“Lampshading” is the new style trend on the block, backed by celebrities the likes of Kylie and Kendall Jenner and Kate Moss. Picture a lamp and you’ll instantly recognize the silhouette we’re talking about, where the “shade” portion is an oversized sweater that drapes over the body like a dress and the “base” portion is a killer pair of boots. Easy, right? In fact, you probably already have these pieces in your existing wardrobe, so it’s just a matter of pairing them together. With inspiration from some of Hollywood’s most stylish celebrities, you can add your own personal spin to the lampshading craze that’s sweeping the streets right now.

Save this lampshading combination for a warmer day, as it requires nothing but an oversized “rocker” tee, patent-leather ankle boots, and a hip choker necklace.
Kate Moss is always setting trends, so it makes sense that she was one of the first ones to experiment with lampshading. She achieves this cozy look with an oversized chunky sweater, low-heeled OTK boots, and her signature messy hair.
Play with proportions and textures like Hailee Steinfeld did. Her bold orange sweaterdress and over-the-knee boots look sensational when paired together, as the shapes fit closer to the body.
