Pants Are Out: Celebrities Are Seen Rocking New ‘No Pants’ Trend

No pants, no problem?

Bella Hadid, Kylie Jenner, and Hailey Bieber, among more stars and fashion influencers, seem to think so. Gen Z is ushering in a fashion trend in which no outerwear is required – just tights or underwear-like briefs. Sound risqué? These creative clothing liberties are just another way this generation is rebelling.

What is the ‘no pants’ trend?

It can mean a couple of different fashion choices but boils down to a lingerie-inspired outfit. It is not uncommon for people to wear tights as pants (remember when leggings were criticized for being worn as pants a few years back? ), men’s briefs (see: Hadid), or bodysuits as a complete outfit.

We have Fashion Week and famous models to thank for this look trickling down to regular folk. Fashion influencers like the Kardashian-Jenners, the Hadids, and Julia Fox quickly made pants-less looks into the most buzzed-about trend since Barbiecore, as designers such as Bottega, Miu Miu, and Burberry showcased differently takes on the look.

From Kim Kardashian to Taylor Swift to Tessa Thomson to Rita Ora, everyone is getting in on the “no pants” trend. The non-celebs who are adopting it skew younger, and fashion experts say it’s on-brand for this generation that has previously experimented with braless fashion.

Currently, in their mid-20s, Gen Z’s culture makers face one challenge their fashion predecessors didn’t: the frenzied, over-saturated, and competitive nature of online culture.

So what do you think? Will you be trying the ‘no pants’ trend?

    Op-Ed: Rise in Gender Fluid Clothing

    Since 2019 there has been an increase in gender-fluid clothing. This is not a specific style or trend but rather a recognition that clothing does not have to belong to one gender or another. This is a social construct that the fashion world became comfortable with, but not anymore. In 2019, 56 percent of Gen Z consumers shopped outside of their “gender area,” 41 percent of Gen Z answered neutral on the gender spectrum and over half answered something other than heterosexual. This shows that the upcoming generation is ready to break norms, customs, and standards. The fashion industry has realized that dressing is a way to express oneself, and it should be purely self-constructed. Therefore, retailers like Zara and H&M have launched genderless clothing lines. While they did receive some backlash, there will always be critics, and it is clear the trends are headed toward more fluid options for everyone.
