Whether you call them cargo pants or utility pants, the style is making a big comeback and you may find yourself thinking how do you style these pants to fit your personal style. So it’s time to talk about how to style utility pants for women.
Cargo pants were a big trend in the 90s and as we are seeing, those 90s trends are making a big comeback with the classic looks taking a new modern turn. One thing that has changed about these pants is that they are less like the men’s style with the bulky pockets that stuck out even when there was nothing in the pockets. With the women’s styles, the pants are now more form fitting and accentuate the curves of every woman.
I’ve talked about wearing utility pants, and why they are great for petite women, previously because I adore the style. And now as the trend is coming back and expanding, we are seeing new styles that included exaggerated wide legs, different fabrics and prints, along with different shapes and high-waisted looks. The different styles are just amazing and there are so many options of women of different frames.
I’ve been loving the modernization of the classic 90s style that is making a huge comeback. So in this post, I’m going to be sharing a few ways that you can style utility pants for women while also sharing a few top styles that you can grab and add to your closet.
