Top 10 Best Dressed Athletes

All athletes look great on the court, clad in their team jersey or sports wear, doing what they do best. However, as is evident from pictures captured during post-game interviews or even while athletes are simply leaving the stadium, it’s apparent that some athletes look much more stylish in their off time than others. Athletes often make multi-million dollar salaries and can easily afford any luxury they desire. While some may go after sports cars and expensive homes, many athletes funnel their salaries into designer clothing. And why not? They work incredibly hard to stay in peak condition and it would be a shame to hide their physique under ill fitting suits and baggy t-shirts.

Athletes also offer brands a unique opportunity – coiffed, in shape, gleaming with health, they’re the perfect opportunity to incorporate celebrities and non-models into a company’s brand. Many stylish athletes have had opportunities to be the face of a designer brand and have participated in iconic advertisements. Even the covers of the most prestigious fashion magazines, a territory generally ruled models or A-list celebrities only, have pictured stylish athletes. Additionally, athletes are also frequently given the opportunity to dabble in the fashion world themselves, as they create everything from small collections (designer sneakers, backpacks) for larger brands to entirely new brands of their own.

They’re given coveted tickets to the most exclusive fashion events. They show up on red carpets looking impeccable. They most certainly know how to make it work. From hanging courtside in Chanel to grabbing coffee in Givenchy, the following ten athletes have style that is consistently on point. While their styles vary, they have all unquestionably earned the designation of best dressed.

Beckham was the soccer world’s sweetheart for the duration of his athletic career, but his sense of style has led the fashion world to claim him as one of their own as well. Perhaps almost single-handedly responsible for introducing the word metrosexual to the public, Beckham has had as many looks as he has goals. Long blonde hair, faux hawk, crew cut. Slim cut suits, perfectly worn t-shirts and jeans, tweed sportcoats, hipster glasses. He’s worn everything, and despite the diversity of his sartorial choices, always manages to pull them off. Of course, having the fashionable Victoria Beckham by his side probably doesn’t hurt when it’s time to get dressed for an event. He’s done advertising campaigns for H&M, Belstaff, and several of his own fragrances. Only a confident man would be able to bend the style rules as Beckham has.
