Let's Make It Happen: The Pantless Look!
Perfect this trend like a true fashion killer!
It’s no surprise that we’ve gone completely pantless since the beginning of the quarantine. We have temporarily ditched our trousers and denim into our bottom drawers after going for loungewear pieces that almost feel non-existent when worn. It’s as if we predicted that all of this will happen and we have been gearing towards this momentous time for pantless dressing.
One of the tastemakers of this trend has got to be Kendall Jenner when she sported the then viral Yeezus Tour sweater in 2015. Fashion critics, influencers, and brands took this trend by storm as they deliberately made the pantless look happen. Variations of this look flooded Instagram as celebrities and fashionistas took the streets, fashion week, and various fashion campaigns with nothing but a shirt, sweater, or an oversized jacket on. The pantless look definitely boomed after the release of the Yeezy Season 6 campaign that featured the see-now-buy-now paparazzi proposition. Kim and Kanye’s genius gave the biker shorts its much needed reincarnation, the then hideous sports essential is now a coveted money-making fashion piece. Calling this Yeezy campaign internet-breaking is an understatement after it broke so many banks and like buttons when it was at the pinnacle of our feeds in late 2017.
After spending years under our style radar, the pantless look has fully evolved into its sartorial version. Over-sized blazers dominated the runway shows of Balenciaga, Off-White, and Jacquemus. In no time, the pantless look was seemingly trademarked by Bella Hadid as she causes a constant uproar in her street style with variations of oversized blazers, slouchy knit sweaters, and pantless athleisure looks. With that I think we can officially conclude that we’ve all gone obsessed and the pantless phenomena is showing no signs of stopping soon.
To make sure you get this right, here’s how you can champion pantless dressing like Heart Evangelista, Daryl Chang, Bea Marin and the aforementioned fashion trailblazers. We give you three pantless looks to recreate for your Zoom meetings and if you want to step outside with the illusion of just wearing a button-down on. Find out what to wear under your oversized blazer or button-down! Browse through the pieces you will need for each look and click the Shop button if you already made up your mind.
The secret to a swoon worthy pantless look is a loosely-fitted and sprightly-colored blazer. If you want to stand out in your Zoom meetings or re-catch your lover's eye, opt for a neon-hued blazer from Jacquemus or a cheerful yellow from Deliver Deliver Daily. For your inner-wear, make use of a comfortable loungewear set you already own or better yet, this silky number from Carlene Designs. Add statement gold hoop earrings and slip into your sultry Primadonna heels to complete the look.
Brave the grocery store with this button-down look. Don't fret because we have the perfect "invisible" bottoms for this! Easily slip into the black unitards from Wear Sandy Cheeks and choose between the staple Zara button-down or the striking Balenciaga poplin shirt. If the biker shorts made it at the top of our style board, we predict that in no time, these unitards will make a glorious comeback too. Lightly cinch your top with the functional belt bag from Herschel and get ready to stride in your Nikes.
Make room for sweaters or vests because we're hitting the jackpot with this look! Layer up with the oversized button-down from Joseph and a larger than life sweater from MSGM or a houndstooth vest from Gucci for the upcoming rainy days. Wear this pantless look during the weekend for non-stop binge-watching and who knows, maybe countless of Instagram stories too. Don't forget to include the ultra trendy platform sandals from Andante on your posts and did we mention you can actually go pantless or opt to wear the ultra the stylish boxers from High Rack?
