Irina Shayk Wore $2,000 Worth of Burberry With This $20 Trend
If you've ever fantasized about the outfit you'd like to be wearing when you run into an ex and then had the scenario play out in real life, you'll know that fate rarely allows those imagined sundress-and-basket-toting ensembles their due time to shine. One way to avoid the dreaded greasy-hair-laundry-day look that more frequently features in these collisions is to plan the encounter in advance, and show up in $2,000 worth of Burberry. Or, at least, that's what Irina Shayk did.
On a recent visit to ex Bradley Cooper's New York City apartment, Shayk wore a Burberry men's shirt in the brand's iconic large-scare check that retails for $390, which she conspicuously paired with a pair of Burberry logo socks, retailing at $95. Atop, she slung a Burberry quilted leather bag across her torso like a $1,490 sash. Her $1,975 tribute to the brand (for which she has previously walked runways and starred in campaigns), was starkly offset by a totally accessible and affordable trend: black bike shorts.
Her stretchy, mid-thigh Intimissimi shorts have become a uniform to many under quarantine and, unlike the other elements of her designer revenge outfit, can be bought for as little as $22. The trend becomes more relevant daily, as we speed towards summer and bundled-up sweatpants lose some of their initial appeal. Essentially cropped leggings, bike shorts are one of the at-home lounge staples that work just as well out and about. As stay-at-home orders lift in parts of the country and our daily dog walks and grocery runs heat up (and perhaps some among us plan our fantasy run-ins with exes), these comfortable, quasi-athletic bottoms might be the biggest trend of the season.
