David Beckham is good at many things. Most of his talents however, even football, pale in comparison to the man’s skill with a colour palette. As a captain of an all-navy look, the 42-year-old once again proves the merits of the easiest colour scheme in the book.

While attending his wife’s latest show in New York (level 10 husband points), Beckham cut a classic figure in a combination of navy tailored separates. The blazer directly chimed with the sweater – a razor-sharp way to dress down the suit – with an equal match in the trousers below.

The secret here is of a tonal nature. By colour matching better than any Dulux customer service assistant, the entire look packs statement using a single shade, resulting in a look that’s as simple as it is effective.

Of course, we’re still not completely sold on the Kurt Cobain locks, but once again, David Beckham proves that even when he’s barely trying, he knows how to look good.
