She could honestly wear a trash bag and make it look cool

Author, actress, founder of swimwear brand and Puma Speedcat Sparco Stan debuted her “underwear as outerwear” iteration on her Instagram Story yesterday. Em opted for the famous Fashion Week trend, wearing a black thong under a sheer midi skirt from retailer Mango. She paired her daring skirt and briefs combo with a pair of black knee-high leather boots and a double-layered tank top style, also from Mango, which, in my humble opinion, is almost as interesting as the bottom half of the fit.

This isn't the first time Em has flaunted the “no pants” trend. She is first seen donning a pair of itty-bitty black shorts/panties with a pair of red sneakers during an official cool girl transaction at NYFW. It's also not the first time the A-lister has sported the other most flattering fashion aesthetic at the moment, as she shared a series of hyper-glam images in a fishnet dress and black panty ensemble with her friend just a few weeks ago, but this This is the first time we've seen her start a new tank top trend.

In another story, Em takes her duties as a passenger very seriously and shoots a close-up video of herself wearing not one but two tank tops, a black style with thin straps over a classic white ribbed style. If there was anyone who would take the unusual styling choice and make it look chic, of course it would be Emily.

It's too early to tell, but could layered tank tops be this summer's most notable new style? The jury is still out and only time will tell…
