Celebrities were obsessed with the J Brand Houlihan skinny cargo pants this summer. Practically every hot young star owned a pair, and some even had them in two colors or more!
But judging from the sheer number of celebrities spotted in different washes of J Brand Houlihans, the most popular was obviously vintage olive — a gorgeous faded shade between gray and green. We’re also crushing on the Houlihan’s soft Japanese twill fabric, its army-inspired style, and its great, flattering fit.
Here’s something that’s got us crushed though: A pair of these ultra-popular skinny cargo pants goes for $230.00, which is worth maybe at least four pairs of pants for frugal fashionistas. Our love for the skinny cargo trend doesn’t extend as far as justifying spending that much cash on it, so that’s why I’ve come up with this list of the 10 best olive skinny cargo pants that are going for $60 or less.
Some have the ankle zip opening and the leg pockets, while others do not, but all of these have their own take on the very trendy skinny cargo pants. Which one do you like best?
Here they are arranged according to price (highest to lowest):
1. Seven 7 Olive Embellished Pull-on Cargo Pants, $62.96
These Seven 7 olive embellished pull-on cargo pants are a few dollars over $60.00, but I just had to include them. I love how these have button closures instead of the ankle zip, and the seamless back pockets give these a clean and feminine look for a pair of cargo pants.
These top-rated Sanctuary Peace skinny leg belted cargo pants were originally $118.00, but thanks to the 50% price slash, they are now only $58.90 and can be included in this list of 10 best olive skinny cargo pants.
3. Arden B. Skinny Cargo Pants, $49.00
These Arden B. skinny cargo pants might have the closest color to vintage olive. These also have the knee seams, the leg zippers, and the clean back pockets just like the popular J Brands.
4. Maxstudio Linen Cotton Stretch Slim Trousers, $48.00
This is Maxstudio’s best militarized slim pants. The linen fabric is cool and lightweight, but the cargo pockets and the metal hardware make these Maxstudio linen cotton stretch slim trousers more utilitarian.
5. Unionbay Belle Zip-Hem Stretch Skinny Cargo, $39.90
These Unionbay Belle zip-hem stretch skinny cargos are more rough and tumble, but I’m loving the price on these! These also come in faded black, which is close to the sharkskin wash of the J Brands.
6. Sound & Matter Cargo Color Pants, $29.99
These Sound & Matter cargo color pants were already inexpensive at $39.50, but now they’re just $29.99. Furthermore, PacSun is currently having a “Sale on Sale” deal, which gives an additional 50% off on items that are already on sale! That means if you get these Sound & Matter pants now, you can get them for just $14.99! Is that a great deal or what?
7. Tyte Twill Zipper Skinny Cargos, $29.99
Now, these are skintight jeans, but they’re perfect to wear under oversized tops or tucked into boots just like on the model.
8. Calvin Klein Jeans Belted Twill Crop, $29.50
These are a little loose for skinny cargo pants, but wear these with a tight tee and a pair of sneakers and you’re set to get some errands done in style. They look ultracomfy too!
9. Be Bop Olive Brown Belt Cargo Skinny Jeans, $29.00
Don’t you love it when you get free accessories? These Be Bop olive brown belt cargo skinny jeans come with a belt with every purchase, and all you have to pay for both is $29.00.
10. Southpole Belted Cargo Studded Skinny Pants, $21.99
Last but not the least are the belted cargo studded skinny pants by Southpole. Studded, embroidered, and ruched, these skinny cargo pants are more blinged out than usual.
