Rise of Cargo Pants for Women & How to Style them in 2022

Whether you love cargo pants or have an indifferent opinion about it, believe it or not, they have made a block-buster entry under the Y2K umbrella. But what’s different this time? They have dominated an era and at one time, that’s all you could see on those Y2K oriented tv shows whether it’s men or women. However, they have always been associated with laid-back and particularly convenient outfits such as lounge-wears. Let’s debunk the common perception about these pants first; yes, they are convenient to slip into and they definitely have a laid-back vibe to them. But this time around, the world has witnessed a new wave of cargo pants aesthetics that will change our minds about them. (We definitely aren’t saying convenient clothes should be looked down upon!)

Whether it’s an A-lister like Kendall Jenner or other social media influencers/models, one thing is for sure, these cargo pants are a need of the hour which is why they are seen everywhere. The reason being is, they offer different functionalities now that they are available in different styles. Top designers like Givenchy and Esabel Marant have crafted their own designs that ooze a Y2K vibe and a modern touch. Anyone who’s down with trying cargos on occasions other than lounge-time chilling can also have a number of options to choose from to rock this trend.

Here are a few questions that might be surfacing our minds when it comes to the functional part of cargos:

Are cargo pants business usual?
Do they offer different style options?
What could we possibly wear with the cargo pants?

Yes, these are all important questions!
