From baby tees to mini skirts, it's no secret that a lot of Y2K fashion trends are making a comeback. But more recently, there has been one particular trend that has been gaining traction on and off the runways. And that's the cargo pants.

While the style has been associated with tacky tourist dressing or bad dressing in the 2000s, the cargo pants have undergone a new look with a more streamlined design that's more flattering and versatile.

In fact, celebrities like Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa have included the pocketed pants into their everyday wardrobe. It's functional, stylish and it's quickly gathering attention for its oversized, androgynous vibes.

More recently, we have also started to notice more Gen Z's sporting the look on TikTok, which is why it has become the key comeback piece to create the perfect cool girl aesthetic.
