Can I wear skinny cargo pants to work?

Q. I love the skinny cargo pant trend! How can I dress them up to make them appropriate for the business casual dress code at the office?

A. We are huge fans of this surprisingly flattering (and fun!) summer trend. Obviously, skinny cargo pants are appropriate for weekends and non-work environments, but incorporating them into your work wardrobe can be tricky. If you work in a business casual or casual office, we recommend pairing your skinny cargos with a feminine top, button down or blazer and a pair of heels. Save the tank tops and flip flops for your off hours, as these are too casual for any office. Here are some looks for inspiration:
