Irina Shayk's red carpet persona is what you might expect from a Victoria's Secret model, as she tends to wear body-sculpting dresses with cutouts, thigh-high slits and occasionally Liz Hurley–style safety pins holding the dresses together. However, her off-duty style is all about elevated basics rather than anything too statement-making. She practically only wears khaki, tan, grey, navy and black and tends to lean on classic but expensive-looking pieces.
Her general styling rule is to have one piece that is a statement or a talking point (such as a Burberry checked dress or a leather belted trench coat) and to keep the rest as simple as possible. The one item that holds most of her outfits together is her combat boots. Whether she's wearing shorts, boilersuits or midi dresses, Irina is usually in her black leather lace-up ankle boots. Her accessories always remain a constant with any outfit—she always wears a pair of black classic sunglasses and fine gold hoop earrings.
