The Skinny on Cargos

Until recently, I would never have considered myself a fan of the cargo pant - the generally baggy, unflattering, masculine pant isn't really my thing. However, lately my sight has been set on these sleek, edgy, skinny cargos, and they have landed at the top of my fall wish list!

The J Brand Houlihan cargo (pictured third) have been seen on pretty much everyone lately - Kate Bosworth, Jessica AlbaRachel Bilson, Sara Paxton, and Vaness Hudgens just to name a few! While I do love the general look, the back flap pockets may not be overly flattering (unless you've been blessed with a perfect little bottom like the above mentioned celebs). But don't fret, there are tons of full pocketed options out there! While my hunt for the perfect (affordable) pair continues, I must say the first & last pair pictured below definitely have me swooning.




01 Paige Denim Layne Cargo Pant $169
02 AE Military Jegging $49.50
03 J Brand Houlihan Skinny Cargo $240
04 Vince Denim Ankle Cargo Skinny Jeans$225

  7. honey i've got those jbrands and they're worth every penny...although it looks like vince has a wonderful alternative as well.

    peeped some current/elliott's and almost went off the edge of the wallet, but held back...less expensive versions will be popping up for fall.

    superb!

  8. Although the name "jeggings" is about enough to scare me right into a pair of baggy sweatpants ... those #2's are awfully cute!

  14. oooh, these are gorgeous! I was in the same boat as you - and never thought I'd wear cargo pants (and clogs, for that matter) but I love them now! (and own a pair of each! :) )

    I got mine from H&M and were only £15!

  15. You can find the Paige and the J Brand both at Envy!! the paige are better on people with a rounder butt because the J Brand have no back pockets... but I must admit, i will forever be loyal to the zipper ankle houlihans.
