13 Photos Of Celebs That Prove 'Lampshading' Is A Legit Trend

Because wearing pants is so last season.

13 Photos Of Celebs That Prove 'Lampshading' Is A Legit Trend

It's a style based out of comfort. A style that allows you to leave the house feeling less constricted, and one that doesn't require spending heaps of money on a well thought out outfit. One that college sorority girls have popularized and made synonymous to their style, though I'm sure that it was happening long before.

Protestors of "lampshading" insist it's a sloppy look. Some go as far as to say those who lampshade look like they just rolled out of bed (which I'm usually guilty of).

However, when it comes to T-shirts and hoodies, I say the bigger the better. XXL please.

Lampshading: Wearing an oversized T-shirt and athletic shorts that are hidden by the shirt. This gives the girl a silhouette similar to that of a lampshade. (Usually worn by college girls, esp. sorority girls).

It's time for the lampshade criticism to end and these 13 photos of celebrities rocking the classic sorority trend is all the proof I need to convince you.

1. Kendall Jenner

Jenner's Givenchy T-shirt rings in at around $2,000 while a Comfort Colors T-shirt is closer to $20, but it doesn't mean she hasn't taken to the popular trend of lampshading.

2. Rihanna

We expected nothing less than support from Bad Girl Riri in the endeavor to #makelampshadingcoolagain.

3. Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens is famously known for her gypsy-like festival style. It's surprising and refreshing to see her supporting the move towards popularizing the oversized T-shirt look.

4. Gigi Hadid

If it's good enough for a super model, it's good enough for me.

5. Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner subtly lifts her shirt to remind the rest of us she remembered to put on shorts- a common fear for the everyday lampshader.

6. Jaden Smith

Jaden Smith has been ahead of the trends with his gender-neutral fashion sense long before his first appearance in Vogue, so it's no surprise that he's also behind the movement towards oversized T-shirts and exposed thighs.

7. Bella Hadid

The youngest of the Hadid sisters shows solidarity to the movement in a statement T-shirt that essentially provides the message I want to send to all lampshading haters.

8. Kourtney Kardashian

It wouldn't be a style statement without including the eldest of the Kardashian clan. Plus, I couldn't help pass up an opportunity to show how she spiced up the classic look with a pair of now sold out Aquazzura Velvet thigh high boots in midnight blue.

9. Hailey Baldwin

Thus confirming Hailey Baldwin's style is the only style I'll be channeling on LSU's campus this fall.

10. Jourdan Dunn

Jourdan Dunn is a highly ranked super model for a reason. If she isn't ahead of the trends, she's creating them herself. Now, she's added the oversized shirt and no-pants look to her seemingly effortless style.

11. Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande paired her XL T-shirt with a pair of high-heeled booties and a jacket for a night out. I'll definitely be trying this for a night in Tigerland this fall.

12. Rihanna (part two)

Including Rihanna twice because she can do no wrong. Plus, she's given me a lot of inspiration that involves swapping out my tennis shoes and pairing my thigh highs with my extra large T-shirts.

13. Justin Bieber

Technically his pants are visible so he's not really "lampshading" but lately Justin Bieber has taken to wearing long T-shirts that nearly reach his knees. Now, imagine a world where Bieber is pant-less and he's one step closer to bidding a sorority this fall.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.


Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
