Make no mistake about it: Fall is here. The cooler temps and shorter days mean one thing: It’s time to pack away sandals, shorts and summer dresses and stock your closet with sweaters and long pants instead.

We already shared the sweater trends that need to be on your radar this season, so now it’s time for pants. Whether you need casual options to wear on the weekends or something dressier for the office, check out this year’s popular pants trends below. Mark my words: You’re going to see a lot of them this fall and winter.

1. Faux Leather Pants

Faux-leather leggings are always a cold-weather staple, but this year, looser, straight-leg, faux-leather styles are taking centerstage. While black is classic, don't be afraid to branch out with a pair of colored faux-leather pants.

2. Wide Leg

Just as skinny jeans are taking a back seat to wider styles right now, so are slim-leg trousers. When you're headed to the office, opt for a wide-leg pant instead, and you'll be a head-turning trendsetter.

3. Plaid

Everyone thinks to bust out the plaid shirts come fall, but this season, try a pair of plaid pants instead. They're surprisingly versatile. Wear them with a sweater or blazer for work or with a cute crop top for a night out.

4. Split-Hem Pants

Split-hem jeans are trending this season, so it shouldn't be surprising that split-hem pants are as well. Most styles have a fitted silhouette, so they're great for date night with your favorite heels.
