It is a story as old as time. A celebrity runs errands in a cutting-edge outfit and has an “unexpected” run-in with the paparazzi. Pictures of the groundbreaking outfit are going viral on the internet and the fashion community is debating whether the look will become a trend. A few influencers copy the look, post on Instagram and voilà, everyone else starts getting on board. In this case, the celebrity in question is Kendall Jenner and the cutting edge trend is wearing sheer tights with a bodysuit. The catch? You don’t put a skirt, dress or even shorts over the tights – your nylon-clad legs are the protagonist. To some, the sheer tights trend may seem intimidating, but any trend that involves wearing no pants is, in my opinion, pure genius.
You’re probably wondering how anyone can realistically pull off this look for going out in public. The formula, presented by Kendall Jenner, is actually quite simple. Choose a long-sleeved body (I love the ones with a polo shirt), and a pair of black heels, add a sweater or an oversized jacket on top and strategically choose a pair of tights.
The tights you choose for this look will make or break the trend. A sheer pair is preferred but you can always opt for fishnet, patterned or opaque options instead. The important part is that the tights don’t have the visible shorts seam – you want them to stay sheer all the way up the leg and not be prone to tearing.
To achieve this trend, I recommend buying tights from the sustainable brand Hēdoïne. The tights are made of biodegradable material and are step resistant (so they don’t tear and you don’t have to buy new pairs often). Designed with a high-waisted fit, the tights are both seamless and gusset-free – two important factors in achieving the chic ‘no pants’ look.
Keep scrolling for the best types for the trend, if you’re brave enough to give it a try.
The biodegradable | 50 Denier
If you’re going to buy a pair of tights, do it like this semi-transparent biodegradable pair. The shaped waistband will make you feel lifted and the seamless design will make your legs look longer.
The bold | 100 Denier
For an opaque look, choose The Bold tights. This pair will provide more coverage (and a bit more warmth) than a pair of sheer tights and will also work under any skirts or dresses you plan to wear this winter.
TheDrama | Fishnet tights Black
Adding drama? Sign me up! If you already want to take the trend to a new level, exchange for a pair fishing net. This pair comes in black, pink and white color options.
Naked | Spicy Praline
Take the no-pants look a step further and try the look with nude tights. This pair comes in five different color options for nude skin tones.
The tame | Bio black knee breeches
knee heights is also having a moment in the trend sphere. This pair would look great with a mini skirt and black loafers.
