Out of the Kardashian trio, Kourtney, the eldest sister beholds a distinct minimalism that's carried throughout her street style assortment. Whether the Poosh CEO is spotted out and about by the paparazzi or decides to drop a casual #OOTD on Instagram, the 40-year-old steadily serves sultry yet polished outfits that set her apart from the rest of the KarJenner clan. The mother-of-three is big on suiting and structure, but knows when to show some skin — and Kourtney Kardashian's red cargo pants were the latest item to consider adding to your style lineup.

Striking a pose atop a pool table, the wellness guru cemented the power of a strong monochromatic moment, donning an all-red outfit in a post captioned "The Color of Money." Though there isn't a hint of green to be seen throughout the striking ensemble, the entrepreneur's message of luxury was loud and clear, thanks to a pair of fire red high-waisted leather cargo pants from French label, Jacquemus. The brand just celebrated ten years in business with an Insta-famous runway show set in the middle of a lavender field, and everyone from Emily Ratajkowski to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has professed their love for the luxury label via stellar summer style.

Kardashian's statement look is the latest celebrity love letter to cargo pants, a style staple of decades passed. Kendall Jenner is big on the utilitarian item, and has been seen in brown, denim, and camo versions over the years. But Kardashian's take on the '90s favorite is a bit more elevated, thanks to the plush leather material and an experimental pocket at the waist. The wide leg fit creates a decidedly structured silhouette that looks ideal paired with strappy pumps or sharp booties. Styled simply with a matching red tube top, the vivid pants did the heavy lifting for this look — and Kardashian kept her beauty vibe to a bare minimum.
