We’re preeeeetty sure Shia LaBeouf is not spending Sunday nights putting together outfits for the week, and yet, the Transformers star has become one of the leading style icons of the here and now. Kanye West called him out for being a style pioneer and, according to Shia, once raided his wardrobe (a quick glance at the Yeezy collection draws instant comparisons to the actor’s low-key steez). There’s an entire Instagram account dedicated to collating his everyday looks – see: @shiasoutfits. His look has been eloquently profiled, in order to understand just what it is that makes him so seemingly ‘iconic’, by key industry players including Esquire, The Cut and The New Yorker (they suggest it’s the fact that he skirts the normcore trend, but always manages to throw in one element of so-wrong-it’s-maybe-possibly-right for good measure – pants tucked into socks, ragged denim shorts, ugg boots). Whether he’s a conscious style icon or not, Shia is doing his own thing and we’re here for it. Keep scrolling to discover our favourite unexpected fashion moments from the star…

Here he is repping pastels, and Californian outdoor brand Patagonia, in style. The mauve shorts say mid-2000s festival, but the boots say hittin’ up Yosemite later.
