Denim cargo pants are pretty much one of the hottest things to happen to a pair of women's jeans this year since the addition of spandex. Add that to the fact that the military trend that fashion editors like to say is new every season is once again new, it seems only fitting to slap on some cargo pockets on a pair of skinnies to get a bonafied hit.
J Brand was one of the first companies to have the foresight to take advantage of this trend. There was a time when I couldn't go a week without talking about some celebrity who was wearing their Houlihan cargoes. I hope the designer who thought it up got a nice bonus for that one. Now other brands like AG Jeans, Chip + Pepper and most recently Black Orchid have come up with their own versions of the skinny cargo. Variety is the spice of life, or something like that, and it's going to be great to see how this trend will evolve with all of these brands putting their own spin on it.
The jeans featured are Black Orchid's "Black Rider" cargo jeggings in Equinox, Midnight and Eclipse. The jeggings retail for $150 and can be found at www.blacklabelboutique.com.
