Style Notes: Irina Shayk layers two coats to make one unexpected new style
A regular among the stylish crowd at Paris Fashion Week, Irina Shayk consistently makes best-dressed lists – and part of the appeal is that she's not afraid to bend the sartorial rules. The model stepped out on the streets of the French capital yesterday wearing not just one classic coat, but two: a beige trench coat layered underneath an oversized leather jacket.
Layering outerwear is nothing new, of course, but typically one might expect the jacket to go underneath the coat, rather than the other way round. The effect is unexpectedly chic, creating a new silhouette that we're sure will quickly be emulated.
The beauty of the look is that her pieces – her leather jacket is part of H&M Studio's spring/summer 2023 collection, available to shop now – are just as stylish on their own as they are together, making them worthwhile investments individually.
Here's why we love her look and how to recreate it yourself.
Shayk layered an oversized, distressed-looking leather jacket over a classic camel trench, worn with black denim shorts and a turtleneck. The model added a sophisticated edge to her ensemble with sleek up-do, hoop earrings and pointed black boots.
Why it works
We love Shayk's unexpected take on trans-seasonal dressing, and how she's taken to wardrobe stapes and created something entirely new – simply through styling. Dressing for those weeks between winter and spring can be tricky, but thanks to the model we now have inspiration for a new way of layering. The best part? You'll likely have similar pieces in your own wardrobe already to recreate the look.
Why it's a forever classic
We all know the staying power of the trench, famed for its timelessness, versatility and wearability. It looks just as good when worn with casual denim jeans and a white t-shirt at the weekends or over your favourite summer dress. The same rule applies to Shayk's oversized leather jacket; it will never date. The two pieces are great additions to any capsule wardrobe and are well worth the investment, as they don't adhere to passing trends. Extra points for teaming the two together.
Where to shop it
Shayk's H&M Studio jacket is available online and in-store now, but is likely to sell out fast. If you've missed out, or are looking for a luxury version, we love the below offerings just as much.
