When it comes to analysing the looks of some of the world’s most photographed women such as Chrissy Teigen, a style formula quickly becomes apparent. Not to say that Teigen is in any way predictable, but John Legend’s other half has amassed a solid backbone of wardrobe staples that have simply become part of her signature look.
Take the heavily ripped, skinny, stonewash jeans, which her coltish legs were made for, and which the New Yorker loves to pair with only the highest and strappiest of sandals. She must own dozens, and she regularly teams them with cropped or strappy tops overlaid with another wardrobe faithful: the silky kimono jacket. The mother of one knows there’s nothing simpler to pull a look together than a style in a luxe fabric, with bonus points for a rich, jewel-like colourway.
What else does the glamorous 31-year-old invest in? Well, we think she’d be lost without an over-the-knee boot, which she pulls off with aplomb whether in Los Angeles or at the airport (Teigen gives great runway style), opting for suede styles to create contrast against silky minidresses.
No matter if it’s day or night, Teigen also loves a split skirt, suggesting that you don’t have to wait for an invite to somewhere special to inject your get up with a little seductive twist. Scroll through the gallery below to view some of Chrissy Teigen’s best off-duty looks.
