Every week, I scour the web to find inspiring outfits on your favorite celebs and help you recreate their looks! This week, I was inspired by Selena Gomez, Emily Ratajkowski, and Emma Roberts, who all wore plaid pants. Read on to see how you can get their looks for yourself.

Celebrity Look #1: Selena Gomez's Trendy Fall Ensemble 

Selena Gomez absolutely killed it in a super-trendy look while recently out in NYC.

Selena wore red checked trousers with a slight flare, which she paired with a black turtleneck sweater and a black leather jacket with a blue fur collar. She accessorized with a black box bag, black pumps with a metallic ankle strap, and a cool braided hairstyle.

Selena's ensemble is perfect for this fall, as it features trendy pieces that give a pair of plaid pants some edge.

Opt for a pair of pants with a red plaid print and a flared or straight-leg fit. Wear them with a black turtleneck sweater and a black faux leather moto jacket; this one features a blue faux fur collar similar to Selena's.

For Selena's night-out look, wear some ankle strap pumps and a structured black circle bag.

Celebrity Look #2: Emily Ratajkowski's Laid-Back Plaid

Emily Ratajkowski gave her plaid trousers a laid-back vibe, wearing them with sneakers while walking her dogs.

Emily paired her pants with a cropped gray t-shirt, a red belt with a gold buckle, and some vintage-inspired rectangular sunnies.

Emily's ensemble is a more casual way to wear plaid pants, but is still ultra trendy.

Get her look with a pair of wide-leg, high-rise plaid pants and a cropped (or not, depending on your preference) gray t-shirt. Wear a red belt with a gold buckle for a more polished look, and some rectangular sunnies for a trendy touch.

Complete this laid-back look with a pair of off-white sneakers.

Celebrity Look #3: Emma Roberts's Mixed Prints

Emma Roberts looked every bit the fashion insider she is while at NYFW, expertly mixing prints for a stylish look.

Emma contrasted her flared, plaid trousers with a leopard print coat and a black turtleneck underneath. She also wore white booties and carried a black bag with a chain-link strap.

For a bold look, mix things up by wearing plaid with another eye-catching print.

A pair of flared or wide-leg plaid pants will look especially flattering when worn with a heel– opt for white ankle booties, which have been trending. 

A leopard print coat makes a total statement when mixed with the plaid print, while a black turtleneck bodysuit balances out the prints. Complete the ensemble with a black crossbody bag featuring a chain-link strap.
