He's a soccer legend, hands-on dad and he can pull off a man-bun

It helps that David Beckham looks like a chiseled God and plays football like a freak, but his style and grooming choices elevate his already strong game to a whole new level. We look at some of Beckham’s techniques for keeping his unique style on-point.

Classics worn with attitude

Beckham, like any good male style-guru, bases his wardrobe around a key selection of classics. Items like well-fitting jeans, timeless trench-coats and basic tees form the basis for his wardrobe, which he peppers with touches of attitude. Look for those elements in his outfits. Even when he’s dressing like an English gent in a three piece suit, he’ll punk up his outfit with some crisp white sneakers or a popped collar.

Utility doesn’t have to mean dirty

When Beckham hits the road on his motorcycle, he favours the style of early pop-culture icons like James Dean over the Easy Rider, biker look. Crisp white tees, raw denim selvedge jeans and a fitted waxed or leather jacket make him look rugged, but still dapper. He has a great eye for boots.

Hair can be a statement

While Beckham’s clothes choices are steeped in tradition, his grooming choices have been anything but safe. Many of his hair experiments have kicked off trends (notably the man-bun). From cornrows to speed-lines and even plaits, Beckham has made some bold choices when in comes to his hair. He’s bleached it, worn a hair-band, shaved it off and worn it long. He’s not afraid of a hat either, and looks great in a beanie, a fedora and even a herringbone flat cap.

Keep it trim

Even though he likes to mix it up when it comes to his hair, Becks knows that his strength lies in his chiseled jaw and cheekbones, so he doesn’t cover his face up with an unruly beard. A close-trimmed stubble remains one of the most constant features of Beckham’s personal style.

Know your colours
Becks knows the colours that work for him and sticks to his guns. He rarely wears black suits, often opting for navy and indigo, but he almost always wears black jeans and brown boots. He loves denim shirts with white tees, and isn’t afraid to inject colour in the shape of bold checks when he feels like spicing things up a bit.
