Oftentimes fashion trends aren’t the most practical or comfortable—but not this time. The cargo pant is extremely practical and comfortable. After all, they are all about pockets! With many styles that skew baggy (but not all), the latest styles of cargo pants can be both casual or elevated, with many street style icons such as Hailey Bieber and Emily Ratajkowski proving so. 

From affordable options to high-end designer labels, the heavily pocketed pants are having a moment. Body hugging tops can help balance the proportions of the roomy bottoms, or you can simply settle into the oversized look with long button-downs and bulky jackets. Whether you lean into the pant’s utilitarian style or pair them with more whimsical pieces, the cargo pant is endlessly versatile. Check out some of our favorite styles below.
