MUST-HAVE: CARGO TROUSERS
By Meghan October 14, 2020 No comments

Practical. Easy-care. Comfortable. You’re right! Our first associations with the term ‘cargo trousers’ were not ones of glamour and style. Whether in wool or denim, the fabric you choose determines the look. Read more about the trend pattern from the 09/2020 issue...

Our first associations with the term ‘cargo trousers’ were not ones of glamour and style. Could that have to do with the applied pockets, roomy legs, or the stiff workwear fabric? Designers have also searched for answers to the question – with impressive results. Pockets and comfort are a big plus, and this season we can sew them in the fabric of our choice.

Therefore cargo trousers in fine wool, cool mesh or denim, and even elegant print material are populating the catwalks this season. Our model at the right also showcases the cut’s versatility. Imagine it in an elegant jacquard wo-ven instead of everyday cotton. With an elegant blouse or roll-neck, cargo trousers can compete with any evening outfit – envious glances guaranteed...

Everyone looks good in cargo trousers. At the top, they hug your figure and the belt emphasises the waist. The pleats and applied pockets add moderate, yet modern volume around the legs. The cropped length shows our favourite ankle boots to their best advantage.

Cargos in sleek brown cotton bring a nice contrast to a crisp white top - then, of course, you need to accessorize with sunnies and matching white pumps.

There is something about fall layers that are so cozy and fashionable since the parkas have not come out to play yet. We love this pairing of a sleek waistcoat and printed tunic. Then why not elevate the look with a golden bag.

This is truly the season of velvet - and just because you are sporting a more casual pant silhouette, that doesn't mean that you can't have fun with the top! Opt for a flirty and fun velvet top like this to spruce up the look with matching sandals, and remember you can still rock open toe shoes with socks and tights.

 

MONOCHROME CARGOS

Dressing head to toe in a single color hue is such an on-trend style. It is flattering, elongating, and super chic! You can even keep it cozy with a plush pullover like this one in matching brown. Then don't forget about the bag!
