Cargo pants are back and better than ever!
Across the streets of Paris this week, fashion insiders have stepped up to the next level in utilitarian bottoms with multiple side pockets.
From luxurious fabrics to unexpected colors and chic details, the Y2K casual trend has been reimagined by high-end designers like Louis Vuitton and embraced by style icons around the world.
Josephine Skriver was photographed in casual style outside the Zimmermann show at Paris Fashion Week.
The Danish model wore a monochromatic ensemble of white lace bra topped with a sleeveless vest and tweed cargo pants featuring a long belt and zipper detail.
Her military-inspired bottoms with huge pockets are a far cry from the styles popular in Delia’s catalog at the time.
She completed the look with gold earrings and beige leather heels.
Once designed for comfort and convenience, today’s iteration is not only sophisticated, but styled to perfection by today’s top trendsetter, Tamara Kalinic.
Outside the Louis Vuitton show, the influencer with a whopping 1.4 million Instagram followers wore a black and white striped tank top with checkered shoulder straps from the French design house.
She paired a flirty top with Louis Vuitton cotton-linen cargo pants, accented by heathered-effect linen-textured detailing on the pockets.
Wide-leg style bottoms were seen on several attendees in various fabrics and colors at the Louis Vuitton show.
Another guest paired gold-coated canvas denim cargo pants with tweed pockets with a matching crop top.
Fashionistas have proven that functional bottoms can be fashioned into a look that’s cool enough to grab the attention of a street style photographer.
Yoyo Cao (also known by her Instagram handle Yoyo Kulala) warmed up in brown suede cargo pants while walking through the City of Light.
The Singapore-based fashion designer and digital entrepreneur paired trendy bottoms with a brown top and matching puffer vest.
She added a pop of color to her look with a green hooded scarf.
In Germany, influencer Annette Weber was spotted modeling beige cargo pants with drawstring ankle detail in a street style photo shoot for Second Female.
She paired slacks with a dark beige Max Mara trench jacket, Chloé sneakers, a brown Max Mara bag, and Balenciaga sunglasses.
Outside of a Balenciaga fashion show, guests looked sophisticated and toned, but still casual, in tan cargo pants, white blouses, checkered printed boots, and denim jackets.
Niki Wu Jie looked like a modern fashion plate wearing the coveted label from head to toe at the Chanel show.
The model wears faded blue denim cargo pants with adjustable buckle detailing and a pale pink embroidered sequin jacket with black shiny leather and gold chain pendant belt.
She had not one but two Chanel handbags, including a green patent leather micro-crossbody and a small brown handheld bag.
