Along with all things Y2K — baby tees, mini skirts and low rise denim — cargo pants have been making a major comeback on the streets and in our favorite stores. Originally designed for military use, the cargo pant is easily recognizable for its many pockets and often relaxed fit. They can be styled a variety of ways, from graphic tees to corset tops and everything in between — a more laid-back alternative to your typical jeans or trousers.
Ready to jump in on the latest model-off-duty trend? We’ve got you covered with cargo pants in every shape, size and style. Whether you prefer slouchy low-rise, polished trousers or sleek faux leather, you’re sure to find the right fit for you. Below, shop our favorite cargo pant picks from Urban Outfitters, Abercrombie, ASOS, Good American and more — starting at just $36.
