Celebrity Look: Skinny Cargo Pants  

5 Comments 07 April 2010


It sounds like a contradiction, doesn’t it? Skinny cargo pants. Yes, there is such a thing, and it’s a hot look this year, with Ciara, Hilary Duff and Khloe Kardashian rocking the look. Guess it’s a good thing neither of them has to carry much cargo, huh? Here are three looks to try.


First are the J Brand Houlihan Skinny Cargo Pants in many colors a celebrity favorite! You may actually have a hard time getting these right now because they’re selling out quickly. They’re low rise, with a 29 inch inseam and a 10.5 inch leg opening, and they’re made of 98% cotton with 2% Lycra for fit forgiveness.  They come in Vintage Olive, Black, Sahara, Vintage Navy, and Sharkskin.


7 For All Mankind is in on the trend too, with the Josefina Cargo Pants. Fairly low-rise, but not dangerously so, they feature side pockets, button-flap back pockets, and side cargo pockets. They’re made of a cotton / Lycra blend and have an inseam of about 29 inches.

Taller girls may want to check out Victoria’s Secret’s take on the trend. With a 33 inch inseam, these skinny cargo pants have a skinny leg with a 13.5 inch opening, and they fit low on the waist. They also feature front slant pockets, two-button closure, side cargo pockets, and back flap pockets.

Like the other styles mentioned here, they’re made of a cotton / Lycra blend. All these looks can be made to go from day to night with a simple change of top. Start with a fitted tee during the day in black, white, or a bright like hot pink. For night, exchange it for a simple, sequined tank and add sexy shoes.

Would you wear this trend?

  1. I just don’t think so.. Not very flattering at all, the bulky pockets add weight on the thights, not a look most women are going for!
