Rei Kawakubo, the Japanese designer and mastermind behind Comme des Garçons, the company she founded in 1973, is often regarded as light-years ahead of her peers in the fashion industry not just in terms of her design capabilities, but also her vision that brought shopping experiences like Dover Street Market to life. On Monday, Kawakubo presented Comme des Garçons’ fall 2018 collection, and for the first time in 20 years, Black models appeared on the runway.

During the Balmain Paris Fashion Week on Friday morning, Olivier Rousteing ‘s “ Balmain Army ” strutted the runway wearing what Yahoo Lifestyle predicts will be the next big fall trend: sexy, sheer pants. Models from the show wore sheer trousers paired with matching, partly see-through blouses, blazers, and coats. Rousteing is the latest designer to capitalize on this risqué fashion look for fall. Although many designers, such as Gucci and Jason Wu , have delved into making sheer apparel this season, the creations have mainly been relegated to skirts and dresses. Rousteing’s version feels more modern, sleek, and sexy. However, sheer pants are not new to fashion’s runway history. They actually first appeared back in 2014 and 2015, thanks to other fashion labels: Chanel and Loewe . In 2015, Kris Jenner quickly hopped on the trend, wearing Chanel’s sheer pant version to the brand’s couture show. Since then, models Brooklyn Decker and Ashley Graham have been sporting their own glitzy jumpsuit versions on the red carpet, as actress January Jones has done as well. Are sheer pants practical? No. But are they glamorous and sexy? Absolutely. Ahead, see the sheer pants look evolve from the fashion runway to the red carpet. Would you try this new trend? Tell us in the comments below.
