Style Me Saturday - Military Skinnies

A reader recently commented on THIS post that she loved the cargo skinny pants, but wasn't sure how to style them. I came up with a couple ideas, so I thought I'd share them and help this reader (and hopefully others) out! Here is her comment:

"I am loving those Victoria Secret skinny cargo pants. I'm dying to have them, but how would you style them?"

I was inspired by this look on Shopbop, which is a more casual take on these skinny cargo pants. For the Victoria's Secret version I would probably go with the honey wheat color, which will give you a more similar color to the J Brand version shown in the Shopbop Lookbook, but it wouldn't let me change the color on the model's photo. Pair these skinnies with a striped top from Asos (see widget below for some more alternatives), some oxfords, and a crossbody bag and you've got a great casual way to wear these skinny cargo pants.

If you want to dress the pants up a little bit, I think they would look cute with a feminine ruffled top like this Frances cami from J Crew. Add some heels and jewelry & you'll be in business! (Click on any photo below to purchase/for more info...except the ring which you can click here to view.)

Where can I find the Oxfords in the collage photo? When I clicked on the link it just brought me to a bunch of Steve Madden flats. Also, what kind of outfits can you wear Oxfords with? I haven't made the plunge yet, not sure I could pull it off.

Ashley - I just got your email. If you click on the shoes, it should take you to the ShopStyle page with the same collage. Click on the shoes again and it will open up the store window, but here is the direct link:


I will email you back some looks or post on the blog in the next few days.

Thanks! I'm loving the second look. I pulled the trigger on the pants last week and they are on their way to me. I'm so excited to try them out!
