When the no-trouser trend appeared on the runway in September, I knew right away that it would be controversial and, therefore, a huge hit in fashion. Moreover, when brands such as Victoria Beckham, Bottega Veneta, and Khaite are the ones responsible, you know a trend has legs—pun intended. With none other than Kendall Jenner having just debuted the buzzed-about look that started it all, it appears my predictions were spot-on.
Seen in L.A. between shoots for the luxury retailer Fwrd, where she's creative director, Jenner wore a chunky navy-blue sweater with black briefs and heels—no trousers in sight. The bottomless ensemble came practically straight off Matthieu Blazy's Bottega Veneta S/S 23 runway, besides the heels which are Saint Laurent, her tights, which came from Calzedonia, and her giant bouquet of sunflowers, which presumably came from the farmers market.
Though entirely impractical for a busy day of errands and shoots, Jenner managed to make wearing underwear with nothing but tights work. More than that, she made me and everyone I know want to do the same (see my Instagram DMs after I shared this photo for proof). Also proving that the look could be spun for evening too, Kendall made a quick change into a Commando turtleneck and briefs for a dinner look that makes more of a statement than the tried and tested LBD.
So, if you like me, are even more on board with the trouser-less trend after seeing it off the runway, keep scrolling shop the look below.
