The Cargo Skinny: Yay or nay?

4.24.2010 WRITTEN BY Ashley T+P Blog Central

I’ll admit it, I wasn’t too keen on the cargo skinny look when I first got a glimpse of the trend at the Las Vegas Magic tradeshow back in February. The idea of bulging man pockets sewed onto the hips of bum-hugging skinnies seemed a little less than flattering. However, after seeing celebs like Rhianna rock the look so effortlessly and without adding unnecessary baggage to the thigh region, I am officially a convert. 

Chip & Pepper’s interpretation of this fun alternative to the typical denim skinny is totally on point: Lightweight twill offers comfort and stretch, while the side pockets add flair and functionality (for those nights out when you’d rather pocket your wallet than carry a purse). 

Opinions may vary when it comes to the skinny cargo, but one thing’s for sure: Army and military inspired duds are trends you will surely see for seasons to come.
