These are a cute take on the super popular Cargo trend. They're a bit more streamlined and have the pockets on the front, which are a bit more flattering to the thighs/hips than the pocket on the side. The seaming is also really flattering. They are pretty skinny cut though. They're made from a soft, lightweight material, which gets softer with wear. They fit true to size and are pretty skinny. I think the material will definitely get softer with wear. I'd say that if you want to try out cargos, this is a perfect way to go, since the pockets aren't too obvious, that it can still be classic, even after the trend has passed.
