Celebs—they're just like us! Except sometimes I like to think they're a little better at things. For example, styling sweatpants to actually look cute. As I've learned in recent weeks, no matter how effortless they are able to make it look, it's really not an easy feat. But that doesn't mean we can't get on their level.
I, for one, have been taking notes lately and found a whole trove of celeb sweatpant looks I plan on copying in the coming days. After all, what else do I have to do?
From Kendall to Zendaya to the athleisure queen herself (J.Lo, duh), below you'll find nine outfits that are just waiting to be recreated with pieces you likely already own. Of course, if you don't already own a pair of sweats you love or are simply in the mood to do a little shopping, I've got you covered there too. Just keep scrolling to get started.

Elsa Hosk's mismatched yet matching pink set is a reminder that there's always a cute outfit to be made by the items that are already in your wardrobe.

On Zendaya: Fendi Baguette Large ($2890); Adidas sneakers
An It bag never hurts, but for the time being, I'm taking notes on Zendaya's unexpected combo of sleek outerwear with a graphic tee and sweats.

On Emily Ratajkowski: Nike Classic Cortez Sneaker ($70)
I tend to favor cropped styles, but EmRata is making me want to give an oversized sweatshirt a chance. Too bad I don't have a cute pup to accessorize with.

Of course, J.Lo reminds us that you'll always look put-together in a matching set. Even in the most neutral of colors, this look stands out.

On Tracee Ellis Ross: Pattern Beauty Sweatpants ($50); Adidas sneakers
Tracee Ellis Ross and I seem to be in agreement that you can never go wrong with an all-black look—even when sweatpants are involved.
I've always felt that tying a sweater around your waist pulls together a casual outfit, and Katie Holmes just confirmed it.
