Steal their style: Mrs and Miss Beckham

Following on from the mama and me post (which by the way got a resounding ‘Yes’ for the cute factor and not a suggestion of naff-ness!) what better mother/daughter style to inspire than Victoria and Harper Beckham. As Victoria tweets pictures of their coordinated (not matching!) outfits laid out together ready for the day you start to notice a theme; interesting cuts in block colours for mummy and pretty prints with girly detail for baby.

Of course, squeezing ourselves into figure-hugging dresses and vertiginous heels for a day with our little lady when we have to push a buggy and go to the park isn’t ideal. But taking key aspects of Mrs Beckham’s styling we can inspire our own mummy/baby wardrobes, suit our figures and be practical too.

Victoria beckham and harper seven style get the look


Look 1: Accent neutrals with a neon or zesty pop of colour
A collar smartens up your look but the drape of this dress will skim your mummy tummy and hips. Team with a blazer for lunch out or a garden party and a draped fine knit cardi for daywear.

Look 2: Contrast a black dress for mummy with a bright girly print
This two layer black dress gives an element of body-con with the loose top to disguise your tummy and break up the hip area. Dress an LBD down for day with cork wedges.

Look 3: Go tonal. Choose a darker shade for you and the lighter paler version for your daughter
Nip in your waist and flatter your curves with this Cos dress and add a slim belt for detail. Avoid a wide belt as it will distract from the subtle texture on the dress. A jewelled pump is practical but adds a bit of glitz.

Style tips:

  • Stick to block colour for you and prints for your little lady.
  • Nudes in place of the grey dress would work well with a bright peachy coral print on your mini me.
  • Try an emerald green for mummy with a pastel mint for tots, or cobalt with powder blue.
  • Avoid looking too dressy as a pair by choosing a casual look for your daughter if you’re donning an LBD.
  • Simply shaped dresses with interesting cuts look elegant and add an expensive-looking edge to your mum wardrobe.
