Dua Lipa Masters the Pantsless Trend

The pantsless trend is here to stay—rain or shine.

Dua Lipa pulled off the trend for a rainy day in London on Thursday, wearing a head-to-toe look from Ferragamo’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection, including a black zip-up jacket with a mock turtleneck over a black pair of bodycon micro shorts. She continued the black theme with the bottom half of her outfit, including seasonally appropriate sheer tights, leather knee-high boots with a funky curved heel and pointed toe, and a black leather tote bag fresh off of Prada’s Fall 2024 ready-to-wear runway.

But what really pulled the look together was the unexpected pop of color from her outerwear: a bright grassy-green leather trench coat, which stood out in perfect complementary contrast to her cherry-cola red hair.

Lipa has been in her no-pants era for quite some time now.

In February, she shared photos of herself to Instagram dressed in a cropped green jacket and shiny black leggings, capping it off with a pair of Coperni’s star-shaped slingback heels. And in January, Lipa performed her single “Houdini” in a black graphic T-shirt and leather hot pants trimmed with ruffles.

“I like having one piece that makes a whole outfit and then you can wear everything else that’s quite simple,” the singer said of her style in a 2017 interview with Harper’s Bazaar. “I’ve always loved dressing up. I like it when things look like you’ve just thrown them on and sometimes the things you really do just throw on look the best. I’ve always been inspired by the ’90s, and I like wearing baggy trousers, and blazers with slipdresses and thigh-high boots or leather jackets, and just a mixture of all those together.”

As an associate editor at HarpersBAZAAR.com, Chelsey keeps a finger on the pulse on all things celeb news. She also writes on social movements, connecting with activists leading the fight on workers’ rights, climate justice, and more. Offline, she’s probably spending too much time on TikTok, rewatching Emma (the 2020 version, of course), or buying yet another corset.
