This Throwback Pants Trend Is Back—And Better Than Ever

We’re just going to say it straight up: Cargo pants are back and our usual lineup of jeans have taken the backseat. The utility-inspired design is a refreshing alternative to denim when we want to shake things up, and the tomboy aesthetic reads cool, unfussy and a bit edgy. Both affordable brands and designer labels are offering an array of silhouettes and shades—olive green, khaki, charcoal and camo—to wear with everything from tees, sultry bodysuits, chunky knits and polished blouses. Noteworthy styles include belted high waists, joggers and roomy wide-legs. Ahead, shop the pant trend from our favorite selects.
