You've probably worn it at home behind closed doors in the past, but now there's an actual name for it because celebrities have just recently started wearing it outside. They are calling it "lampshading" and very simply put, it's done by wearing oversized sweatshirts as if they were skirts.
Now some riske people, like Kim Kardashian, might wear it with absolutely nothing beneath, but technically you're supposed to use short shorts to create it.
Oversized sweatshirts work best for creating the lampshade effect but any oversized, billowy tops will do just as well. Put on a pair of smashing thigh-high or over-the-knee boots and you too will turn heads the way celebrities always do.
If you are wondering which celebrities are sporting this trend, they are the usual fashion-forward rockstars like Rihanna, Ariana Grande, and Zendaya; as well as the young socialites like Kylie Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian who are photographed often.
Now that summer is upon us you may want to don this effortless look because it works great in the morning before the heat of the sun, or early in the evening just before dawn. Try it after an early morning swim or at the beach when you're heading back in. Don't forget to wear those boots and a floppy hat to kick it up a notch when you're out with your BFF's. Add some tassel earrings and bracelets and you're ready to do lunch.
Have fun with it, whatever you decide to do! Fashion is what you make, or create it to be and this look is no exception, I absolutely guarantee!
