David Beckham's Wardrobe Essentials: H&M S/S 15

Get your spring style sorted with five pieces picked by Becks himself

It must be difficult being David Beckham. Think about it. Not only are you rich, famous and regarded as one of the best-looking men on the planet, you also get to travel the world watching football with a spot of modelling thrown in.

Frankly, it sounds like a nightmare.

For Spring/Summer '15, Becks has reunited with H&M to select his favourite pieces from the Swedish brand's 'Modern Essentials' collection – a sort of 'director's cut' titled –wait for it - 'Modern Essentials selected by David Beckham'.

Shot by director Marc Forster (Quantum Of Solace, World War Z), the campaign displays exactly the sort of affordable style we want from a trip to the high-street, like this mid-length charcoal cotton/linen blend car coat (above, priced £39.99) which wouldn't look out of place in the pub on a Friday night or on a Sunday morning dog walk in the park.

And as things finally seem to be heating up outside, you could do a lot worse than this fitted blue cotton polo shirt with white detailing (above, priced £19.99) or the simple black linen crew-neck tee – both summer staples in any man's wardrobe (below, priced £7.99).

For smarter occasions, the linen poplin shirt is a wise choice (below, priced £14.99). Crisp, minimal and designed around strong lines, it's the perfect shirt to smarten up a casual outfit, or to throw on with your suit for that all-important meeting/game of FIFA.

And as any Brit knows, however sunny it looks outside, it's always best to have a good jumper handy. With that in mind Becks has selected the campus blue cotton sweatshirt in a classic, crew-neck design that can be pared down with jeans or smartened up under a blazer (below, priced £14.99).

Modern Essentials selected by David Beckham is available in stores and online from 5 March, hm.com
