It’s no surprise that David Beckham has led the masses with his impeccable yet never over the top style. Getting everything from formal wear to day to day looks just right, we’re here to show you how to emulate some of that effortless style, regardless of your budget. So, want to dress like David Beckham? Just read on.
What’s great about Beckham is that he’s one of the few A-list guys that isn’t afraid to experiment with his look – and he rarely uses a stylist to help him. In fact, you’ll often find Beckham turning-out the big fashion and grooming trends way ahead of the menswear masses. The man bun, the gentleman’s buzzcut, the summer pool slider- Becks called them all first.
So let’s start with the basics… t-shirts. They’re nothing new and they’re not a particularly exciting part of menswear. However, they’re necessary staples and can be worked into a tonne of looks. Again, Beckham doesn’t go over the top with his t-shirts, and the reason they work so well on him is because he gets the fit perfect. The sleeves are loose enough so he can move easily but slim enough that they don’t look baggy. He also sticks to simple necklines and ensures the tops are long enough to just meet his hipbone.
SIK SILK BROWN ROLLED SLEEVE LOGO T-SHIRT – £34.95
When it comes to his downtime attire, you’ll generally find that Beckham favours one colour above all others: black. Not only does the colour give the impression of an instant slim-down, you’ll probably find you already own a lot of the basics – a leather biker jacket, a basic black T-shirt, a wool top-coat. Do as Beckham does and anchor everything to a pair of slim-fit black jeans – and a pair of beautifully patent dark brown boots.
LEVI’S BLACK 519 ROOFTOP EXTREME SKINNY FIT JEANS – £84.95
Corporate Beckham opts for razor cut jackets with slim (but not overly so) trousers in wool. Not much of a black fan for tailoring, Beckham usually suits up in tobacco browns, navy and charcoal grey. His choice of suit for a meeting or business lunch is typically single breasted with a white shirt and navy tie.
MINIMUM DARK GREY MELANGE HUNTS BLAZER – £55.95
David Beckham’s clothes all have the same unified, classic style that makes them perfectly versatile and effortlessly flattering. Whether you’re after his casual, smart casual or formal style, they’re easy to replicate it without spending a fortune and will provide you with a timeless, flattering look.
