Versatile Style: Victoria’s Secret Marisa Crop Pant

I’ve recently been assessing the column and noticed that it’s severely lacking pants, so that was my mission for this week. Summertime is all about lightweight, flowy fabrics that allow your skin to breathe. Even though most of my pants-wardrobe consists of jeans, I try to remember that and pick up a few pairs of lighter pants for hot summer days and nights. Cargo-style pants are huge right now, especially after the release of J Brand’s Houlihan cargo. After searching for a lightweight cargo that was also budget-friendly, I came upon the often overlooked Victoria’s Secret website and hit the jackpot.

The Marisa Crop Cargo from Victoria’s Secret is the perfect summer bottom. It’s lightweight, trendy and comes in a rainbow of colors. They actually make this style in a few other fabrics too, including a super light linen. The cargo pockets are perfectly placed and designed to flatter your curves instead of add bulk. However, most people have no idea how to make them work at night. And that’s where I come in.

Let’s start with daytime:

Cargo pants are an easy way to change up your daily rotation of jeans and shorts. Throw on a loose fitting tank in a neutral shade and a pair of earthy sandals. The woven bag has a hippie-chic vibe, but the pop of color makes it interesting. Top off with leather wrap bracelets and a pair of fun sunnies!

And now evening:

While you can’t get away with wearing cargos to a super-fancy restaurant, they are totally appropriate for drinks with the gals or a more casual date. Throw on a sheer printed blouse (I love leopard) — tank top or exposed bra is up to you! Tuck the blouse in for added polish. Next, add a pair of funky, neutral pumps or booties to keep your legs looking long. The super girly purse works to offset the sporty-ness of the cargos. Keep jewelery simple and feminine – giant jewels and pearls are perfect! And that’s it!

If you’re loving the Marisa Crop Pants from Victoria’s Secret, they’re available here for about $23! What a steal! Don’t forget to check them out in other fabrics.
