Cargo Pants For Women
It’s official! 2018 is THE year of unexpected fashion comebacks! From tube tops to scrunchies, crocs sandals to fanny packs and even visors, items that were once considered embarrassing and even shunned from the fashion community have returned and reclaimed the spaces and closets of people. One such item which is back with a bang is the cargo pant. Once the uniform of 1990s rock stars (think Gwen Stefani) the baggy, pocket heavy style is turning out to be a style staple this season.
Cargo pants, once also known as Combat pants, were originally made for official military purposes. They were loosely cut and designed for tough, outdoor activities. The characteristic multi pockets were actually designed for British and U.S. forces to hold field dressings, maps, rations and extra ammunitions. From there, it trickled down to the civilian community and became a huge hit with people due to its multi pockets. Teenagers all over the world started wearing cargos slung low on their waists so as to channel grunge vibes. Cargo pants then became the go-tos of 90s rock stars like Gwen Stefani, Aaliyah and Melanie Blatt who essentially revolutionized these pants and even flaunted them on the red carpet!
Cargo Pants On Runways
Cargo pants definitely ruled the runways in the Spring 2018 collections. Huge fashion designers reinvented cargo pants in their collections like Alexander Wang with his slouchy army green cargo pants teamed with black corsets and lacy tops and Sies Marjan with office appropriate cargo pants in rust colored shades teamed with a crisp white button down. The styling opportunities of cargo pants were also explored further by big names like Emporio Armani, Sonia Rykiel, Stella McCartney and Just Cavalli.
