Sometimes the weather in California is just a tad too warm for jeans but a little too chilly for shorts, so on days like those out come the cargos! After the 90’s obsession with cargos they kinda lost their fashion way, however if you have a good pair and wear them right they never go out of style in my own style rulebook. This time last year I visited The Dressing Room for their 10th Birthday bash and ended up buying a new pair of JBrand cargo pants in olive green, these are cuffed around the top of the ankle with zip pockets on the thighs, not quite full on cargo pants more of a slight variant on the JBrand ‘Earhart’ flight pant launched a few years ago. But as soon as I pulled them on I had to have them…
These cargos are a wardrobe favourite as they can be worn in so many ways, sadly they are about two sizes to big for me now but luckily I like the oversized look. Last Saturday I wore them out in the day with a JCrew tank, Helmut Lang denim jacket, Superga sneakers and my Charlotte Simone hat, then by night I added a black 360 Cashmere sweater, Golden Goose sneakers and my Selected Femme faux fur coat to add a bit of Saturday night glamour. I know they are not the obvious choice for wearing out in the evening but cargos just work with everything, even heels.
How do you wear your cargos?
