I’ve watched enough episodes of America’s Next Top Model to know that when attending a casting, you want to wear something simple and paired back but still cool, with a touch of individuality. Well, that’s exactly the look that supermodel and rising actress Kaia Gerber chose for a recent casting of her own (an acting one this time). Spotted outside of a casting office in Culver City this week, Gerber had on a cropped navy-blue T-shirt worn with an off-white canvas tote bag, oversized sunglasses, ballet flats, and, for her aforementioned hint of edge, a pair of trousers with a built-in miniskirt by Paloma Wool.

The skirt-over-pants trend has been rising the ranks in fashion for a while now, showing up in runway collections by a range of brands, including Sandy Liang for both spring/summer 2024 and fall/winter 2024 and Fendi for fall/winter 2023. Paloma Wool, a Barcelona-based fashion label founded by Paloma Lanna in 2014, is another fan of the hybrid bottoms, with pairs showing up in both spring/summer 2024 and fall/winter 2024 collections as well. Now that the style is hitting stores, celebs like Gerber are clearly catching on and falling fast.
