From dolled up WAG to polished fashion designer, Victoria Beckham has come a long way since she found fame as part of The Spice Girls. Turning 41 today, we’re sure David’s got the picture perfect day -and perhaps an enormous sparkler- ready and waiting. But we thought we’d honour her birthday in style by looking back at her best outfits.

After years of bodycon dresses and platforms, she now favours her own collection of impeccably cut investment pieces and a more relaxed elongated silhouette. Her signature look consists of chic tailored seperates in a monochrome palette and, of course, heels and oversized sunglasses. Here’s how to steal her trademark look:

Victoria Beckham outfitGet the look- from left: Simply Silver sterling silver stud earrings, DKNY silver coloured watch, J by Jasper Conran black leather mule court shoes, Warehouse boyfriend shirt, Phase Eight black pleated skirt, Gionni black round sunglasses, Nails Inc. Bamboo White nail polish, Estee Lauder Double Wear eye pencil.

A simple colour palette is key to the designer’s effortless look. Victoria’s wardrobe consists of black, white, navy and camel so make sure you stick to a simple palette of just two classic colours, like black and white. Posh is always spotted in a crisp white shirt, so invest in one of your own to steal her style. Pair it with a midi length skirt for a smart yet feminine look that will take you from desk to dinner.

Victoria once said  “I can’t concentrate in flats” so make sure you don’t forget your heels. These black pointed mules have Posh Spice written all over them. Queen Victoria may not need to carry a bag but if you need to, opt for this J by Jasper Conran envelope clutch bag. Dazzling accessories will finish your outfit in style, a simple wristwatch and diamond studs is all you need. Finally, emulate Beckhams’ muted manicure with her Bamboo White nail polish for Nails Inc and slick a little black eyeliner on to define your eyes.

From singer to designer, Victoria has always been a trendsetter. Here are a few of our favourite looks from her style evolution:
