The Los Angeles hills are alive with a surplus of army garb. Cargo looks seem to be marching down every corner of the city, from shorts to tops to dresses in neutral tones like khaki and army green.

Pants are the most popular of the cargo options, appearing in both baggy and skinny styles, and finished with oversize utility pockets. The shoe option is endless with the trendy trousers, as almost any style – heel, wedge, flip flop, army boot – works with the pant trend.

Military-inspired jackets are also a SoCal staple (and a perfect Colorado layering piece), and are being paired with everything from graphic tees and skinny jeans to formal dresses. The cargo jacket is versatile and practical, making it an investment item for seasons to come.

Cargo is this season’s black green, so get in your car and go get some.
