I know you must be like, “OMG Veronika is wearing khaki cargo pants!”, right now. Yes, I am! And yes, I couldn’t believe I actually hit the purchase button for these pants either. But I’m happy I did. As I realized that green cargos can be quite wearable pants. In fact, khaki cargo pants can instantly make you look badass chic fashionista, once you wear them like this. With a black blazer, a silky black blouse, black bag and, wait for the best, the white cowboy boots.
YES! THESE ARE CARGO PANTS. AND THEY ARE IN KHAKI GREEN
I must admit, I never ever thought I would be wearing cargo pants again. Sure, I wore them as a little girl, somewhen in the 90s, when cargo pants were actually the only pants you could get in the local store. You know, small town boutique where you can’t get anything but 5-year old stuff? No, wait! I’m doing injustice to that store owner and my mother who bought those cargos for me. Cargo pants were actually fashionable back in the 90s.
Anyway, the thing is that I didn’t like cargo pants then. And couldn’t even imagine having these fake workwear pants hanging there in my closet. Well, they would be probably folded in the bottom of some drawer. Because you know, khaki colour and all these pockets just don’t look great hanging next to this pleated skirt.
But that’s not the point. The truth is that I was crossing myself every time I saw someone wearing cargos pants. Seriously, I have actually been doing this. And yes, Rosana, I was like omg she is wearing her khaki cargos again every time I saw you wearing your cargo pants too. Like the entire high school.
But hey, don’t look like that! Cargo pants weren’t in style ten years ago. Not that this is the only thing that matters. But you know, fashion trends make ugly pants legit.
Anyway, I’m not like this anymore. Because cargo pants are in fashion now.
However, Rosi, if you still have those khaki cargo pants in your closet, I do hope you don’t wear them with that same striped sweater. And no, not because vertical stripes are the print that is out of the style this season (ps. check AW 2018/19 print report if you forgot this important detail), but because you would simply look chicer wearing cargo pants like this. With black boyfriend blazer and white ankle boots.
HOW TO LOOK LIKE A BADASS CHIC FASHIONISTA IN YOUR KHAKI CARGOS
So, Rosana dear, this is for you! To make sure your old khaki cargos finally match your badass mind. Because girl, you rock! And now it’s time you look fashionable in your cargo pants too.
All you need to remember is to style your cargo pants with a tailored blazer and chic cowboy boots. Wait! You actually don’t even need to remember my style tip, just make sure you save or pin this fashion cheat sheet below.
Oh, and yes, if you don’t have your old cargos anymore, you can easily shop the same cargo pants I’m wearing. Mine are from Closed, and I got them here. (NOW ON SALE! -60 % OFF) Or find similar in the widget below. ALSO ON SALE! Or on sale shortly. But believe me, you will regret waiting for the sale season.

SHOP AND WEAR MY CARGO PANTS AS I DO
Again, these cargo pants I’m wearing here are from Closed (shop here). Honestly, I don’t know much about these brand. But I love these pants. Besides I bought them at Mytheresa.com so they must be all good. Plus, I got them on sale. -60 % OFF!
Ps. I’m adding another link for this cargo pants (here), just in case, my high school classmate Rosana lost her cargos and decided to be that B* (brunette I mean) who stole your pants just before you hit the shop button. As said, cargo pants are highly desired pants this autumn.
Check this widget below as well. I added cargo pants for under $50 too.
WHITE COWBOY BOOTS
Another IT item of the season, cowboy boots. White cowboy boots. Mine are from Ganni, and if you are lucky, you might still get them here. Fingers crossed you get your own pair of white western boots too.
BLACK BLAZER, BLACK BLOUSE AND BLACK BAG
Lastly the black part of my outfit. The most important actually. Since the cargo pants might look a bit too casual to wear them 9-5 from street to office and back, you better style your cargos with some quality black tailored and silky pieces.
Yes, if you style cargo pants with a quality tailored blazer and a silky blouse under the blazer, you can wear these pants to work too. And everywhere else. Even with cowboy boots. But you I warn you, this will make you look the chicest badass worker in your construction site. Pardon, in your office. Or wherever you work.
As it goes to the black blouse. You can get a similar, luxury black silk blouse here. Or get this one from H&M or another one from Iris & Ink for around $100 or less and style it with this gold-plated necklace. The effect will be the same.
Lastly the bag. You know my black top handle bag already. It’s old. And you can’t get it online anymore. But who cares! There is this stunning bag from, Boyy (the IT bag brand this season) that I’m sure you will love over here.
MORE WORKWEAR AND MORE FALL FASHION TRENDS
No, cargo pants are not the only workwear I’m wearing this season. Believe it or not, but you will see me wearing even more cargo clothes and workwear shoes this fall. In my way, of course. Because as you can see, cargo clothes can look quite feminine and chic too. If you only know how to style them. You can find one way to style your utility pants in surprisingly elegant and business casual way over here.
Ps. I will be wearing these khaki cargo pants for a night out this weekend too. Showing you exactly how on my LIKEtoKNOW.it feed. So be sure to follow my LIKEtoKNOW.it account as well.
