Bella Hadid has given us many new trends—from step-hem reconstructed jeans, to chainmail, to teaching us how to wear our tracksuits out in public, and now, camouflage cargo pants. It’s an interesting trend to resurface (we thought these were so left behind), but we can put it down to our obsession with all things ’90s and the early ‘00s. The era I grew up in is quite clearly having a resurgence, and with the noughties, came cargo pants. I have distinct memories of Jennifer Lopez wearing them, so naturally, I had to have them too. Unfortunately, I never looked as chic in camo as Bella Hadid, which gives me all the more reason to give the trend a second run.
Bella wore her pair loose and on the hips, and added a crop top with a velour bomber jacket and lace-up heels. The lace-up heels give it a sexy edge, and make it feel more dressed up. If she’d opted for a pair of white sneakers, the look would feel decidedly more relaxed (in a ‘90s hip-hop kinda way).
Right now, camouflage cargo pants feel as fresh as ever, and when brands like Vetements and Dsquared2 are dipping into the trend, you know it’s worth wearing. Keep scrolling to see Bella’s full look and shop a pair for yourself.
