Selena Gomez Went Pants-less in the Boldest Boot Trend of the Season

Leave it to Selena Gomez to pull off the best Risky Business outfit before it's even October. The Only Murders in the Building actress shared a mirror selfie from her hotel room, showing off her legs in a pair of statuesque over-the-knee boots and a fitted white shirtdress. 

Styled by Erin Walsh, the outfit is almost deceptively simple—just the shirt and boots, no pants—but made for excellent evening attire with the addition of some simple, everyday gold jewelry from Gomez's favorite designers. 

While the pants-less look isn't for everyone, this outfit illustrates the importance of choosing the right proportions from head to toe. A loose-fitting button-down shirt paired with just socks and sunglasses is very Tom Cruise circa 1983, but if you amp up the volume on top and cover up some leg with a stunning pair of boots, you're suddenly so 2023. 

Ahead, check out a few of our favorite white button-downs and seriously chic over-the-knee boots that can be worn to re-create Gomez's eye-catching outfit. If you want to repurpose the shirt for Halloween, it makes for a great last-minute costume too.
