101 On Lamshading And Why Celebs Are Loving This Trend!

A new look on the block has been spotted and boy has it filled our insta feeds already! Lampshading: the silhouette driven look stands out when you pair thigh high boots with a long sweatshirt or an oversized shirt, skipping the pants while you are at it. The look has been named such because the top half mirrors a lampshade with its wide hem and the thigh high boots filling in as the lamp-stand. Confused? Check out fashionistas Sonam Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez in her version of sporting the look with a denim jacket!

A high low hem tunic should do the lampshading trick equally well. Give a dressy look to it by picking a glamorous monochrome number or keep it casual with a solid top. Be your ‘lazy girl’-self in a comfy tunic and long boots you can wear all day!

Looking for a more modest and body-comfortable option, opt for a streamlined silhouette courtesy a shirt dress. Steer clear of waist-tied dresses as a cinched waist can ruin the overall look of the ensemble.

A good way to add glitz to the style is to experiment with colours. Since its just two elements you need to mix-and-match, you can stick to the basics or go big with unconventional colour combinations.
