How to Style Cargo Pants


Since last summer, everyone we know has started sporting cargo pants again. The military-rooted style has easily become an essential piece in everyone’s closet. Cargo pants were the perfect opportunity for me to play with silhouettes and make utility chic — two things that are staples to my wardrobe.

But if you’re still a little hesitant or want to switch up the way you’ve been styling you’re favorite cargo pants, here’s how we at Coveted Style like to style cargo pants for any occasion:

Utilitarian Chic

The most common way to wear cargos matches the function of the pants: for utility. The pants scream comfort and accessibility with the rather loose fit and seemingly endless amount of pockets. Pair your favorite cargo pants with some military boots, a fitted black tank or tee and layer a denim jacket for a casual look.

Date Night

Tired of wearing your typical jeans-and-a-cute top look for your dates with bae? Switch up your skinny jeans for your cargo pants. You can pair your cargos with a silky cowl neck bodysuit or tank and a simple nude heel to wow your date at first glance.
