One of the biggest reasons why your style icons, like David Beckham, remain relevant is they never quit, there is always effort given into their looks. Grooming is a given, but staying in style wherever he goes is always a noteworthy outfit. The most recent snapshot of Becks was his travel gear at the airport. As you probably already know, the best way to look and feel for any kind of flight is to remain comfortable. Keep things simple, fitted and easy.
Take one look at Beckham’s latest highlighted outfit and you’re probably thinking he’s possibly wearing overpriced items. Perhaps, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to fork over your entire paycheque. It’s more than affordable. On the contrary, the same look can be obtained with what we’ve been given in our very own city.
It’s all about the all-black fitted wear for Beckham at the airport. He’s got his black shades, black jumper, black sweats, combined with light-grey and white sneakers. Fresh as the prince of Bel Air, the military hat and large backpack throw in some serious contrast. This is basically looking cool as hell and making it look effortless. Yes, sprezzatura can be found in the most casual setting too. Remember that word?
A solid black jumper (or sweater) can easily be found at Urban Truth. Relax, you’re never too old or uncool to take a visit to your nearest UT outlet to pick up a basic sweater. Breathe a bit, that’s what this look is all about. And at this particular time of the month, the night air is still pretty breezy with coolness creeping in from time to time. Made out of cotton, this shouldn’t be too difficult to put on.
Sweatpants have become ridiculously common and almost has its place in the year-round staples for your wardrobe. The truth is sweats have now taken on a more focused and fitted design. It’s no longer restricted for gym use only. It’s been given such a sophisticated makeover that you’ll actually be able to wear certain quality sweats with a blazer. Solid black sweats can also be found at Noir.
The important thing about the look is the sharp contrast wrapped around Beckham’s feet. When it comes down to it, it really doesn’t matter what brand you’re wearing. It’s all about finding the right pair with a similar design he’s sporting. The texture is also very apparent, as the soles are solid white, while the rest is a brilliant splash of shades of grey and off-white or cream. Do make sure these are low-top sneakers and it isn’t carrying too much bulk. You want to make them look very light on your feet. The all-black look already does a good job of adding weight to the overall look.
Down to earth
One of the key characteristics to make things look effortless is have an attractive or welcoming personality. And what better way to express that than to add some earthy tones to your all-black mysterious look. Beckham chose the military style cap and an earthy-coloured backpack to the outfit. That cap isn’t a necessary addition, unless you’ve got male-patterned baldness you wish to hide from the world, which no one would blame you for. It’s quite the common trait in some men. The backpack, however, is something worthwhile. You can easily choose to stick to the black palette; these bags can be found in stores like Noir. But to shake things up a bit and stay grounded, try and find backpacks in earthy tones for your belongings.
The black shades sum up the entire look. You not only want to look cool, but keep the mysterious aura going by hiding your expressions behind some solid black sunglasses. You want to look suave but at the same time inaccessible. In other words, no time for small talk. Just a nod and a smile will do. You simply have more important things to think about, such as the inflight entertainment or actually getting some shuteye.
