August 10, 2023 How to Style Cargo Pants

It’s time to talk about how to style cargo pants because we’re seeing them everywhere. In many ways, they’ve become as much of a wardrobe staple as jeans and leggings. We even included them in our latest selling guide.

They may feel one-note when looking at them alone on the hanger, but trust us that there are several ways to wear them. Here are 6 ways we like to style them.

1. Baggy

This is probably our most-worn look. We like to keep the whole look baggy with a cozy sweatshirt or oversized tee.

2. Edgy

Cargo pants can take on a punk vibe when you add edgy items like combat boots and bomber jackets.

3. With Cropped Tops

Perfect for a warm day, adding a cropped top is an easy way to style cargos.

4. With an Oversized Sweater

With fall and winter on the horizon, we already know we’ll be styling our cargo pants with oversized knits.

5. In Place of Jeans

Try your cargo pants in place of jeans for a whole new look with your casual outfits.

6. Weekend Uniform

It only takes a tank or tube top, sneakers, and a crossbody bag to have you ready for weekend errands or exploration.
