Looking to refresh your little one’s wardrobe essentials for the new year ahead? Keep scrolling for our stylish AND versatile mini-me must-haves! Cost per wear is more important than ever and if there’s one wardrobe staple that is certain to give you great value for money, it’s the cargo trouser.

What Are Cargo Trousers?

Also known as combat trousers, this casual trouser option is differentiated by large outer pockets and a relaxed silhouette. This bottom half option is a great alternative to jeans and chinos when your little one wants a looser fit and plenty of room to stash all of their precious cargo (a.k.a toys and treats!)

Kids Cargo Trouser Outfit Ideas

It will come as no surprise that the cargo trouser’s silhouette lends itself to virtually all top half options, hence why they're such a highly praised staple in kids and adults wardrobes alike. For classic cargo styling, it’s the khaki and neutral tones that you’ll want to add to their wardrobe. Style with slogan tees, sweatshirts and knitwear and layer up in the chillier temperatures with puffer coats and gilets for an all-weather appropriate look.
