The revival of Nineties and Noughties fashion trends may have many of us horrified at the thought of unearthing our long-forgotten low-slung jeans, tiny T-shirts and mini skirts, but it’s not all bad. Case in point: the return of the humble cargo pant, and just in time for that tricky transitional season. Versatile, breathable and downright cool.

But banish all thoughts of your old Ed Hardys, for the 2022 cargo pant has had a high-fashion makeover with ultra-luxe fabrics, clever detailing, ultra-modern cuts and a variety of fabulous shades. It’s the latest celebrity obsession: everyone from Hailey Bieber, Bella Hadid and Zendaya to Rihanna have been spotted rocking the trend recently – and they’re a great source of inspiration for how to style them up or down.

High-rise satin cargo pants

These ultra-luxe cargo pants were the stars of Tom Ford’s SS22 show and come in a range of jewel tones, but this classic green pair is our favorite. Simply add a little white tee for a cool daytime look, or go full Y2K by adding chainmail.


Raven straight-leg low-rise stretch-woven trousers

These low-rise cargo trousers are the perfect pairing for a Miaou corset.

Dion Lee’s various cargo pant designs are a fashion insider favorite. Wear them loose and flared for a breezy daytime look, or belt at the ankle and add stilettos.


Loose-Fitting Cargo Trousers

ZARA – £ 45.99

Classic khaki, elasticated waistband, loose and flowy, these are the perfect cargo pants to breeze through the warmer months in.


Belted wool-blend wide-leg cargo pants

Bottega Veneta

£ 1,045.00

This Bottega style is so versatile: easy to dress up for elegant occasions, slouchy enough to wear comfortably through the day, and great with boots and a leather jacket come winter.


Finley Organic Cotton Heavy Cargo Pants

Ninety Percent – £ 105.00

One of our favorite sustainable fashion brands has created the ultimate office-appropriate cargo pants in a chic white shade.


Wide-Leg Cargo Trousers

This deep burgundy shade speaks to the summer goths out there as a stylish alternative to black.


The Mimi Bottoms in Slate Green

The sheer number of times these Peachy Den trousers have sold out since launching earlier this year is testament to the staying power of the cargo pant trend. Even better, they’re made from recycled nylon and feature adjustable toggles at the waist and ankle for both comfort and style.

This pale brown neutral tone will look particularly cool with a post-holiday tan, paired with a crisp white shirt.


Parachute Tapered Trousers

Dion Lee – £ 370.00

Wear with a cropped corset and sky-high heels for a standout evening look.

Zara – £ 45.99

Low-waisted, super-long and silky, these Zara trousers beautifully bring the Y2K trend into the modern day.


Viola High-Rise Wide-Leg Cargo Pants

This New York brand is all about designing breathable yet chic clothes for summers spent in the city, and they’ve hit the nail on the head with these beige cargo pants. Just add a T-shirt and sandals, and you’re good to go.
