Leading Streetwear Trend: Cargo Trousers

Cargo trousers have long been a military and workwear staple.

Cargo pants were first worn in 1938 by British military personnel as part of their Battle Dress Uniforms. In the 1940s, the US military started to wear them too. For the next 50 years or so, cargo pants were pretty much only worn in armies or as workwear.

In the 1990s, cargo pants burst onto the fashion scene. As with many fashion trends, there was a trickle-up trend from hip-hop artists wearing cargo pants in the mid-90s. Soon they became one of the defining trends of the decade in both high street and high-end fashion.

While the trend died down after the 90s, it's back and doesn't look to be disappearing anytime soon. Brands like Replay and Billionaire Boys Club's most recent collections have included a range of cargo pants. Across the board, cargo pants are proving popular with men and women, and it's easy to see why. While traditional cargo trousers were khaki green, you can get them in almost every colour now.

Alongside the range of colours, they're also available in different styles of fits. You can go for the classic fit, opt for a more tailored fit for a smart occasion or go baggy for a more relaxed manner. You can wear them with a hoodie, plain t-shirts, leather jackets — pretty much anything. Plus, they're comfortable and practical with their soft fabric and pockets.
