We get it: You’re skeptical of silky printed pants. You have every right to be. Do them wrong, and you’re in pajama territory. Or worse: Ridiculous fancy sweatpant territory.

But there’s hope, and it comes in the form of these five celebs, who have all worn printed pants within the last few weeks and looked darn adorable doing so. In styles ranging from super-comfy to super-funky, they give us assurance that we too can pull off this tricky trend.

From left: Pippa Middleton‘s outfit would look just as good with jeans, but her Alice by Temperley pants give the look a bright spin that ensures she’ll stand out on the dance floor. Zoë Saldana‘s Ella Moss cropped patterned pair can be dressed up, but with jeans and cool sunglasses, they’re perfect for a low-key walk around town (much better than ratty sweats!). Kate Beckinsale looks totally polished (but completely comfortable) in her racer-stripe Diane von Furstenberg pair and a black blazer while stepping off a flight.

Finally, Gwen Stefani plays up the funky aspect of her bold, blousy pair with multihue Quay Eyeware frames and eye-catching yellow sandals, while Disney star Zendaya embraces the look completely by going head-to-toe with the print and bright pink shades of her cropped pants.

Tell us: Are you into this trend, or have you been afraid to try it? Whose look would you wear?
