The first and most important component of the David Beckham look is his hair. David’s hair is generally blonde with a sexy tousled look, which you can do on your own by putting styling gel in your hands, grabbing your hair, and sort of scooping it toward the middle to create a bit of a faux hawk. David has also been known to shave his head down to just stubble. Whichever look works best for you is what you should go with. You could also opt for a wig to try to duplicate his blonde locks.
The next thing to consider when dressing like David Beckham are his numerous tattoos. He is known for a number of tattoos including ones of his children and his wife. If you don’t feel like making that kind of commitment to imitate his look you can choose to apply temporary tattoos.
Finally, when dressing like David Beckham, go with layers! David loves to layer his clothes. Start with a pair of jeans or dress slacks that really fit your body. Add a dress shirt or t-shirt that also fit. On top of the shirt put on a vest or a sweater that coordinate with the pants and shirt. For a more formal look add a tie or an overcoat. Add a coordinating belt, a trendy pair of shoes and a cool pair of sunglasses and you’ve got the look!
