KIM KARDASHIAN PART 1
Kim Kardashian is truly the 21st century patron saint of pantsless-ness, spending all summer in variations of this shirt-and-boots look.

The reality star even gave the style a couture makeover at the Balenciaga fashion show, pairing the brand’s grid-print boots with a partially open trench coat and nothing else.
While her whole family loves the “lampshading” look (for the unintiated, that’s the way the cool kids say “pants free”), Kendall has really pushed it to its limits, showing off a whole lot of leg in shirts that are barely long enough to cover anything at all.
Kylie is nothing if not inventive when it comes to ways to show off her underwear, even when pants are tangentially involved.

And let us never forget that time she dabbled in chaps, the ultimate way to wear pants without actually wearing any pants.
A sheer camo bodysuit and a whole lot of blonde hair extensions are always a classic replacement for an actual outfit.
Kourtney has also managed to perfect the art of lampshading while promoting the family business, wearing almost exclusively merch from Kanye West’s tour with her assortment of thigh-high boots.

In fact, the Kardashians love Yeezy and pantslessness so much, even their kids are doing it.
The OG supermodel kept her leg-baring look chic and sophisticated, layering a sheer lacy dress over a black bra and underwear set.
Can’t pick the right outfit for the red carpet? Just ditch your bottoms! All you really need is a festive blouse that can graze the top of your tallest boots and you’re good to go.
This may be a performance outfit, but it’s not so far off from the leggy looks the pop star has been wearing out lately, pairing a bodysuit with an oversized jacket and patent leather thigh-highs.
This model off-duty gave her lack of slacks a dressed down vibe by pairing her moth-eaten sweater with a matching pair of kicks.
For those who say lampshading is not a winter-appropriate look, Rihanna and her giant pink puffer beg to disagree.
Wearing a sheer diamante jumpsuit is certainly one way to spice up your standard grey bikini.
Much like her sister, Bella favors the sheer sparkly pant layered over opaque underwear look, ringing in 2017 in a silver ensemble that gives only the illusion of full coverage.
Lest we forget, ditching your bottoms is by no means a new millennial trend; ladies have been rocking this look since at least Studio 54. And we would be remiss if we didn’t credit queen Kate for pioneering this very 2016 trend all the way back in 1993.
