Celebs are mad for plaid!

With designers like Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana and Rebecca Minkoff sending tartan creations down the runway, we can't say we're surprised fashion-forward A-listers are hopping on the hot fall trend.

And though the pattern may be a classic that's been around for ages, our fave celebs are giving the plaids a fresh spin with inspirational outfits.

Take style star Jessica Alba, who stuns in a look that's more lovely than lumberjack by mixing the plaid pattern of her Skies Are Blue top with a chic leopard print clutch. Her eye-catching wine-stained lips don't hurt, either!

For even more feminine flair, we suggest following in the fashionable footsteps of Olivia Palermo, who adds sex appeal to her schoolgirl sweet plaid dress by reaching for a zipper embellished Zara design and head-turning over-the-knee boots.

Hailee Steinfeld gives the grunge look a girly makeover by tying a plaid shirt around the waist of her sleek Emporio Armani dress, while Kate Upton keeps cozy in a sweater featuring a fun, oversized plaid print that feels totally modern.
