Looking good is easy when cash is no object, right? Well, if you search hard enough, you'll see that superstar athletes look best when they rely on the classics, which you can buy at any price.

Looking good is easy when cash is no object, right? Well, if you search hard enough, you'll see that superstar athletes look best when they rely on the classics, which you can buy at any price. Load your closet with traditional pieces, and not only will your threads always be fashionable, but you'll also have tons of options to mix and match, so you can make the most of your wardrobe. Take a look at what Becks, Reggie and Kobe are sporting and how their pieces overlap.

A V-neck cardigan, white button-down, and black pants and dress shoes are as traditional as you can get. However, Becks keeps the look modern by wearing everything in a slim cut, and his confidence adds the perfect accessory. Don't be afraid to imitate David's style or swagger.

Wear it: When meeting coaches; on game day; in the spotlight

Adaptation: Add the black tie Kobe's rockin', and you're good for any situation that has you front and center

Cardigans work anywhere, from David's jaunt down the tunnel to pre-game interviews to the red carpet Reggie's working. The RB took the look down a few notches by wearing his sweater with a T and denim. By keeping it all dark and adding the right accessories, he maintains a timeless look.

Wear it: To school; on campus tours; heading out with friends

Adaptation: If Reggie simply swapped out Becks' pants and shoes for his denim and sneakers, the look would've worked for meeting coaches.

Replace the futboler's cardigan with a grey sports coat, top your outfit with a tie and head out to grab the awards you worked all season to earn. The sunglasses are a good extra, but take'em off when you get inside.

Wear it: When your on-field feats have scored you off-field attention

Adaptation: Lose the tie and throw on jeans, and you'll be sporting solid gear to meet coaches. You can wear the denim with the white button-down to school, keep the blazer in your locker and grab it when you've got an important in-school meeting with a college coach.
