There has never been a question as to whether the Cargo Short was practical - with its handy pockets to carry essentials. But whether they’re on trend right now is another question.
We saw in late 2021 significant brands like Dior, Louis Vuitton and Jacquemus send cargo shorts down the runway, making a statement across the globe that cargo shorts are back in trend. But this time we saw some cargos in a different light with different pockets and placements across the garment.
