David Beckham has spent lockdown at his country pad in the Cotswolds and, according to the various family members’ Instagrams, has been keeping busy by enjoying walks in the countryside.

And the ex-footballer joked that he was on yet 'another walk' wearing 'another hat', as he posed for a snap while exploring the local surroundings on Saturday afternoon.

The 45-year-old looked typically dapper in an olive green jumper, which he teamed with a trusty flat cap and a pair of stylish corduroy trousers.

However, the eagle-eyed among you will notice that the rural-inspired outfit isn’t typical of his usual style.

Just like his fashion designer wife, Victoria Beckham, the A-lister has gone through a range of different styles throughout his career.

Revisiting all of the athlete’s best looks is no short task, but we’ve picked out just a few of the ones that chart his style evolution of the years.

So, in no particular order, here’s a trip down memory lane, David Beckham style:

First, there was the 90’s boyband look (which makes sense it was, in fact, the 90s). Note the curtains and the black trench.

Here he is at the amfAR Gala in Cannes back in 2017 giving us all the 007 vibes and proving that we should all have a super-luxe velvet tuxedo hanging in our wardrobes:

Or when he took a leaf out of Victoria’s book and attended the Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter catwalk show in 2018 showcasing bigger, baggier looks than even lady Beckham:

And it was the royal wedding of all royal weddings and when DB and VB turned out to see Prince Harry wed Meghan Markle in 2018.

And who could forget the numerous times he stepped out in perfect synchronicity with his wife.

Through all the years and all the looks, what remains constant is that Becks isn’t afraid to experiment, change it up and put his best fashion-foot forward.

We can’t wait to see what comes next.

Get the look

There’s no denying that the A-lister’s latest look suits him, but how can a mere human recreate it?

We’ve scoured the internet to find all the garments you need to help you channel country-side chic, though you’ll have to find the walking stick yourself.

The jumper

Séfr Leth Ribbed-Knit Sweater | £119 from Net-A-Porter

Just like David’s, this knitted jumper in a chunky ribbed stitch looks super cosy and warm.

In a classic straight fit, it can work worn alone or with layers underneath.

The trousers

Corduroy Cotton Trouser Pants | £27.99 from Amazon

These top-rated cords from Amazon look chic but are actually built for comfort, with a hidden extra waistband stretches up to four inches.

The hat

Semi plain wool blend flat cap | £45 from Ted Baker

Though the overall style is new, flat caps are certainly a staple in David Beckham’s wardrobe.

Over the years he’s been spotted in a variety of different versions, whether dressing up for a night out or just popping to the shops.
