I know that I’m a fan of a particular style when I buy it in multiple colors. I originally bought these Valentine Cargos in the Blacksand (gray) wash and fell in love with them (see my review HERE). So I decided to purchase them in another wash. I went up one size in my other Blacksand pair because of lack of availability in my normal size, so I was curious to see how these would fit in my actual size. I found these Ocean Mist wash cargos in my regular size, and I am definitely much happier with the fit in this size. These do run large, at least one size. But I’m guessing they were made that way because they’re meant to fit loose. So you don’t want to go down too many sizes because then it will pull in the back and look like you have a wedgie. 🙂 And that’s never a flattering look on anyone. It’s a very relaxed fit all along the top area and thighs until it reaches 13 inches down the inseam at the knees, tapering off to a skinny fit when it hits the calves. The leg opening is 10 1/2 inches.
The wash is Ocean Mist. It’s a beautiful deep navy blue. There is a slight contrast in the color on the flaps of the cargo pockets. The flaps are a slightly darker shade of blue, which is hard to tell unless you’re looking pretty closely.
I’d say the fit and material are pretty much the same as the other Valentine cargos in Blacksand that we reviewed previously. They’re made of 97% cotton and 3% elastan. The rise is 10 inches with a 24 inch inseam. There are two cargo pockets on the left leg and one on the right. The pocket placement and slouchiness of the pockets give a more relaxed look to the pants.
I love that Siwy took an interesting twist from the whole rage of the skinny jean to this look. It still gives the feel of a skinny jean because of how fitted it is at the calves. But these are much more relaxed in the upper area, adding a lot of comfort to these pants. I think of these cargos as kind of a twist between the skinny and boyfriend jean. I love that no matter what the style, Siwy exudes femininity in all of their styles.
The rear has no pockets, which I try to avoid typically. But with the seams on the backside, it gives a fairly flattering illusion on the rear. There is also a removable matching waist tie.
The washing instructions are: machine wash in cold, tumble dry medium.
Celebrities seen wearing Siwy’s Valentine cargos (in different washes) are: Vanessa Hudgens, Demi Moore, Cheryl Cole, and Kristen Stewart.
