The Skinny Cargo Pant Trend

I never expected the cargo pants to come back in fashion and actually be popular! I was really suprised at how pretty and sexy the J Brand Houlihan cargo pant (above) is when I first saw it. I didn’t know what a phenomenon it would be though! I just recently got the J Brand Houlihan in Vintage Olive and I am loving it! It’s so comfy and so soft! I will be reviewing them next week! These pants also come in 6 different colours! You have lots to pick from. Click here to buy these pants at Singer22 in all 6 colours.

This season, pretty much every denim brand has released their take on the skinny cargo pant. Each brand makes it their own and adds unique little details to set them apart from the rest. I can’t wait to start seeing the other brands on celebs! So far it’s just been the J Brand Houlihan cargo pants and a couple of times the Paige Premium’s Layne cargo pant.

I have picked out a few of the Cargo pants which are available to buy right now, not all of them as there are so many, but I picked a few that I really like. Watch this space though because from what I have seen in the upcoming collections from other brands, we have lots more cargo pants and cargo shorts coming our way! Which ones are your favourites? It’s so hard to pick but I am loving the J Brand Houlihan and the Rich & Skinny Groovy Cargo’s the most, I think… It’s a difficult choice!

What I want to know is, do you love this trend as much as I do?

The Rich & Skinny Groovy Cargo Leggings in Aloe (below) are so pretty!! I fell in love with these when I first saw them in the Rich & Skinny Fall 2010 Look Book. They are gorgeous! I love the pocket placements on the front of the legs and the little details like the 3 buttons. They are definitely a great take on the cargo pant. I really really want a pair!

The Paige Premium Venice Crop pant in Serengeti Green (below) is so casual and cute! It’s a different take on the skinny cargo as it’s cropped and it doesn’t have pockets down the legs but it’s still very pretty. I love the fact that Paige has kept it really simple and not overdone it. You could wear them with pretty much anything. They will be perfect for running errands in the warm weather.

The 7 For All Mankind Josefina Cargo Pant in Titanium (below) is another cargo pant that I think is really cute! It looks like it is made from a light weight fabric and I really like the pocket placements on these as well, I imagine they would be really flattering. Since it’s their Josefina skinny boyfriend cut I would imagine you could wear them baggy or tight and still look great! I like that they chose a purpley/grey colour as well.

The AG Adriano Goldschmied Ex Boyfriend Khaki Pants in Colonial Beige (below) are another cropped version of the cargo pants without the pockets on the legs. I like how they kept these ones really simple and classic as well. They used a different colour to the normal green too, I quite like the sandy shade of beige. Another perfect pant for running errands. Click here to buy these pants.

The L.A.M.B Cargo Pants in Moon Rock (below) are just what I would expect from Gwen Stefani’s line. They are a bit more of an extreme take on the cargo pants and I love it! I didn’t think I would like them that much, but when I saw them, I really did. They are a mix between a slouchy fitting dropped crotch cut and a pant but they add the cargo pockets on the legs and ruching as well. They are so unique, I haven’t seen anything like these before. Click here to buy these pants.

The Current/Elliott The Skinny Cargo Jeans in Combat (below) are a more classic cargo style pant, a lot like the Rich & Skinny and the J Brand Houlihan pants. You can’t go wrong with the basic cut of the skinny cargo. I really like the washed out khaki colour, it looks like they are really worn in. They don’t have any ankle zips but they look very pretty! I like them a lot, I hope we see them on celebs soon. Click here to buy these jeans.

The Dylan George Anja Cargo Pant in Black (below) is just one of the cargo styles from the brand, there are lots more to come. It fits more like a straight leg version of the skinny cargo pant and is a bit more baggy. I think they could be cute if you pair them with sandals, not the Converse style shoes like on the model.
