Cargoes Are This Year's It Pants—Here's How the Fashion Set Is Wearing Them
It seems like there's always a new Y2K-inspired trend emerging on the fashion scene, and this time, it's cargo pants. When I tried to find outfits on Instagram with cargo pants a few months ago, I struggled. More recently though, I found a plethora of 'fits that featured this year's It pants on my feed. I'm not surprised, as the pant style is as comfortable as it is cool.
Whether you like to keep your outfits more on the minimal side or go off the Y2K deep end, the style is as versatile as your favorite pair of jeans. If you're on the hunt for some styling inspiration, I rounded up eight outfits that'll show you exactly how to wear your new favorite pants. If you haven't secured a pair yet, I've also included the best on the market—just keep scrolling.
Button-downs are outfit saviors, and it's no different here. Pair your cargo pants with one for an off-duty look.
I love how this outfit features both sporty and preppy elements—it just serves as proof that you don't need to hone in on only one aesthetic.
If you love the feel of denim but the look of cargo pants, there are options for you, too. Since the jeans offer a trendy aspect, you can keep it simple with neutrals on top.
White trousers will always look elevated, but a cargo-pant option just adds a more street-style feel to the ensemble. Add a leather jacket and boots so the pants will pop against the moodier colors.
Again, there's no harm in keeping it easy. A fun T-shirt will not only look cool but also be extremely comfortable. I'd opt for this look on the days I want to be extremely no-fuss.
I love the versatility a neutral pair of cargo pants offers, but a pop of color will be an easy way to level up an otherwise simple outfit.
Thin cargo pants make a great pairing for the ultimate vacation look. Just add a tube top or easy tank and a pair of sandals. Remember that vacation is all about looking chic but also feeling relaxed, and these pants will help you do that.
