Jenner didn't have to wear pants to look pulled together in this oversize Blaze Milano blazer in February 2019. The buttery leather outerwear plus gloves and heels made this outfit feel posh and sophisticated.

Hailey Bieber

The model wore a MM6 Maison Margiela tee with her Jacquemus pantalon boots while running errands around L.A. in September 2019. Luckily, you can still shop both items to get her west coast look.

Candice Swanepoel

Celebrities in show-stopping gowns at the Venice Film Festival are a given, so when Swanepoel decided to be a little more low-key and wear just a button-up shirt with a belt and heels, she definitely stood out. The model showed off her statuesque frame without the hassle of pants.

Shay Mitchell

The actress wore a minidress so short, it could have been mistaken for a top in March 2019. She compensated for the shortness, however, with a (slightly) longer matching embellished blazer.

Lady Gaga

The singer looked like she was on her way to chill out and eat pizza in a T-shirt sans pants in June 2019. We fully support this comfortable look.

Emrata was spotted in the LES of NYC in July 2019 wearing a button-up shirt and dad sneakers. The star was almost unrecognizable thanks to her laidback attire and sunglasses.

Blake Lively

Lively braved NYC's wintertime chills without pants in this Monse ensemble while leaving Feinstein's/54 Below in January 2019. The actress actually glowed, whereas we would have been shivering and pale with discomfort.

Hailey Bieber and Joan Smalls

Smalls showed up to a birthday party on April 2018 in nothing but a red jacket and tights (catsuit?) that revealed her undergarments. She wore a pair of thigh-high lace-up boots to make this ensemble party-ready. Meanwhile, Bieber is maybe wearing a minidress under that oversize jacket? Could be a shirt. Either way, no pants!

Kylie Jenner

Almost all the Kardashian-Jenners have tried the no-pants look, including youngest sister Kylie Jenner. The star was seen in NYC in February 2016 in a suede jacket dress and knee-high brown boots. (We're guessing winter puffers aren't really a thing for celebs coming in from the west coast.)

Kourtney Kardashian

The 5'1" reality star pulled off this plum-colored velour hoodie as a dress while out in Los Angeles in February 2017. Try this look yourself, maybe with boots, the next time you don't know what to wear.

Rita Ora

The singer made a fashion statement in July 2016 when she wore a long-sleeve Vetements shirt that said "May the Bridges I Burn Light the Way." The length went down almost to her knees, so Ora didn't need pants. Win-win!
