Cargo pants are a top casual solution for a pair of trousers.
When the jeans feel too tight, the black pants too boring and the skirt not right – pull out the cargo pants.
I wore the cargo style pants constantly for a few years, until I didn’t. A little bit like the black jeans, I forgot them and left them behind. From memory they were such a staple in my wardrobe until they tore through the knees and I never replaced them. Silly me, they are a winner.
This morning a reader asked for my help to choose between two styles of pants and my suggestion was these.
Why aren’t these in my wardrobe? That’s what I thought as I scooted around online finding the pairs I thought would work well for her.
Next thought, I had better show you too. :) Today’s entry was not going to be about cargo pants but when I get something fixed in my mind, the rest flies out.
How do you wear your cargo pants?
Wear them with cashmere tees, sweaters and a pair of sneakers or trainers.
Try an oversized sweatshirt over the tee and pair with your mules.
Tailor up and add a pinstriped blazer over the top and a pair of pumps.
Winter days, pull out the 3/4 coats, a camel sweater and a pair of booties.
The contrast between utilitarian style and the feminine really works.
I can’t wait to wear mine. xv
This Cargo Is In The Hold
