I remember reading in a newspaper once, that he played an entire football game with a cracked heel, just to bring victory to his country. I imagine what a strong personality and inner force one should have to do something like that, for that he has my respect! But honestly speaking, I’m not a big fan of sports. Therefore, I am not writing about him based on his professional achievements.
Let me introduce our celebrity of the week, David Beckham. An extraordinary, extremely talented man. He’s been very active in fashion, politics, sports, culture. Women from all over the world love him for physical appearance, while men envy him for his life and profession. Not so long ago, H & M extended the contract with David Beckham for a men’s lingerie collection. Giorgio Armani chose him for the same reason a few years ago.
Men’s Health, GQ, Elle, Esquire, WSJ are just a few magazine covers where you have David smiling and seducing young ladies.
Besides all David is a dad. Since 1999 he’s been living in a happy marriage with the well-known style-icon, Victoria Beckham, educating four beautiful children. His oldest boys are already trying to “imitate” their father’s style of clothing. I think here David deserves to be admired, as a good dad is an example to follow in everything.
Honestly speaking, I used not to think of David as of a fashion icon. The reason to that might be the fact that his style is totally different from mine… But as I’ve said, “i used to”. After reviewed his wardrobe, I understood that style is effortlessly chic, which is what I like the most.
Guys, if you want to win a girl’s heart, you’ll have to put a bit of effort, and get some suggestions about the clothes you should have in your closet:
1.Classic slim-suit. I was telling you earlier about its benefits. In every man’s life there are moments when a slim suit is absolutely necessary. In such moments, rather than to look like a stain with no silhouette, you can look very stylish and attractive. A well tailored suit to women is like lace lingerie to men!!
2.Two buttoned casual blazer. For casual looks, a blazer like this is necessary for any man older than 30. It can be combined with classic pants of dark shades (black or blue) and a pair of brown shoes. If you dress like that, I guarantee that you’ll look immaculate.
P.S. On a two buttoned blazer the top button has to be closed all the time.
3.Voluminous scarf. These scarves are my weakness. I own a big collection, and can’t stop buying them every season. Scarves and snoods are a necessity in a men’s wardrobe. Besides the fact that they keep you warm , they also help you give a cool twist to a simple look. Plus there are many ways of wrapping a scarf, each time making it look different.
Here is how David wears them:
4.Kepi. I have noticed that this accessory is extremely popular amongst the British. I would not advise it to all of you, because it’s a really specific accessory, doesn’t suit everyone. Nevertheless, David manages to look incredible while wearing it.
5.Oversized beanie.Generally speaking, I think David is one of the reasons this accessory has become so popular. Nearly every look of his is finished with a cap like that.
6.Leather bomber jacket.This type of jackets is very practical. With its help you can create both casual and evening looks. The secret here is to choose the right cutting. There are some sport styled ones, which can not be worn with elegant trousers or shirts. In David’s wardrobe, you can notice the presence of two types of leather jackets: black and pale (green and beige).
7.Large fitted jeans of different shades. This kind of jeans are designed for older men, who can’t wear skinny jeans anymore, but love denim and want to use it for casual outfits. Sadly today, especially on the street, you can rarely see a man in the right large fitted jeans, because men don’t really know how to choose them. But as you may see below, David knows what’s their appropriate length, and pairs them perfectly with some white tennis shoes, therefore creating a clean and expensive look.
8.Chinos. Yes, these pants are THE trend! And since we already know that the color is also very popular this season, you should definitely get a pair! But I advise you not to choose the bright colored ones, better buy chinos in khaki or light beige. They can be easily worn with other pieces and almost every type of shoes.
9.Checked shirt.Rings a bell?? Well, no doubt, as such shirts used to be worn only by woodcutters in Michigan. They were sewn out of flannel and guys used put them on just to keep warm… Oh and washing them was not a big problem. Today, thanks to such personalities as Beckham , you can find this piece in the closet of every stylish man. Usually we keep them for “days-off”, in case a friend calls you on a Friday evening, and ask you to join him for a beer; or maybe for a Sunday picnic with your family.
Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to wear them right. Here are some suggestions for you:
1. They should never be worn buttoned up.
2. Always wear this kind of shirts opened till the middle of the chest, with a white t-shirt underneath, and the sleeves rolled up.
3. Team them up with a pair of white tennis shoes, bright blue jeans and some bracelets.
And here you go– a stylish guy!
10.Jeans shirt. What’s behind the stylish, charismatic look? Always a denim shirt with a white tee underneath.
11.Sweat hoodie. When it’s windy outside, but you’d like to go out for a walk, or you suddenly decide to do some jogging on an early morning- you can wear this kind of sweater. In other situations, do not!
12.Cardigan. A must have! Long, short, double-brested, with a zipper , with buttons, lightweight, coarse-knitted. Dark colored or bright colored. It’s just a universal must have!
13.Metal chain. Honestly, I have no idea why he wears it, and that is the only disgusting feature of his style!! Reminds me of the teenage hip-hop guys from the 80s/90s, or the later rock subcultures. 14.Coat down-to-knee length. Style, self confidence, wealth. A man who wears a well-tailored coat will always get the eyes of all the women passing by his luxurious car parked nearby.
15. Lightweight wool sweaters. Will always give your outfit a comfort and orderly look.
