We admire anyone who is willing to spend top dollar on pants that they love — even if it’s a fancy pair of cargo pants. There’s nothing wrong with pampering and splurging on yourself, but it isn’t always realistic for the best of us to shell out $250 or more on cargo pants.
Lucky for us, there are so many wallet-friendly yet fabulous cargo pants that have been tried and tested by shoppers on Amazon, Target, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Walmart, and other platforms. They certainly come very close to upscale items in terms of both style and quality.
The one we’re talking about today is the AOWEER women’s high-waisted cargo pants. Instead of spending a small fortune on a single pair of high-end cargo pants, you can score multiple pairs of these ones to perk up your wardrobe.
These cargo pants are a favorite among Amazon reviewers who not only rave about their super-low price point, but also say they’re “very comfortable”, “fit like a dream”, “look good as pictured”, and “definitely worth the money.” 6/26/2021. We’re also quite impressed by their combat-style look and versatility, making them a great gift idea for the lucky birthday girl.
One of the first things we noticed after unboxing these pants is the quality of stitching. The fabric looks and feels smooth, fabulous, and soft against the skin for silky, comfortable wear. Not just that; the cotton fabric is fairly thick and feels light to medium weight – we’re excited about the amount of warmth and coziness that emanates from these babies.
Amazon reviewer Ashley H says, “They are a super thick material! They feel study but still comfortable,” while another user adds that the pair “fits everything nicely.” 6/25/2021. It’s true that the material is on the thicker side, but they’re not so thick that they obstruct movement. This actually works in your favor, as the pants happen to be super durable.
The cargo pants have a zipper closure (say adieu to buttons – yay!), and the waistline is generally elastic. Quite impressively, the waist design goes perfectly with any wide belt, which allows the pants to hug better to the body contours and deliver a flattering fit.
We’d like to note, however, that most reviewers say that sizing with these cargo pants can be a hit or a miss depending on your current size. On the smaller side of the sizing spectrum, these cargo pants seem to fit snuggly, and therefore, we recommend that you order one size up if you’d like to whip up that characteristic baggy look.
Moreover, AOWEER women’s cargo pants come in two classic colors (as of writing): black and khaki. We found that these pants create a chic look when teamed up with an oversized sweater, a tucked-in t-shirt, an adorable crop top, or even a long-sleeved faux fur coat (like this one from Simplee).
They come in a full-length style, so our styling and shoe ideas for the cargo pants are endless. Obviously, we couldn’t resist a pair of combat boots, ankle boots, and winter/hiking boots – they’re simply a match made in heaven.
Our fashion-forward editor Mary tried them on with both sneakers and loafers – and wouldn’t you know it; they marry well! All that we needed to complete the look was simply put on our all-time favorite Carolina Herrera Good women’s perfume and a quality pair of socks.
The real treat is the set of pockets that AOWEER managed to fit into the design of these cargo pants. They’re large (seriously, huge). And we’re not the only ones who appreciate the roominess of these pockets. Cassie writes on Amazon that “these pockets are ROOMY. The ones at the top are pretty much the exact same as men’s chinos, and the cargo pockets are fully functional as well. Perfect for carrying your vaccination card around.” 6/26/2021.
When all’s said and done, what really impressed us about these cargo pants is their construction quality, especially the high-rise waistline design. Although they don’t come with a belt, these long cargo pants do feature a set of straps on either side. The straps make it effortless for us to switch between a low- and high-rise look – definitely, a great element when it comes to mixing and matching your outfits with these pants to create the ultimate look.
All in all, AOWEER high-waisted women’s cargo pants are fairly thicker than most models on the market, helping them feel more compressive, more durable, and look flattering. Even so, they’re reasonably stretchy, ultra-soft, and breathable, so they feel equally comfy to wear casually when running errands, or during light exercise.
