I'm always drawn to the idea of shopping my closet to create fresh looks that utilize pieces I already own. There is definitely something to be said for styling great staples in new, directional ways that make them feel anything but basic. This dressing mentality can be applied to one of the latest trends we're seeing everywhere on the runways, as well as in the wardrobes of celebs and the fashion set: sheer tights. The winter hosiery has come back in a major back this season, albeit with some new styling tweaks.

Thanks in part to brands including Bottega Veneta, pants-less looks have taken off—including an exact look from the brand's S/S 23 runway pairing a navy sweater with sheer black tights and pointed heels that Kendall Jenner was spotted wearing recently. If you aren't ready to take on this daring way of styling the trend, look to insiders who are wearing them with everything from miniskirts to elegant faux-fur coats. Ahead, see how to style the sheer tights trend and shop pieces inspired by the looks.

Already one of the most talked-about runway looks from the S/S 23 collections, Bottega Veneta is making a case for "zero pants" outfits—a look that is already becoming hotly debated on TikTok.

Victoria Beckham also made a case for pants-free outfits. The designer's version includes patterned tights paired with a bra top and tailored blazer.

Not ready to skip the pants? Instead, bring back the bubble skirt as Khaite endorsed many times over for spring 2023.

There are many degrees of sheer tights and Hailey Bieber opted for the barely there at all variety, worn with a micro minidress and a faux fur coat.

On Kendall Jenner: Bottega Veneta sweater and Sardine Bag ($4200); Saint Laurent Pulp Pumps ($845); Calzedonia Sheer Tights ($20)

Kendall Jenner put her own spin on the Bottega Veneta runway look long before it went to market, proving that yes, pants are perhaps optional in 2023.

Just add sleek knee-high boots and a vintage-inspired faux-fur coat for a sophisticated winter outfit where sheer tights add some extra texture and dimension.
