Cargos. Like sweatshirts and sweatpants, this once strictly utilitarian piece has received the high-fashion treatment of late. From the low-slung cargo pants on Balmain’s spring runway to the celeb-magnet J Brand Houlihan on, well, everyone, it’s been a great summer for fans of this updated classic, and it isn’t slowing down for fall.
Though skintight cargos paired with a swingy tank, platform sandals, and oversized sunglasses have been ideal throughout the hotter months, the dusty khaki and olive green shades are right in step with fall’s military trend. Try a looser version by Current/Elliott with a draped tank and a structured blazer, and underline the ensemble with a predatory pair of lace-up high-heel booties. Or take your cue from this lookbook shot and give slouchy twill pants some structure with a crisp white blouse and tall suede boots, a perfect look for a more pulled-together season.
