Can someone go ahead and crown Victoria Beckham the queen of upgrading basics? A few weeks ago, she taught us exactly how to turn a plain white T-shirt into an Instagram-able outfit. And now, she's schooling us on wearing leggings as — gasp — pants.

Beckham took a black pair of leggings ($1,100; farfetch.com)—stirrups and all—and created a polished street-style outfit worthy of winning a best-dressed award. Granted, her leggings are on the pricey side, but you don't have to spend rent on a pair of leggings to look like this — all you have to do is know how to style them.

Here, Beckham chose a blazer from her eponymous fashion line that stopped just below the hips to elevate her look. And she earned bonus points for wrapping a waist-cinching belt to her effortlessly polished outfit. Take notes because Beckham's got that I'm-not-trying-too-hard-but-I-look-damn-good thing down pat.
