Trending RN: Cargo Pants!

Whether you’re ready or not, the cargo pant trend is comin’! Alongside the waist bags, popper pants and mom jeans that you thought you’d left waaay back in the ‘90s, cargo pants are making their comeback!

Back from the ‘90s

During their first time around, cargo pants were the street uniform of ‘90s queens Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguilera, Aaliyah and loads more. They were the ultimate pant for easy, off-duty comf – that still made a statement.

Well they’re back, officially a trend and we are totally crushing on ‘em. Moving away from the grungy looks of the past, cargos have been updated with a fresh new vibe. Keepin’ their pockets for an iconic look (and ‘cause they’re so useful!), the new additions to the cargo pant crew are more flattering than before.

How to Style the Cargo Pant Trend?

Not convinced that cargos are for you yet? We’re gonna give you some tips on styling ‘em up so you can see exactly how to work the trend for yourself…

If you’re all about retro ‘fits, grab some camo cargos and rep the ultimate ‘90s look. Just like Mean Girls’ Kady Heron, throw it back with a street-ready camo print, but maybe ditch the flip flops for a pair of chunky trainers! Adding some extra retro flavour, accessorise with a waist bag. Spice Girls reunion? SO ready.

Taking you from day out to night out – cargo pants can be dressed up or down. For a night out, why not pair ‘em with a strappy cami top and some barely-there heels. For this look, it’s all about the accessories! For jewellery? All. Gold. Everything.

Wanna go down the sports luxe route? Wear your cargo pants with a sporty 1/2 zip track top and some iconic sneakers. We love ‘em with Nike’s Air Force 1 or any of the Air Max fam.
