The "Ugly" Pant Trend Cool Girls Are Wearing Instead Of Jeans

When I was younger, there was no one cooler to me than Kim Possible (I know she was animated, but still.) Turns out, her style is still are on-trend today as I'm catching all the cool-girls wear cargo pants as their replacement for jeans. Although we love a good pair of denim here at Who What Wear, we also love experimenting with mixing new staples into our wardrobe, and right now, we're presenting a strong case for cargo pants.

From graphic tees to cropped cardigans, fashion girls are pairing almost everything with their new choice of comfy pants. Since most pairs come in neutral tones, it makes a pretty easy item to transition into your wardrobe. Since there are a plethora of options on the internet, I narrowed down to some of the best pairs to shop right now. Scroll below to shop, you'll even find some outfit inspiration along the way.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
