Cargo Pants
Originally created to hold gear for the military, these casual pants are known for the numerous pockets sewn onto the outside of the pants, often at the hip, thigh and/or knees.

Cargo pants add weight to your bottom half, so it's good for an inverted triangle or can compliment an already-balanced shape such as an hourglass. If you are a rectangle, choose a pair with pockets at the hip area to add curves below your waist and make your waist appear smaller than your hips.
