Adopting a “trend” is okay, just don’t become a victim of it. As long as you’re blending it naturally with your own personal style, you can add new elements to your look without trying to be something, or someone, that you are not.
As I write all the time, the key is to find your own personal style and undertsand what works – and what doesn’t – for you.
It’s no secret that cargos are popular right now, and for good reason. They’re rugged, functional and versatile.
Here, 3 ways to pull off the new breed of slim cargo pants.
1. KISS Principle
It’s a transitional time of year. Not warm, not cold. Perfect to start introducing some lightweight knitwear.
As you may remember, I like to wear knits on their own. It’s a comfortable, simple and confident look.
Bonus Tip: Mixing earthtones can make an outfit appear masculine and appropriate for Fall.
Bonus Tip II: Most cardigan have the same neckline as a v-neck t-shirt or sweater. But if you’re uneasy about wearing it on it’s own, throw a thin layer under it (tank, henley, t-shirt, washed button-down, etc).
Bonus Tip III: Don’t forget the pockets are functional for storage. Every time I put these on I find some hidden treasures in the pockets from their last wear.
