The utilitarian staple has been upgraded
Today’s cargo pants are not the grungy, low-slung trousers you once knew. Now they have taken on a new elegance. Teamed with a crisp white shirt and a pair of heels, they embody contemporary chic and can easily transition from the office to a night out with friends. Here are five pairs of cargo pants team MOJEH are currently loving.
These Tom Ford trousers have a slightly wider tapered fit that’s balanced by the super high-rise waist. They’ve been expertly tailored in Italy and blended with linen for a subtle slub finish. They’re accented with military-style gunmetal hardware and cargo pockets.
Lemaire’s pleat front trousers emulate pure minimal refinement. They’re coloured in a soft stone hue that’s versatile to wear and are cut from luxe linen to a louche tailored silhouette. Add a pair of black heels and a silk shirt for a chic yet sophisticated look.
Tailoring is a core component of Colville’s modern wardrobe offering, and these black cargo trousers offer a stylish translation. Exclusive to Matchesfashion.com, they’re made in Italy with a mid-rise waist that secures across the body with coordinating ties, then fall into straight legs that feature two flapped pockets on the back and two slip pockets on the front.
Haider Ackermann has such a way with tailoring that even the most casual silhouettes look smart in his hands. These track pants are cut from utilitarian beige cotton, patched and seamed throughout, and finally cropped so the tonal lining can peek through. Dress yours up with a blazer and heels.
Marni’s mustard-yellow cargo trousers follow an experimental yet sophisticated aesthetic. They feature a slim fit across the high-rise waist, then fall into wide legs that feature classic cargo-style pockets and self-adjusting ties. Contrast the dense wool with a whisper-weight blouse and chunky platforms.
