Everyday Combat

There is something quite effortlessly sultry about the combat trouser (cargo pants), a 90’s trend that girl group All Saints were famous for. It was refreshingly sexy at that time because the girls looked good laid-back and comfortable as compared to the Spice Girls who were known for their over-the-top glamour outfits. The combat style on women catered to a different set of males who thought of sexiness as something effortless and that could be why the style was relatively prevalent for the longest time.

Last year, a few premium denim companies tried to revive the trend back and it got the seal of approval from some commonly style-stalked hollywood celebrities like Ashley Tisdale, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, etc. With 90’s trends coming on strong at the moment, this is one style to definitely consider loving again. After all, who would deny comfort and cool, especially now that it’s back in everyone’s favourite skinny leg style?

Even if you do not fancy the big pockets on the combat trousers, you can easily cheat by getting jeans in an earthy tone like the Siwy Hannah Slim Crop in Rebellion, a personal favourite of mine.  I would pair with a slinky romantic top and heels or even combat boots if I wanted to take the look to the next level.

What could be a better way to start the new year with a new effortlessly sexy look? Check out for the following combat styles by Siwy on Manhattanite!
