Pockets are often at a premium. Especially when it comes to women’s clothing. Many of us feel the need to cart cute bags just so we’ll have a place to put our phones, keys, credit cards, etc. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were cool pairs of pants with plenty of pockets? Enter cargo jeans, the newest It item.
Sprung from everyone’s baggy pants and early aughts obsessions, pocket-boasting denim is trending. Which is interesting because we don’t always equate jeans with summer. But that’s why this craze makes sense. Both sartorially and economically. These jeans will still be in fashion come fall so you’ll get lots of wear out of them.
You need to decide a few things, however. First up, do you want to go the low-rise or high-waisted route. Coming in a close second is picking a wash. From faded, borderline bleached hues to darker denim, go with the one you feel most comfortable wearing the majority of the time. Like any other jeans in your wardrobe, you want to make sure they get enough of a workout to justify dropping some dollars on the trend. Lastly, you need to come to terms with silhouette. If you’re loving the baggy resurgence, opt for a slouchy pair. There are also wide-leg versions that make sure your legs at least have some breathing room.
