J Brand Houlihan Cargos in Vintage Olive

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you have probably seen many celebrities (and non-celebrities as well) rocking these fabulous cargo pants since Spring of 2010. J Brand has become a pioneer in the cargo trend that has been taking the denim world by storm, and this trend is still going strong. The J Brand Houlihan cargo pants are one of the most flattering pairs of pants I have seen so far. Made of Japanese twill consisting of 98% cotton and 2% lycra, they have just a slight stretch to them. The rise is 7 1/2 inches, and the waistband is on the tigher side with not a lot of give. These are pretty true to size, even though they may fit pretty snug initially. They do stretch some with wear.
The color is a beautiful shade of green.  The color name is Vintage Olive, although I don’t really consider these an olive green. I’d say they are more of a dusty pistachio green.  The inseam is 29 inches, allowing most girls to wear them without needing alterations. The leg opening is a touch less than 10 inches.  But with the outer side zipper, it allows an easier alternative to getting your legs in and out of the pants without any struggle.  J Brand perfected the side cargo pocket placement without taking away from the silhouette of a skinny jean.  I wore these with one of my favorite jewelry pieces by BDP…my smokey topaz ring surrounded by diamonds, set in rose gold.
The rear has slit pockets with flaps. The rear isn’t the most flattering in my opinion, especially for those with smaller rears. Flattering rear pockets are normally a big selling point for me when buying denim, but these pants as a whole have such an amazing fit that make up for the rear. The fit on these are very tight. They are meant to be very fitted skinny cargo pants. If you aren’t normally a fan of skinny jeans, then these probably aren’t the cargos for you.
The washing instruction are as follows: wash cold water, tumble dry low, do not bleach. Keep in mind that these do fade pretty considerably with each wash, so be mindful of what type of detergent you use on these.
Some of the celebrities that have been seen in these J Brand Houlihans are: Rachel Bilson, Charlize Theron, Jessica Alba, Cindy Crawford, Vanessa Hudgens, Vanessa Minnillo, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Kristen Bell, and many many more.
