Tackle The Trend

Cargo's are definitely one of this season's most popular pant option. The starlets have been seen all over wearing the famous J. Brand Houlihan Cargo. I prefer this skinny style of the cargo, I have tried on some baggier versions and I just think it is a little too "construction worker" for me. If you're going to do the cargo look find a pair that is form fitting.
You can work this look a number of ways. You can go military-esque sticking to structured tops and a shoe boot option like Kim. You could also go edgy with a crop top and balance it out with a floral girlie print. You could go relaxed with flats like Gwen paired with a boyfriend top. Dress is up with a silky top and girlie pumps. Or try platforms with a boyfriend sweater like Jess. I like pairing the cargo with girlie options to balance out the structured look of the pant. Mauves, pinks, nudes, and blush tones are my favorite to pair with a military green.
Don't have $200 to shell out for something as trendy as cargos? Try more frugal options such as Nordstrom's Sanctuary People Pant for $98 or Shopbop's Blank Cargo for $78.
