Kendall Jenner Wore Underwear With Nothing But Tights for a Busy Day Out in L.A.

When the no-trouser trend appeared on the runway in September, I knew right away that it would be controversial and, therefore, a huge hit in fashion. Moreover, when brands such as Victoria Beckham, Bottega Veneta, and Khaite are the ones responsible, you know a trend has legs—pun intended. With none other than Kendall Jenner having just debuted the buzzed-about look that started it all, it appears my predictions were spot-on. 

Seen in L.A. between shoots for the luxury retailer Fwrd, where she's creative director, Jenner wore a chunky navy-blue sweater with black briefs and heels—no trousers in sight. The bottomless ensemble came practically straight off Matthieu Blazy's Bottega Veneta S/S 23 runway, besides the heels which are Saint Laurent, her tights, which came from Calzedonia, and her giant bouquet of sunflowers, which presumably came from the farmers market.

On Kendall Jenner: Bottega Veneta Orecchini Earrings (£362), Sardine Intrecciato Napa Top-Handle Bag (£2930), and sweater; Calzedonia 20 Denier Essential Invisible Tights (£18); Saint Laurent Kendall 90 Silk-Satin Slingback Pumps (£600)

Though entirely impractical for a busy day of errands and shoots, Jenner managed to make wearing underwear with nothing but tights work. More than that, she made me and everyone I know want to do the same (see my Instagram DMs after I shared this photo for proof). Also proving that the look could be spun for evening too, Kendall made a quick change into a Commando turtleneck and briefs for a dinner look that makes more of a statement than the tried and tested LBD.
