How To Wear: Cargo Jeans

What used to be a totally 90's vibe to rock is making 2023 THE year of the cargo comeback. Multiple pockets are a must. Want a style that's to stand out from the casual pants picks that are everywhere? Try our cool cargo jeans. In a similar shape to our mega-fanned wide legs, they come in lots of colors like olive (seen here on Faye), giving the illusion of classic cargo pants. Go casual for day: style with oversized comfy basics and neutral accessories to really make the olive pop.


To dress up this denim for evening, it’s all about super feminine fabrics and details to contrast with the cargo’s utilitarian look. Faye’s go-to evening look? Lace and layers. Layer with lace bodysuits or corset tops and add heels for sultry style that doesn’t compromise comfort. Don’t forget an oversized faux leather jacket for extra warmth.

How To Wear: Flared Jeans

The biggest decade-defining denim style? Has to be the flare. The slightly bell-bottom 70's style often has deep sunk roots in our denim collections the past few years thanks to flared jeans’ flattering fit. Laura kept her everyday style neutral, mixing creamy tones and textures like our fleece bag and loafers to put the focus on those flares.


Night out? She’s all about blue hues. Go for an oversized poplin shirt to balance proportions. Slip on open-toe heels to show off some skin and elongate your legs. Finish with our pearl-accent handbag and gold jewelry for a little luxe.
