So far, 2023 has been defined by one risky fashion trend: the no-pants look. While celebrities have embraced the daring trend more than anyone else, it’s gaining steam. Originating on the runways of Bottega Veneta, Victoria Beckham, Khaite, and Coperni, this trend is defined by wearing sheer tights and briefs with no actual pants in sight. Naturally, celebs have taken the shock value up a notch, pushing the no-pants trend by wearing barely-there hot pants.
Celebrities have begun embracing teeny-tiny shorts seemingly overnight, and we’re predicting they’ll be the next big—err, small—daring trend. Recently, Hailey Bieber wore a leather pair from Saint Laurent, which she styled with sheer tights and a maxi coat. And, of course, we took note of the chic way she wore the bare-legs look. Then, we spotted Sophie Turner wearing knit hot pants with a cropped blazer and low slingbacks when heading to dinner in L.A. It was then that we started officially keeping an eye out for the bubbling trend. Fashion people are all over the look, too, wearing iterations of Miu Miu’s raw-edge tweed shorts, which tells us it’s definitely becoming a thing.
Ahead, see how we’re charting the hot pants trend from celebrities to social media. And shop our picks for the one-inch hemline if you dare.
