Good morning! Fashion shares the best way to wear cargo pants:

Cargo pants style with… a quilted vest

We take inspiration from influencer Pernille Teisbaek who served up major utilitarian vibes with pastel pink cargo pants alongside a padded gilet layered over a black polo neck.

Cargo pants style with… a mesh bodysuit

The gothic color palette is another look that is making its mark in this season’s trend forecast. We can’t do without mesh jumpsuits under low-rise cargo pants for a sense of depth.

Cargo pants style with… a micro shirt

Miu Miu’s scaled-down tops are all the rage right now, and a micro shirt paired with neutral high-rise cargo pants should be high on your dressing agenda this season.

Cargo pants style with… a sleeveless sweater

A pop of color alongside an otherwise monochromatic ensemble is a concept we can’t wait to recreate this fall.

Cargo pants style with… trendy mules

Dial up the drama with a pair of geometric mules to carry your cargo pants from day to night.

Cargo pants style with… a vibrant shoulder strap

Semi-sheer cargo pants paired with the drama of a striking accessory are such a shoutout this season.

Cargo pants style with… a headband

No outerwear, no problem. This fall, we’re braving the cold in the name of fashion – we’re serious about charcoal cargo pants paired with a classic black bandeau.
