Emily Ratajkowski Wore Granny Panties and Sneakers to Her Birthday Dinner in NYC

It's pretty much a known fact that Emily Ratajkowski can pull off anything. But every time she steps out wearing yet another polarizing fashion item (see: biker shorts), it somehow has us just as fascinated as the last time. So what could more polarizing than biker shorts? Granny panties, as it turns out. The model-turned-actress wore a pair of the high-waisted briefs underneath to celebrate her 27th birthday at a dinner with her closest friends in NYC.

We thought that we'd buried the briefs away for good after living through the early aughts (remember when a purposefully visible thong was a thing?). But perhaps unsurprisingly, EmRata makes a stylish case for them. She wore them underneath a sheer black-and-gold jumpsuit that alone would have been buzzworthy and finished off the look with Nike Cortez sneakers—yes, sneakers. BRB, we're still trying to figure out how she made the whole thing look so good.

Way too much fun. Thank you all for the bday wishes!

Unexpectedly-cool fashion items have been on the rise recently, which has us thinking that this EmRata moment could be the catalyst for yet another trend to emerge. After all, what are you actually supposed to wear underneath a naked dress? She might be onto something with her full-coverage briefs. Curious to test out her styling trick? Just below, shop the sheer pieces we'd gladly wear over EmRata's briefs.
