The 6 Perfect Pillars of Victoria Beckham's Summer Capsule Wardrobe

Victoria Beckham regularly tweaks how she dresses in accordance with the release of her own collections, as she knows that as one of the most photographed women in the world, she's a walking advertisement for her designs. So if red is the key colour for the house of VB, that's what she'll be wearing for the next six months. Despite these seasonal shifts, there are certain items that will forever be the pillars of her wardrobe, and every summer, there are six pieces in particular that she leans on.

Victoria's label is all about making getting dressed every morning easier, as her collections have a fashion edge but are predominately built of classics which can be easily styled and mixed together. Victoria will occasionally wear bold statement pieces, such as peep-toe knee-high boots, but most of what she wears is actually very simple and elegant with an understated approach to luxury. In the summer, she wears a lot of white T-shirts, oversized white shirts, printed midi dresses and a grown-up spin on a co-ord.

1. Printed Midi Dresses

This VB essential is one most Brits on lean on in summer months: a printed midi dress. Stripes, florals, chain prints, you name it—VB has designed and then worn it. She tends to favour more modest silhouettes with sleeves or high necklines.

2. Trousers + Shirt Pyjama Set

You know the feeling when it's so hot that you wish you could wear next to nothing? VB has found the next best thing: ultra lightweight trouser-and-shirt pyjama sets. The silky fabrics mean you'll barely feel like you're wearing anything.

3. White T-Shirts

Victoria Beckham has seemingly created the perfect T-shirt called the "Victoria"—a boxy men's-style tee with longer sleeves and a relaxed fit. She wears this more than anything else in summer. 

4. Pleated Skirts

Pleated skirts are another VB summer signature, and she doesn't just stick to classic navy and black midis. She has worn striped midis and bright colourful skirts, typically pairing them with either a white shirt or a white T-shirt. 

5. White Shirt

Victoria Beckham tends to subtly adjust her style each season to align with the aesthetic of her brand at the time. However, one consistent every summer is a white shirt. She often rolls the sleeves up to give it a more relaxed feel.

6. Blackout Sunglasses

A constant in all of Victoria Beckham's outfits—whether it's in February or August—rain or shine, is a pair of black-out sunglasses. The bigger and darker, the better is VB's rule—her own Flat Top Visor shades are her go-to pair.
