No Joke, Underwear-as-Pants Is Taking Over Hollywood RN—4 Celebs Perfecting It

Celebrities are notorious for taking risks with fashion. Events such as the Met Gala or the VMAs offer the perfect excuse to test-drive an adventurous look, but lately, I've been noticing celebrities wearing one particularly daring trend with no red carpet in sight. Yep, I'm talking about the underwear-as-pants look. Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Tessa Thompson, and Bella Hadid have all experimented with the trend and generated plenty of headlines while doing so. 

All four women have taken different approaches to styling the trend. Tessa Thompson, for instance, wore an oversize Loewe sweater with a trench coat, while Bella Hadid went casual in underwear and Ugg boots. Meanwhile, the sisters Jenner both added tights to their underwear-as-outerwear looks, with Kendall also opting for a gray wool coat. Scroll down to see how celebrities are wearing the controversial look.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
