For years, we’ve believed that lampshades belonged on the nightstand in a cosy nook beside your bed.Come 2016, that all changed when the lampshade took a new form and found its way into our closets. Popularly known as the lampshading fashion trend.
Simply put, lampshading is wearing a pair of over-the-knee boots with a broad hemline that hits above or right at the top of the shoes. The Kardashian-Jenner ladies are the most frequent committers of this new trend, pairing their tall boots with sweatshirt dresses and oversize sweaters. But Kate Moss is also a fan, and the trend technically first appeared on the F/W 15 runways, when French brand Vetements sent a runway down the catwalk in the look.
While attempting to trace the origins of this dressing phenomenon can get a bit nebulous (especially when one considers the miniskirts and sweater dresses worn with tall suede boots circa the 1960s or early 1970s), one thing is certain: the trend is dominating the newsfeeds of many a young Hollywood starlet.
