The Cargo Pants & Shorts You *Need*

Pocket enthusiasts, let’s celebrate – the cargo comeback is here! Cargo pants and shorts are officially back with all the comfort, versatility, and sweet Y2K style we’ve been dreaming about.

Ready to see the latest looks from AE? Let’s (car)go! 

Wide-Leg Cargo Pants

Oversized pockets? Check. Juuust enough stretch? Gotchu covered. That laid-back baggy fit you can’t get enough of? Ohhh yeah. These slouchy, super high-waisted pants check every box for a comfy cargo staple. Choose your fave color (we’re *loving* mauve) and pair ‘em with a cropped halter top for your next night out! Wide-leg pants are the fit of the season.

Baggy Cargo Joggers

These baggy joggers are the ultimate everyday pants – made with soft twill fabric and a drawstring waist keep you comfy all day, while a relaxed fit pairs perfectly with a simple cropped tee. Plus (and we can’t stress this enough)… they have pockets. Lots of ‘em.

Straight-Leg Cargo Pants

The throwback trend meets the utility trend in our ’90s-inspired Straight Cargo Pant, take all the best of both to give you an easy, flattering, straight-leg fit and pockets aplenty in need-now neutral hues.

Pair ‘em with a graphic tank top and a flannel for extra ‘90s grunge vibes.

Women’s Cargo Shorts

Never fear – the utility & cargo trends show up in the shorts world, too! Cargo shorts are all about comfort, convenience, and of course – extra pockets. Try cargo shorts in your fave length – from short short to midi to Bermuda – and create a look that’s all you with spring and summer tops like tank tops and graphic tees.

Lived-In Cargo Pants

What is “lived-in,” you ask? Picture the perfectly broken-in feel of those cargo pants you’ve kept around for years, and then imagine getting that same comfort in a new pair from the very first wear. Get them in your fave skinny, slim, and straight-leg fits.

Tip: when cooler nights call for layers, rock straight-leg or baggy cargo pants with a Bonfire Fleece Hoodie and a Denim Jacket. 

Men’s Cargo Shorts

These cargo shorts stack trends on trends, combining the classic cargo look with in-demand prints and colors like camo, cool khaki, and more. From the shorter hits-above-the-knee 5″ length to the longer below-the-knee 12″ inseam, our cargo shorts have you covered with that just-right fit you’re looking for.

Grab a pair in your favorite color or pattern and wear ‘em with a Super Soft Graphic T-Shirt
