the 44-year-old, who, in addition to designing her own cult-favorite line, has acquired a near-perfect wardrobe. And channeling Beckham's style is easier than you'd imagine: All you'll need is a handful of sharp, wear-with-everything pieces.
Ahead, The Zoe Report breaks down the five wardrobe staples Beckham keeps in constant rotation, along with the best pieces on the market to make each look your own. Consider these closet essentials the ultimate investment pieces — like Beckham, you'll be able to wear them for years to come.
Beckham is of the belief that there's little you can't pair with a black blazer. Whether she's wearing hers with matching, tailored trousers or a simple jeans-and-t-shirt look, the designer relies on her black blazers no matter the occasion. It makes sense, too, considering a sharp jacket is the perfect way to elevate any simple outfit. Pro tip: During the colder months, you can even layer your blazer under your outerwear (that way, you have a fresh, polished outfit as you walk indoors).
It doesn't get more essential than a crisp, white t-shirt. Pairing hers with trendier pieces like leather pants and silky midi skirts, Beckham proves this wardrobe staple shouldn't be overlooked. Plus, some of best tees on the market come with the most reasonable price tags. When shopping for your own, look for relaxed silhouettes rendered in soft materials like cotton.
If all-black outfits are a mainstay in your closet, invest in an oversized camel coat for a rich contrast. Beckham continues to prove the power of longline silhouettes, draping hers over chunky sweaters, baggy pants, and sky-high shoes. On tired days when piecing together a smart outfit feels impossible, look towards your coat as an easy way to bring your entire look together.
Though matching suit sets have gained serious momentum this season, Beckham has been wearing hers for years. The 44-year-old mixes sharp, tailored blazers with relaxed trousers for a look that feels inherently polished. Beckham's closet is surely lined with suits rendered in every color in the rainbow, but lately, she's been biased to jewel tones and pops of color.
When she isn't wearing a tailored suit, Beckham relies on high-waisted, vintage-wash jeans to create an effortless (yet elevated) off-duty look. Counteract the casual aesthetic of your jeans with turtleneck sweaters, ankle boots, and a signature accessory (Beckham's is obviously a pair of oversized sunglasses, but don't be afraid to tailor yours to your personal style — think: a mini croc-effect bag or layered necklaces).
