"The 1990's cargo pant loved by girl bands like All Saints and the Spice Girls has been reimagined for 2022," explains Hello! Fashion's editor Jill Wanless, "Those baggy multi pocketed pants worn with chunky trainers and a midriff baring top were the go-to look for the girl power generation. Fast forward to now and parachute pants, a more lightweight iteration (named after their likeness to parachute fabric) are having a moment with fans like Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber."

How do I style parachute pants? 

According to Jill, "Look for technical fabrics (Ripstop) with an oversized fit and drawstring waist and ankle. And remember to keep it streamlined on top to balance your baggy bottoms."

What is the difference between Parachute Pants and cargo pants?

“The key difference is the fabric. Parachute pants being lightweight made from nylon, like parachute fabric,” explains Jill. According to Amazon their baggy wide leg long pants are made of polyester, they are a “soft, comfortable, skin friendly, soft and durable, lightweight design suited for everyday wear.”
