Both images show how versatile the cropped Cargo pant is, with a Spring appropriate ensemble of cashmere crew neck and Adidas shoes, or high Summer holiday attire of peasant blouse, tie espadrilles and woven clutch; both styles that are 'very me'.
The outfit I had originally imagined teamed them with a block heel, to elongate the legs, Victoria Beckham style, but, apart from date night or special occasions, wearing any heel at all doesn't figure in my 'everyday' uniform hence why they haven't been worn. So the bargain purchase, like so many do, has languished at the back of an overcrowded wardrobe for nearly a year!
As I've tried to be frugal, and more aware than ever of the impact fast fashion is having on our planet, the obvious way to inject newness into your wardrobe, without actually buying anything new, is to spend a fraction of the price getting a defunct item/items revamped.
Well tomorrow they will be fished out and taken to my local repair and alterations lady and you never know by next week they could get their first outing. I can't remember how much they were reduced to but including the alteration charge I do know they will be significantly cheaper than the pair of T by Alexander Wang pants I've used in todays outfit builder!
See more Cargo outfit inspiration here on my Pinterest board or better still do you have a never worn item in your wardrobe that could be reinvented? Click on the links to shop, have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.
