Emily Ratajkowski Got the Memo to Ditch Skinny Jeans for This Pant Trend

Emily Ratajkowski isn't the likeliest celebrity to wear skinny jeans, but there's certainly photographic evidence that she does wear them from time to time, along with a lot of straight-leg and loose-fit jeans. But lately, she's been ditching denim in favor of bike shorts, minidresses, and now utility pants. EmRata, whose favorite thing to wear with utility and cargo pants is crop tops (again, photographic evidence), wore a pleated pair with a crop top in NYC this week, signaling her approval of the rising pant trend.

Just last week, my fellow editor Nicole proclaimed her love for the cargo pant trend, even stating that she's putting her jeans away for it. She provided plenty of street style and Instagram evidence to back up the popularity of the trend, and Ratajkowski is all the It-girl proof we need that cargo and utility pants are the new wardrobe staple to buy for fall. Scroll to do just that.
