I am absolutely crazy for skinny cargo jeans. They are my absolute jam. Hands down, the cargo jean style is my favorite when it comes to skinny jeans. I wear them year-round; they are not reserved for the spring or summer These jeans have earned the label “utility chic,” for good reason. As fab as they are they are still very practical. With very little effort these jeans transition well into multiple occasions helping to create very fly looks. I like to style them in all sorts of ways, far beyond a signature tee. I want to share with you some of my favorites - four ways to style skinny cargo jeans.
First let me further explain my love affair, if I can. I love the availability and functionality of the exposed pockets though they are impractical to actually use on skinny jeans. The bulk of trying to put anything into the cargo pockets of the skinny jeans would look ridiculous. However...the exposed pockets look good. I truly am crazy for skinny cargo jeans – I don’t want to wear them out which I would do, with zero shame. J Brand has a pretty dope, ankle-cut, black pair I am completely craving. I am this close to treating myself. I digress though. Back to the four ways to style skinny cargo jeans:
Go for a sporty, casual-chic look and rock the skinny cargo jeans with some casual, low-top sneakers. Converse are cool, but designers are definitely pushing the envelope when it comes to the sneaker game. Embroidered, platforms, metallic or finishes are just the tip-of-the-iceberg. They will definitely elevate your vibe, plus it can be comfortable to move around in. Why not have both - look good and feel good!
A mesh sweatshirt is another good look. The juxtaposition of the sexy sweatshirt and the skinny jeans based on menswear looks very stylish. Coordinating colors or contrasting colors does not matter. It's all about creating a look that fits your personality.
As I've said, these jeans are season-less for me. I don't care what time of the year it is, they will always be included in my rotation. That means they will get paired with one of my other favorite pieces, the bomber jacket. I've got way too many and I am always looking for new ways to wear them. This is one I like to wear without a shirt beneath since it's lightweight. It is an effortless combination with my cargo jeans.
I also like to rock a soft, flowy tank (as well as a fitted one) with my cargo jeans. This is my go-to look in the summer. Some killer heels, a tank that suits my mood and the day's occasion, big hair and my trusted, skinny cargo jeans. In my opinion, hashtag winning!
Tell me - is this one of your favorite styles of skinny jeans? How do you like to style them? Hope to "see" you in the comments. xx-C
