Fall Trend Alert: ‘Lampshading’

By Megan Stapleton

‘Lampshading’ sounds like a decor you would pick out for your house, but it’s actually a hot trend right now. It’s the pairing of thigh high boots with an oversized sweater or a loose dress- that creates a lampshade similar to a silhouette.

The fabric on top helps tone down the sexiness on the bottom, and it can be played off as ‘casual-chic’ vibe. Take any thigh-high boots and pair it with an oversized t-shirt or warm sweater to get ready this fall.
