The “No Pants” trend that celebrities endorsed throughout the summer is seemingly carrying over to the fall and quite frankly, I’m over it.
Ditching your trousers for a pair of hot pants — or even straight up undies — isn’t remotely interesting. And, at this point, it’s pretty much been done to death.
Not only that, but it’s a rather impractical trend for any normal human (i.e. non-celebrity) to pull off IRL. No pants to the office? No pants to brunch with friends? I think not.
In fact, this whole saga is a great reminder that, just because the fashion world has endorsed a trend, doesn’t mean it’s necessarily cute. Sometimes the fashion gods just get it wrong (the return of low-rise jeans should have been our first indicator of that).
Below, check out the five fall 2023 trends that I’m trying instead.

1. Maxi Denim Skirts
Fall is all about denim and this season, we’re embracing longer hems! Opt for a midi or maxi denim skirt with a front slit to get the full look.
2. Tall Boots
If you still want to go for a shorter hem try pairing your mini skirt with over-the-knee boots, which have become this season’s it-shoe. Or, try layering a midi dress over knee boots if you prefer a more modest aesthetic.
3. Satin Pants
Somehow both incredibly chic and comfy, satin pants are the perfect way to dress up your outfit without compromising comfort. Not only that, but the options are endless. Some of our favorite styles include joggers, wide-leg, and cargo pants.
The cargo trend re-emerged earlier this year and it looks like we’ll be carrying it into fall. Try it out with a pair of classic utility pants, cargo jeans, or even a cargo midi skirt.
5. Draped Maxi Dresses
Trade in your pants for a dress with a draped maxi dress. Choose a something in jersey for a more casual look or go for a satin piece if you’re in the mood to dress up.
