When it comes to vanity, soccer players beat all other athletes. After all, they are celebrities, so they have to maintain their image to make sure they attract an international audience. Many of these players have developed model-grade physiques that allows clothes to frame their body with perfection. When Giorgio Armani said that “footballers are today’s new style leaders,” he obviously made that comment in the UK, since they call soccer football there.
David Beckham comes to mind immediately when you join the thought of soccer and style, but there are plenty more fashion forward athletes who deserve recognition. These seven soccer players stand out as being the most stylish and fashion savvy off the soccer field.

Wearing two hats as a soccer player and rock star. He possessed an intrinsic sense of style and would become one of the biggest fashion icons of the 60’s, as mentioned in this post of Titanbet (make sure to check out their Betting Tips page). Sadly, he passed away in 2005 at the age of 59.

Hidetoshi Nakata

Native of Japan, Nakatas’ impeccable style, robust with sophistication and class, has yet to be matched. He was often spotted as a spectator at fashion shows in Rome, Bologna, Florence and Perugia. He is now editor-at-large at Monocle, a design and style magazine that promotes any and every thing from companies like Soho

This Italian stud was desperately sought after by Giorgio Armani after the 1998 World cup when Maldini kitted the Azzurri. Although he declined the offer, he is still considered to run neck and neck with David Beckham.

Cristiano Ronaldo

With just the slimmest lag behind Lionel Messi as best soccer player, Ronaldo’s style is best described as extravagant. Apparently, this Portuguese celebrity puts in just as much effort into his appearance as he does his game, as he has won the World Cups in 2006, 2010, and 2014.

Pep Guardiola

Impressive as he is, this Spain and Barcelona legend has stamped his signature look-form fitting suits, carves, ties and sweaters. His style is summed up in one word: Magnificent.
