Cargo pants often get a rep for being too tricky to wear, and I don't blame people from shying away. No one wants to end up looking like they're trapped in the wrong era. While celebrities like Jennifer Aniston have been wearing theirs for years, there's a newer generation in town like Billie Elish, Dua Lipa, and Kaia Gerber who have all managed to make the style look fresh. If you're wondering how to pull them off in 2020, we've got you covered.
Fun fact: some of our editors were inspired to give the trend a try after seeing Emily Ratajkowski rocking a pair from Dickies. (The outcome was pretty spectacular, I must say.) The great thing about black cargo pants is that they will match just about everything in your closet. Whether you want to rock a sporty look and wear them with a crop top and Nikes or make them look preppy in a blazer and kitten heels, there's plenty of ways to style them.
