You can find womens cargo pants in a variety of styles – from cargo capri pants to cropped pants and shorts, from colors like classic khaki to black, olive green to denim blue, white and even pink! Also choose between convenient features such as drawstring or rib waist.
Women cargo pants are some of the best casual pants any woman should have in their wardrobe, especially if your style revolves around comfort and casual fashion. They’re practical, comfy and cute!
Most fitted cargo pants are versatile and can be worn with tees, blouses, sweaters, and even different footwear styles such as heeled pumps and wedge heels! Although they’re never appropriate for the office – they can be styled in multiple ways so that you can wear the pants as a part of your everyday daily or dressier outfit.
How to Buy the Perfect Pair of Cargo Pants
How should it fit?
A pair of cargo pants should be slightly loose-fitted enough to give a little breathing space around your crotch. They don’t have to be loose around the legs. However, nowadays you can also find cargo pants with a slim and tapered leg.
I would definitely purchase one pair in a classic, play & wreck style – which can be worn for active outings or if you want to create a juxtaposition of casual-cool and classy (think cargos with a basic tee and thong sandals). But I wouldn’t go overboard with the baggy cut.
If you’re not that much outside of the house (meaning: out hiking, fishing by the lake, etc.) – then buy a pair of slim fitted (fit snugly around the hips/butt and straight at the legs) cargo pants in green or khaki/beige. They look incredibly chic with a pair of heels and a silk blouse or a loose-fitted white shirt.
What leg style do you look good in?
You can find cargo pants with different leg styles such as wide leg (very outdated, in my opinion, but are ideal for backpacking or camping out) and even skinny leg (the more up-to-date version of casual pants). However, the most flattering cut is the straight leg as wider hems make you look wider and stumpier because of the boxy fabric (and not least the pockets!)
If you have an Inverted Triangle or Rectangle body shape then you’ve got a head start on these because they balance out your body figure and create curves on your slim hips.
If you’re the classy and sophisticated gal, you’ll be surprised by the womens cargo pants being sold in the stores today. They’ve become sleeker and fitted – which is adapt to most clothing styles. An example is the slightly tailored chino pants or the sleek and fitted capri cargo pants.
Knee length cargos are especially trendy, perfect for summer and look good on all body shapes and modern and hip fashion-forward women.
