The 2000's trends are back (alright!), and with it brings the cargo comeback. Typically made from cotton and defined by a baggy silhouette and a multitude of utility pockets, women's cargo pants are the perfect melding of comfort, fashion and function.
Originated in the 1930's by the British Armed Forces, the military trousers took the fashion scene by storm in the early 2000's. Most notable for their deep and plentiful pockets, they were originally used for storing items like maps and battle dressings - a stark contrast to recent tiny handbags and women's clothing with faux or no pockets! With the resurgence of vintage style bottoms like carpenter pants and cargos, it seems that functionality is back in fashion.
