Cargo pants are an American classic. If you've seen a hiker or watched one of the early seasons of The Simpsons, you've seen cargo pants. It's hard to imagine hiking without having pockets to place items in. 

Cargo pants are loose-fitting and meant for comfort and outdoor activities. Over the years, slimmer versions with smaller pockets emerged to fit a much more modern streetwear take on the classic pair. 

You might think that this piece goes only with casual fits. We are here to disprove that. There are numerous ways to style these bottoms for any occasion and any season.

COLOR BLOCK

Paint the town red. Have fun and play around with color this summer. If you think red and green are only good as Christmas palates, think again. Grab your favorite white sleeveless top and make a statement with a vibrant pair of jeans. Keep it casual with sneakers and you’re all set to do some more shopping with the girls.
