David Beckham has led the way for stylish and sleek fashion for many years. Taking his own approach on edgy yet clean and chic appearances, from suits to casual denim looks, David Beckham’s clothing style gives us all the inspiration that we need to look good.
Achieving David Beckham’s Clothing Style
We will ignore some of the rather questionable items that David has worn in his first few years as a footballer and give him the benefit of the doubt – we all have fashion fopa’s every now and then. Having said that, considering he’s an ex-football player who is usually seen on the TV with messy hair and a sweaty face, David Beckham has managed to make sophistication and class look effortless with his clean-cut suits and soft causal attire. We have the perfect lookbook for you to follow in David Beckham’s footsteps and look undeniably stylish.
Suiting David Beckham’s Formal Clothing
Nothing says sophistication quite like a well-tailored suit, and it’s fair to say that David knows exactly where to find them. David uses a combination of clean-cut and subtle shades and never pushes the boat too far when oping for a suit colour. This helps when pairing colours with each other and means that you can avoid that awkward colour clash that everyone dreads. To achieve this, opt for a suit that has one shade such as our Marc Darcy Dion Blue three-piece suit, so there is less chance that your tie and shoes will clash with your look. You can have a look through a range of tailored two and three-piece suits in our collection on men’s suits. Regardless of the colour of your suit, we recommend pairing it with a crisp white shirt to achieve that effortlessly classy David Beckham look.
There is a difference between looking smart in a well-tailored suit and suffocating yourself in a tight shirt and jacket. A suit shouldn’t be baggy around the shoulders, nor should the sleeves hide your hands and touch your knees. You can follow Esquire’s blog post to help you know when your suit is the perfect fit, and when you’ve over or underestimated the size of your muscles.
David Beckham tends to choose simplistic designs for his suits and then accessories them with pocket cloths and tie clips. If you want to take notes from David but you’re not quite confident to go all out, then we would suggest that you try wearing a black or navy suit and then venture out to checkered designs.
Casually Copying David
David Beckham’s clean finishes and colouring choices don’t stop at his perfectly fitting suits. His casual clothing brings us an almost soft grungy style with natural colours and a lot of denim. One of our favourite range of pieces that David wears are his varying denim jacket designs. From light washed denim shirts to black denim on denim with a jacket and jeans combo, he’s got it all. Take a look at our range of men’s jacket’s for achieve your perfect David denim look.
To accompany his denim look, he often wears a plain t-shirt with a checkered shirt over the top to create a layered and textured look. If you would like to complete this look, then add a chain to your jeans, a thin chain necklace and a big statement watch. While you take inspiration from a national football legend, be sure that add your own small touches such as jewellery and other accessories to give it your personal touch.
Leathering It Up
Leather jackets are the perfect way to dress up an outfit regardless of how plain the rest of your clothes may be. David Beckham and his clean-cut quiff has guided the way and shown us just how laid back and collected a biker jacket can be.
Whether you want a summer outfit addition or an extra winter layer, a leather jacket is a perfect way to dress up an outfit. In the summer you can wear a light leather bomber jacket to look effortlessly chic, and in the winter you can layer up your outfit with a scarf and a jumper.
A leather jacket can be paired with pretty much any outfit as long as you choose a colour that matches most others. For example, a black leather jacket can go with black jeans, blue jeans and even smart checked trousers. Depending on the design of your leather jacket, you can have a subtle look or a real biker boy vibe.
Changing Shirts With Beckham
One of Beckham’s many fashion inspirations is his casual yet formal shirt on shirt look. This look is very simple and easy to achieve during the winter and the summer. For a winter look, take your favourite men’s t-shirt or try out our soft white slim-fit t-shirt and place a smart long sleeve shirt over the top. For a summer look, place a short sleeve shirt over the top of your t-shirt, and be sure to pick out a funky pattern from our men’s clothing range to get you into the summer mood. You can then choose whether to have it buttoned up or leave it hanging open.
The perfect thing about a fitted shirt is that it can be worn for any occasion, making it the perfect style for wearing to work and then hanging out with the lads at the pub after on a Friday. You can button up the front for a formal look and pair it with a stylish watch. Its completely up to with whether you want to go loud and proud with your shirt design or go simple with a classic blue dotted shirt.
