    1. Do you see that man in checked pants/jeans?
    Yes, or 'in the' if you are referring to a specific pair of pants.
    2. Do you see that girl in a polka dot skirt?
    Yes.
    3. Do you see that boy in a red t-shirt?
    Yes.
    4.Do you see the woman in a yellow blouse?
    Yes.
    5.Do you see that woman in white shoes/boots?
    Yes.
    6. Do you see that woman in a checked hat?
    Yes, or 'the checked hat,' if you are pointing out a specific hat.
    7.Do you see that man with sunglasses?
    Yes, or 'wearing'. 'With sunglasses' can mean that he is holding them in his hand, or that he has a box of them for sale, or...
    8.Do you see that little boy in pajamas?
    Yes.
    9. Do you see that woman with big earrings?
    Yes.
    10. Do you see that girl with blonde hair?

    You could also use 'wearing' in place of 'in' in all these examples.

    I hope this is helpful,

    Petra
