But you had not a care in the world as you danced the night away to the All Saints, TLC and Britney – all card-carrying members of the cargo crew.
Staying true to fashion’s 20-year trend cycle, these utilitarian trousers are now back on the map (specifically, Milan). At Fashion Week yesterday, model sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid took to the runway in contemporary styles – the former in a silky, tapered leg by Fendi, the latter in a belted wide-legged interpretation at Alberta Ferretti.
Before you cringe at the return of yet another relic from one of fashion’s less forgiving eras, consider this: perhaps in today’s lightning fast-paced world, we need cargo pants more than ever. They’re simple, comfy and will cart around all your devices. Just the thing for the modern woman’s wardrobe.
