The 90’s revival has been interesting to watch, as someone who was there the first time around. The resurgence of overalls, Tommy Hilfiger, fanny packs (updated with the name: ‘belt bag’) and flatform shoes have (for the most part) left me feeling like there wasn’t a place for me in this trend… until now. Cargo pants are back on the trend list, and this set from Rachel Roy are exactly what I was hoping for.
As a plus size woman, I’m always keeping an eye out for fit – and not adding unnecessary bulk where I don’t want it – namely, my thighs. So, in theory, plus size cargo pants are my nightmare. But this flowy, wide leg, cropped version is so lightweight and adds no bulk – that all my fears subside and I’m wearing these with confidence.
