In a Cargo Hold

Button-up: Wal-Mart, Black Cami: Target, Wood & Gold Bangle: Gifted, Cargo Pants: Levi’s, Snakeskin Heels: Target

I must admit that when skinny cargo pants started appearing I was skeptical but when I came across these Levi’s I decided it was time to give the skinny cargo trend a try. I was surprised by how comfortable and relatively streamlined they were. These were not the cargo pants of my childhood but a more flattering, figure hugging style with the appeal going far beyond their carrying capacity.

If I’m undecided about buying an item while shopping I try and see how many outfits I can mentally plan out using the new piece and my existing wardrobe. If I can’t think of at least two ways to wear the new piece with what I already have than it’s a no. So when I found myself undecided about these cargo pants I paused and found that not only would they work with what I already had but I could easily see them becoming part of my monthly and (possibly) weekly rotation. Oh and did I mention that they were only $14.98.

What new trends have you been slow to adopted? How would you style skinny cargo pants?

  1. I felt the same way! I wasn’t sure about skinny cargos but now I want them! I’m very tall though so I have issue finding the right lengths! They look awesome on you!

    • I swear pants are the trickiest thing to shop for! The sales associate at Levi’s encouraged me to try the skinny cargos on and gave me the final push I needed to buy them but now that I have em I love em!

  2. I never gave the skinny cargos a second thought—- but they look great on you and now I need to try out a pair myself!

    • Thanks Alexis! I got these at Levi’s on super sale but everyone seems to have their own spin on skinny cargos now so you should be able to find try a number of styles on!

  3. you look great in cargo pants! I didn’t know about skinny cargo pants. Blame it on thrift store shopping, my mind is becoming vintage too. Heels are perfect with this outfit, casual smart chic!

  4. I love skinny cargos. I would style similar to how you do and sometimes I put a loose fitting dressy silk tank with them also. I love the heels you are wearing…

    • Mimi, I love the idea pairing something as feminine as a silk top with a usually utilitarian piece like these cargos! Can’t wait to try it!

  5. I bought that shirt from Walmart last year (for only 1$!!!) and my husband tells me it doesn’t look good every time I wear it. I’m going to show him this post and tell him to shut up! 🙂

    • Hi Tasha, thanks for stopping by Wore Out! I love this button up (and wear it a ton!) I think I picked it up for three or four dollars on the way to Pond Fest last year and it’s been a staple ever since. My boyfriend D is usually pretty open minded when it comes to what I wear but there is one furry vest (that I love) that drives him crazy he hates it!
