Last week, Dua Lipa made a case for fashion's favourite trend of the moment, and that is to forgo your trousers. The singer was spotted out and about in London wearing a full Ferragamo look, which consisted of a pair of micro shorts and tights, and for her newly released music video, Lipa is continuing her love of the trend, wearing a series of leotards and tiny shorts.

In a preview released on Instagram this week for her new song 'Illusion', Lipa is pictured in a number of revealing outfits including a black leotard, a sheer red dress over a bikini and a black lace ensemble with tiny shorts. The video was shot at the site of the Olympic swimming pool in Barcelona, and features her dancers wearing sporty shorts and white vest tops.

Of course, a music video is always an opportunity to push the boundaries of fashion, but the trouser-less trend has spread onto the catwalks and into street style over the past few seasons – and is one that the singer has committed to on a number of occasions, including on the red carpet and off-duty.

Aside from Lipa, a number of A-listers have embraced it too, including Kendall Jenner, who teamed black knickers with tights for a run to the farmer's market, Hailey Bieber, who wore an oversized leather jacket with pants, and Amelia Gray, who wore knickers with Uggs. Kristen Stewart meanwhile has made the no-trousers trend her signature during the press tour for Love Lies Bleeding, wearing a series of teeny, tiny shorts and leotards both on and off the red carpet.

Much of this has trickled down from the catwalk, of course, with Miu Miu leading the charge with its bedazzled knickers, but Mugler, Chloé, Gucci and Stella McCartney have all also shown teeny, tiny shorts or pants in one form or another in their most recent collections.
