The Battle of the Skinny-Cargos


Congratulation J Brand, your Houlihan skinny-cargos are the summer's must have pant. Who ever is in charge of PR over there needs a raise because I haven't been able to open one magazine without a mention somewhere, seriously. Everyone knows I love good pair of J Brands, but I just couldn't justify spending the $228 for pants I know I'd only where a handful of times. Granted the Houlihan's do have that amazing seam at the knee that I swear to you has the ability to make any pant great, but still they were a solid C-Note out of my range. Instead I settled on a pant that had almost all of the detailing I was looking for at less than half the price, Level 99's World Over Cargos. I didn't even bother to try on the J Brand Houlihan's because I didn't want to torture myself, so I can't compare but the two, but Level 99's were amazing on.


I strongly suggest you go down a size in these. And if price wasn't enough, being able to fit into a size 26 for the first time since high school was just another reason I practically ran to the register.

World Over Cargos $98 VS. JBrand Houlihan's $228

Don't kid one's self, unless you have legs that start under your arm pits, this look must be worn with a slight heel to pull it off.

Definitely wearing them today with ballet flats - way to take all the wind out of my size 26 sail!

did anyone see Miss Aldridge wearing these on Sea of Shoes awhile back? I'm convinced it started the craze. ShopBop keeps selling out and restocking them. Good call on this madness.

just got them in "beige"- but it's really more like a dark taupe.
they are freakishly comfortable, almost like wearing a light legging.
good call K&T!

JCrew has similar ones with a little crop. And they have them in a bunch of colors. I am in love
