Do you like Cargo Pants?

I love them, because they give a sporty vibe :)

In the past few seasons, the most used cargo pants are olive skinny cargo pants,
which are a great choice!


Because olive is a pretty neutral colour and skinny pants always look stylish!

Easy Styling

1. As I said, cargo pants are a sporty, kind of masculine piece, so they look great with chic and more feminine pieces. Try them with a lux knit or cute feminine blouse
(ex: a cashmere beige sweater, a nude lace blouse or a sweatshirt with a feminine print like flowers).

2. Olive works with almost any colour because it’s a neutral tone, but some classic combinations are white (or beige), red, pink and black.

3. Wear it with a stylish jacket (denim, leather, blazer), a cardigan or a classic coat.

4. Finally the shoes: it looks great with feminine shoes like ballet flats, pumps or sandals but you can also wear them with ankle boots.

Who Can Wear Cargo Pants?

Everybody! Just look for the right placement of the pocket, especially if you have large legs: it shouldn’t hit mid hip because it adds bulk.

It’s great if it’s a bit above the knee, where your thigh starts to narrow down.

Where to Wear Them?

They’re too sporty for a formal work or party, but they look great in casual-chic and casual looks.
