J Brand Houlihan Cargos in Action – Share Your Thoughts!

by Jaime on May 5, 2010

So, I’m breaking my own rules (kinda) and posting a celebrity shot. But there’s a reason.

After all the ranting and raving I did about the J Brand Houlihan Cargos, I finally found ONE shot of someone who looks good in them: Kate Bosworth.

There are a couple things at play that make these look better on her than most of us in the world.

1. The olive color is a MILLION times more attractive than that khaki. MILLION.
2. She’s rail thin. I’m not sure that even I, at a size 25, can look good in these. But they look good on her.

Maybe it’s because the zippers don’t really stand out as much. Or maybe because she styled it well (and she did… I would totally wear that outfit.. though maybe change the racerback tank to one that’s brown, not black.

So, does this change your mind about the J Brand Houlihan Twill Cargo Pants? Or are you still anti-Skinny Cargo? Share your thoughts in the comments!

Love,
JP

While I DO like the Olive colored Houlihan Skinny Cargos in theory, I still think that, in a size 29, I can’t pull those off. There’s no way. I don’t usually say that about something without at least giving it a try, but this is one I can tell by looking. The pockets would stick out funny on my legs. I think you could pull them off though :)

The pockets are so big on these … and they’re not there to serve a function. I can’t imagine using the pockets to hold anything, other than dollar bills, credit cards or a sample packet of sun block. Which seems ridiculous, anyway, when you’re toting a huge purse. I like the olive color better, though, and I really do like the black with it. I just don’t get the shoes.

I guess I’m in the minority, but I really like the look, which seems to be inspired from Balmain’s Spring 2010 collection:

I just bought a size 26 in Vintage Olive at Anthropologie. I really like the look, and diagonal lines in the seams and the zipper gives it an edge. While the more classic look of cargoes is loose, I’m a little tired of the lines of that look, it’s the boyfriend jean.

There was another pick of a celeb wearing olive skinny cargos that I liked, but of course I don’t remember now.

I think Kate looks great. They are not for me but I think they are cute on the right people.
