If cargo pants remind you of your student days, you may want to give this early 2000s trend another glimpse. After all, the Spring/Summer 2017 runways are all pointing to cargo pockets as a major leading trend. Along with the pretty floral frocks of the season, cargo trousers are set to leave their mark on summertime fashion. With their handy oversized pockets and comfortable, relaxed fit, there’s nothing like these loose bottoms to complete your casual street style for the weekend. If you’re wondering how to wear the trend, look no further than these tips.
At Sies Marjan, the aesthetic was chic and subtly metallic, with these soft silver cargo capris. The crinkled fabric and loose cut created an effortlessly stylish silhouette which can easily bring you from day to night. The look was finished off with a ribbed V-neck knit sweater and a pair of black open-toe loafers.
If you want to merge elements of athleisure with the cargo trend, simply glance at the DKNY catwalk. These sheer white trousers feature big pockets and an edgy, harem pants inspired style. To truly master the look, add a matching hooded zip-up jacket, and prepare to channel vibes from an early 1990s fitness class.
Think tailored skinny trousers for a more modern take on the cargo pant (as spotted at Carven). These fitted navy pants make a bold appearance with their asymmetrical zippers, metallic detail and distressed pattern. Just complete the ensemble with a lacy white tank and a choker necklace, and allow your inner rebel to truly shine.
