Get the look: Victoria Beckham’s ‘boyfriend shirt’ in Netflix doc sends sales soaring

Victoria Beckham

Posh Spice has sent shoppers wild for her boyfriend shirt in the Beckham Netflix docu-series.

The white shirt style has been a staple for quite some time now, but just as we thought it might have begun to fizzle out, enter the Victoria Beckham effect.

During her appearance in the new four-part Netflix series, Victoria chose to don an oversized white shirt during her at-home interviews.

Since the show aired, retailers have been reporting a huge increase in the number of people wearing the chic casual trend.

A spokesperson for John Lewis told the Guardian that sales of its relaxed cotton white shirt had quadrupled week on week.

Meanwhile, the creative director at Jigsaw, Jo Sykes, said: “For years we were trying to persuade customers to try a larger and more ‘manly’ type of shirt. 

“Now we can’t keep hold of them.”

In light of this new obsession, we’ve rounded up some high-street options for those of you who are now on the hunt for the perfect oversized white shirt.
