Cargo trousers are the swiss army knife of trousers. Where ordinary trousers might have a maximum of four pockets, cargo pants have a number of other storage options. One side pocket here, another one there ... really practical and looks great too.
Before cargo pants entered the world of regular folks, they primarily belonged to workers or those in the military. Police and emergency services also used these very useful trousers. But the military look that was once associated with cargo pants is now just one of many options. Today there are suitable cargo trousers for almost every taste. Bruce Wayne probably has a pair in his closet too.
What’s different with today's cargo pants
The 90s will always have a reputation for being the decade of cargo trousers. At that time there was hardly any street where one or two pairs of legs wrapped in cargo would be seen scurrying around. However, today's models differ from their predecessors such as the cool Brandit trousers. They are designed to be much more figure-hugging and the cuts of modern cargo trousers sit much tighter, especially around the back. They have never been so sexy!
Cargo celebs and tricks to wear
Famous cargo wearers include Arnold Schwarzenegger, Christina Aguilera, Avril Lavigne, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. Incidentally, it is not true that cargo trousers are married to hip-hop: the shadow world has also adapted these trousers. A reporter was once surprised to find that guests of a Gothic bar in Mexico obviously had a preference for cargo pants, which look really hot in combination with matching shirts. Some believe that the tight cut of modern cargo trousers cries out for a tight top. But experience has shown us that wide tops also go well. As with everything else, the same applies here: Find your own style or shop the trendy Dickies Trousers!
Speaking of style ... a few suggestions
The Hudson ripstop models appeal to the adventurer. Here you will find camouflage patterns that underlie the classic army look. Ideal for survival fans who want to move through the undergrowth. Steampunks and children of the night should pay extra attention to the Rebelplant pants. Anyone who wears such cargo trousers is making a clear statement.
The vintage trousers are true all-rounders. With the right shirt and lumberjack boots you get a rough, natural look. If shoes and tops are replaced, something completely different will result, depending on the style. Rough, washed-out designs are just as popular and this rocky look suits the survival camp just as well as a visit to the zoo with your kids. A pair of cool leather shoes and these cargo pants can also be worn at work. But be careful: the boss might get jealous ...
