What Is 'Lampshading'? Everything You Need To Know About The New Trend

Our friends at Popsugar and The Skimm have recently pointed out that “lampshading”–or wearing an oversize top so that it looks like you’re not wearing any pants–has actually become a style trend as of late. The Kardashian/Jenners love it–Kourtney has worn the look twice recently, once with a Yeezus sweatshirt and both times with sexy thigh-high boots, while her baby sis Kylie Jenner also tried it, and captioned her look “Can’t Buy Style.” Point Kylie!

Ariana Grande, Rihanna, Zendaya and Hailey Baldwin are also fans of the look, which doesn’t have to be worn with tall boots (Rihanna rocked hers with Timbs and Hailey’s was with sneakers).

So, will you try “lampshading”?
