Irina Shayk Gives the Little Black Dress a Silky Twist With the Edgiest Thigh-High Boots

Irina Shayk broke out two of this season’s biggest trends as she continued her bold trip around Ibiza, Spain.

The supermodel shared her edgy style on Instagram last night, breaking out a silky black slip dress for a night on the town.

Slip dresses, like low-rise jeans and bandana tops, are making their triumphant return from the late 1990s and early aughts; the effortlessly chic silhouette is favorited this year already by Rihanna, Kendall Jenner and more top stars and used to be a go-to pick for Longoria herself both on and off set back in the day.

On her feet, the model broke out a set of thigh-high leather boots from Burberry featuring a slouchy fit with slick uppers and cutout handles across the shaft. Set atop a 4.25-inch block heel, the brand’s Alto silhouette retails for an impressive $2,590 at Nordstrom.

Knee-high and thigh-high boots are the must-have boot silhouettes this season. From leather twists on the trend to edgy lace-up styles, you can find the taller shoes on everyone from Ciara to Lily Collins and Gwen Stefani amongst other major names. In colder temperatures, the silhouettes offer coverage to counter skirts, dresses and shorts as well as provides an extra layer to any leggings or jeans look.

Vacationing on the Spanish island earlier this week, the model also went bigger and bolder than ever by the pool in a neon green bikini complete with high-hip bottoms. The real kicker of the outfit, though, came with Shayk’s unconventional choice of footwear from the British luxury house.

As for Irina Shayk herself, the bold look this week is just one of the many on-trend combinations that she stays on top of with her off-duty and in-show style. Throughout her career, the top model has served as the face of campaigns and runways for major fashion powerhouses like Moschino, Versace and more. When she isn’t working, her go-to footwear brands include everything from Dr. Martens, of course, and Nike to Amina Muaddi and Stuart Weitzman.
