I'm Ready to Ditch Skinny Jeans for These 5 Popular Pant Trends

No, I'm not here to hate on skinny jeans. The classic style has plenty of redeeming qualities, but there are just so many other trends to experiment with right now that I'd be remiss not to point them out. When I set out to find the most popular pant trends among celebrities, I definitely struck gold thanks to Rihanna, Blake Lively, Meghan Markle, Selena Gomez, and more.

Markle, for her part, has a penchant for polished wide-leg trousers, which she typically wears with pieces in matching colors for a cool monochrome look. Gomez, on the other hand, prefers a more laidback look in the form of plaid pants worn with lace-up combat boots. Scroll down to shop my favorite five pant trends inspired by celebrities. 

1. Baggy, Wide-Leg Pants

On Rihanna: Maria Moscone coat; Rick Owens pants; Savage x Fenty gloves

Her lemon-and-lime color combo here is giving me life, but I also love her baggy pants styled with pointy-toe pumps peeking out. Rihanna has been wearing a lot of ultra-baggy pant styles lately and always pulls them off with aplomb. 

2. Loose-Fitting Pinstripe Pants

On Blake Lively: Chanel boots

For a fall stroll in New York City, Lively wore these relaxed pinstripe pants with lace-up Chanel boots. Are you taking outfit notes? I traditionally associate pinstripe pants with stuffy, corporate pantsuits, but Lively's versions are so much more chill. 

3. Track Pants

On Bella Hadid: Nike jacket and pants; Asics sneakers

Sporty spice, anyone? Hadid looks ready to compete for the U.S. in the Olympics—in the most stylish way, of course. In reality, she was on her way to the gym and eschewed leggings in favor of cool track pants by Nike. 

4. Monochrome Pantsuits

On Meghan Markle: Emporio Armani coat; The Row turtleneck; Aquazzura pumps; Cartier watch

Meghan Markle certainly knows the power of a monochrome ensemble. Along with Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth, Markle loves to stick to one color and wear it from head to toe. You can never go wrong with a matching pantsuit. 

5. Plaid Pants

On Selena Gomez: Veronica Beard pants; Kurt Geiger boots

I love how Gomez paired her plaid pants with casual lace-up combat boots here. Plaid pants might seem like they belong at the office, but Gomez proved that they can be styled in a super casual and laidback way for fall and winter.
