If Victoria Beckham Moves Back To London, What Would It Mean For Her Style?

27 November 2012 by

You might think that the Victoria Beckham fashion formula is an easy one (her own creation + pout + skyscrapers) so where ever she lives, her style won't change. C'mon we're not going to see VB in board shorts down under or in a NY Knicks jersey, right?

But the latest rumour is that Mr and Mrs Becks are returning to England - eek! David is due to leave LA Galaxy and Victoria has since been spotted mansion hunting in South-West London. If she DOES purchase the Grade II listed mansion in Richmond that she was looking at yesterday, will her style go a bit more, well, posh? You see, VB's style formula is not as simple as it seems so we've done the sartorial maths to make some fash-culations and predict what the move back to Blighty would mean for Victoria's style...

1. No more flashing of her arms

We looked back in the VB fashion archives and discovered that in London Victoria keeps her arms firmly covered in long sleeved dresses, but in LA Victoria wears short sleeved dresses and even spaghetti strap camisoles. Something to do with the weather. One thing we know is that we will never ever ever see Victora Beckham strolling round London in a skinny strap vest.

2. Black n' Blue

When in London Vic sticks to black, cream and navy (although she did wear Wimbledon green to watch the tennis this year), and none of the bright colours such as tangerine, hot pink, electric blues she experiments with LA.

3. Coats

Yesterday Vic was spotted house hunting in an oversized coat with gold buttons, and we think the move to London would mean she would finally get use out of her A/W 2012 outerwear and try out every single one of her military coats with waist belts.

4. British Heritage

We're preparing for a more classic VB - think macs, like the cape-trench Comme des Garcons coat she wore from LA to London back in July, and check like the Comme des Garcons patchwork dress she wore last week to the Ramsays for Thanksgiving dins. It's unlikely we'll see her in wellies and a barbour, but we think more classic military styles could be on their way.

One thing we do know is that whatever style, era or colour palette she goes for, Vic will have a mahoosive pair of sunnies and a killer pout. Take a look through our gallery above of Victoria's style in LA vs London...
