I just need to talk about cargo pants right now—the controversial piece that’s often labeled as “ugly” and that’s suddenly winning me over in a huge way. I consider them to be a natural progression of the relaxed-trouser trend that has been huge over the last year (a personal favorite in my wardrobe), but this time around, it’s coming with lots more pockets. We are seeing the trouser variety as well as denim and skirt versions, which are just cementing the trend even more.
Put on the map by brands like The Attico and Max Mara, whose fall collections are heavily steeped in the pieces, the cargo trend feels fresh and cool and recently landed in my shopping cart. Plus, it’s already being worn by the coolest fashion insiders, so if you’re on the fence, you can rest assured that it’s worthy of a test-drive. Ahead, shop the coolest pieces to tap into the cargo trend with.
