With the rise of streetwear comes a resurgence of ’80s and ’90s fashion. Some brands have brought back old trends but with their own twist. Another recent fashion resurrection is that of cargo or utility pants. Yes, the trousers slapped with functional pockets are back.
Rihanna is feeling the trend as she wore a baggy pair with zip closure pockets. Hmm, we wonder what she kept in them.
Liza Soberano wore them too with a red crop top and black sock boots. Very on trend, Liza.
