Style Advice of the Week

Admit it: You haven’t worn your cargo skinnies in awhile. You were super excited about them a few seasons ago and stocked up with shades of army green, khaki and maybe even vintage wash plum. But now they’re folded up neatly in a drawer somewhere.

Since the fad has somewhat faded, wearing them with moto boots that give off the whole grunge vibe would be so last year. But this Fashionista has reinterpreted the trend with oxford wedges, an oversize scarf and an asymmetrical tee. This way, the pants don’t take center stage. They bring a casual feel to the outfit in a different way than your favorite pair of jeans would. Plus, neutral hues serve to complement the leopard print. In short, it seems like it might be time to search for your cargos.

If you never invested in a pair, J Brand’s Maverick style comes in just the right olive tint. But if you’re one of those girls who likes to stick to straight up denim, the pocket detail on these Rag & Bone jeans will make for a look that’s just as rugged.

The draping hem of this Fashionista's tee takes focus away from the fit of her pants and helps to mesh all of her pieces together smoothly. So make sure you've got a slouch top with a similar silhouette. Here are options from La Garçonne and Couture Candy.

Once you’ve worn this getup, remember that you could still always rock your cargo coat. Check out this FIT Fashionista for a little inspiration. Her anorak doesn't take away from the detail on the edge of her cowboy booties – or the pants, belt and knitwear that complement it perfectly.
