Like the flavour of olives or the taste of red wine, some things have to grow on you—that’s the case for me with this particular trend. Between the influx of outfits on Instagram and the taking over of various new-in sections, cargo trousers are impossible to ignore at the moment. Often labelled as “ugly” or, if you were to ask me four months ago, “too ’90s for its own good,” it’s a look I never thought would win me over. Then I saw the Celine spring/summer 2022 runway show, where a pair of cargo trousers—camouflage ones at that!—changed my entire outlook on them. 

Style Notes: Hannah Lewis was one of the first to champion the cargo trouser trend and has plenty of looks to re-create over on her feed. My favourite? The one where she wears them with an oversized blazer and Prada slingbacks.
