Victoria Beckham Reflects on Her Past Style, Says Wearing 'Very Tight' Clothes Were 'Sign of Insecurity'
Victoria Beckham, a patron of Graduate Fashion Week, answers fashion students from across the UK in a new post for The Guardian.
A student asked the 46-year-old designer about her personal style, which made Beckham think about her fashion development. "When I was at the Spice Girls, there were stylists who dressed the group, but I have never worked with a stylist in my private life. I used to wear a lot of structured dresses with a bodice, and I still have some of these dresses , but my personal style has become more relaxed, "she explained.
"Looking back, I think it was a sign of uncertainty that I would always wear clothes that were very tight and very tight," she said.
The mother of four said that as their business grew and they became busier, their style also changed.
"I just can't walk around the studio and do everything with high heels. I juggle a lot: being a mother, being a woman, being in the studio every day," she said. "I remember a time in New York when I was wearing masculine pants and sneakers and everyone was going crazy: 'Oh my god, she's wearing sneakers!' ""

Beckham also said that her confidence grew as she got older. "I know what works for me, what looks good, what makes me confident and comfortable. I don't feel like I have something to prove in my clothes now," she said.
The former band member of Spice Girls also remembered her rise in the fashion industry and told the students that if she could go back and give up her younger self-advice, it would be trusting her instincts.
"I always say that I can deal with mistakes I made, but not mistakes that were made against my instinct," she said. "Trust that belly - there's a reason for it."
When asked if she had ever missed being a pop star, Beckham said that she "had a lot of fun with the Spice Girls" but didn't miss those days.
"I love what I'm doing now because it's a real creative achievement for me. I love making women feel like they're the best version of themselves," she said. "I had a lot of fun with the Spice Girls, but I don't miss these days and I don't miss being on stage. That was then and now. I feel comfortable and excited in fashion."
"I look forward to the future in this industry. I think we can all do better personally and professionally," said Beckham, adding that the ongoing coronavirus pandemic was a valuable learning experience for many.
"The generation that is growing up will have experienced something none of us have," she said of the coronavirus pandemic. "I feel that this has taught us all a lot about how we can work together as teams, both in our personal and professional lives. In a way, this crisis will have broadened our horizons."

During the outbreak, Beckham quarantined with her family - husband David Beckham and her four children, sons Romeo (17) and Cruz (15), and 8-year-old daughter Harper. (Brooklyn, 21, lived separately with his girlfriend Nicola Peltz.)
The star admitted that throughout her time in prison, she made sure that she wakes up every morning and dresses like at work, albeit less formally.
“I still get up early and train every day, then I dress for work and for comfort. An old pair of jeans, a t-shirt or a sweater. I'm not quite in the elastic waistband stage yet - I still want to feel good, "said Beckham." We went on country walks every day, so I only wear an old pair of sneakers. It is so nice to do things with the family and not think too much about getting dressed. So definitely no paragraphs. "
