The Style Behind The Smile | David Beckham Edition
.The Style Behind The Smile | David Beckham Edition.
David Beckham is known around the world for his Fashion, Football and his Crazy Cuts.
We can all agree that whilst David’s hairstyle has changed, so has his dress sense. David however has never had a rest from the media on and off the pitch. starting his professional career in 1992, under Sir Alex Ferguson’s wing, Beckham has had a very humble and exciting career. Scoring 97 goals in 523 for club and smashing in 17 goals for England with 115 appearances shows no doubt how far and successful David has gone. Beckham has become something of a style icon, having appeared in fashion campaigns and even launching his own two lines of clothing.
There is no secret to David’s Dapperness. Since launching his David Beckham Body-wear range for H&M back in 2012 it’s established a crazy following. Customers can’t get enough of David’s relaxed sporty style and the collection has expanded into a comprehensive selection of sweatshirts, joggers, T-shirts and vests. David’s very own words were “If I wouldn’t wear it then it doesn’t go!”
Cornrows, a mohawk, a faux-hawk short and bleached hair are just a couple of many styles Beckham has had over his years. He never just stuck with the same haircut, just like his fashion, and I can feel a couple more controversial cuts and fashion styles are coming soon from Beck’s. That’s one way to rock the Beckham style and luckily for you, that’s affordable. Sorry I can’t help you marry a Spice Girl though! Another thing to understand about Beckham is that he is always prepared to go into battle. Like a Roman solider is always prepared to go into battle carrying a sword. Beckham’s Suit is his battle armour. You can never catch Beckham on an off day. Beckham can rock rainbow coloured jeans and still look good in them.
