THREE WAYS TO WEAR CARGO PANTS

July 29, 2019

Fashion and function are having a '90s-themed reunion this summer, and girl-band-approved utility is back in a big way. So, take tips from your fave combat-wearing crew and pick up some loosely cut cargo pants for a fresh summer look. The best thing about them? They can be styled up or down to finesse so many different 'fits — so you can nail your 9-5 and your 5-9.

Work it

Looking for laid-back office vibes? Perfect your TGIF wardrobe by pairing these soft cargo pants with a lightweight tailored blazer, opting for a sleeveless cut for muggy summer days. Up the ante with high-heeled mules and a sleek little shoulder bag for that "sliding into the weekend" look.

The Weekenders

If you're heading off on a day trip or just to the park with pals, there's a utility look for that, too. Slip your fave new pants on with a cream crop top and gleaming white sneakers for low-key cool. Oh, and don’t forget accessories for some supermodel-inspired street style — think the Hadid sisters’ statement earrings and skinny sunglasses to finish off the look.

Cargo Club

Go hands-free on your next night out and put those classic cargo pant pockets to good use. Great for a night-out with the crew, you can dress them up with statement jewelry and your fave clutch. And just 'cause they’re khaki doesn’t mean you need to go all neutral — team them with a sparkly crop top and statement strappy sandals, and you’ll be catching looks in no time.
