How to Style Cargo Jeans

Cargo jeans, also known as carpenter jeans, have made a notable comeback and are currently on trend for fall. Initially, I was a bit hesitant about the carpenter trend, but I’ve come to adore these Agolde jeans. They offer a flattering and modern fit that effortlessly complements various outfits. I typically wear a size 27 in these jeans, but they have a relaxed fit, so I could easily size down to a 26 for a snugger look. Today, I’m excited to share a diverse range of ways to style cargo jeans, showcasing their versatility and chic appeal. Additionally, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite cargo jeans from different brands, not just the Agolde ones featured in the photos, so you can explore different options and find the perfect pair to elevate your fall wardrobe.
