While some trends stand out from the rest, there’s been a pants style that has crept its way into our closets once again: cargo pants. Yes, the military-inspired canvas pants with giant pockets from the early 2000s are back in full swing. In fact, they’ve been gaining traction for a few seasons now—and their popularity shows no signs of slowing down this fall/winter season.
The Y2K casual trend has quickly become the cool yet comfortable alt to denim for many (the streets of NYC will back me up on this). And from wide-leg denim cargoes to low-slung silky iterations, they’re all over the current market. It’s easy to see why—they exude a fresh, comfortable, and indisputably cool vibe.
Out of the hundreds available to shop now, I shared the best 23 options below. You’ll find a variety of both styles and prices, so whether you pair them with pointed-toe kitten heels and a blazer to dress them up or a pair of Adidas Samba Sneakers and a relaxed sweater for casual occasions—these pants will be as versatile as your jeans.
