For our J Brand post this month, the team asked me to style their Grayson cargo pant in three different washes: Vintage Grey, Vintage Natural and White. I thought I would do things a little differently with this post and show you how versatile cargo pants can actually be. I chose a girly look with wedges, a casual look with sneakers, and then a chic look with flats. Each of these outfits look great with the Grayson cargo and it proves just how easy they are to wear. The looks are polished and feminine, yet casual and effortless.
For my first outfit above, I styled the Grayson in Vintage Grey with some beige and metallic wedges, an oversized white shirt, a beige YSL clutch and gold bangles to finish it off. I can definitely see this look being worn on a summer day, perhaps out shopping or to lunch with some friends. The outfit is free-flowing yet cohesive, making it the perfect option for elevated daywear.
For my second, I styled the Grayson in White more casually. When I saw the white cargo pants, I immediately thought: heeled sneakers and pastel tones. I paired the pant with Isabel Marant sneakers, a Rebecca Minkoff pink Mini Mac, a Wildfox sweater, and accessorized with sunglasses and a necklace. I love how toned-down and casual this outfit is. I could definitely see this on someone like Jessica Alba or Alessandra Ambrosio.
For my final look, I styled the Grayson in Vintage Natural with a chic twist. I chose to pair the cargo with contrasting flats, an oversized brown cardigan, and accessorized with a Michael Kors watch and bag. This is definitely something I envision for someone working in a fashionable office. The look reminds me of what Olivia Palermo might wear. Even though they are comfortable cargo pants, they can still be dressed up and work place appropriate.
