Practical or a fashion faux pas? Doyin Richards sounds off on the “Great Cargo Shorts Debate.”
There are a lot of things that I don’t understand – such as how my kids can run around for hours outdoors and still refuse to sleep at night. However, for the life of me, I cannot understand why people would be against cargo shorts. It’s like being against the tastiness of ice cream or the adorableness of puppies.
Are they sexy or fashionable? No, but I stopped worrying about being sexy or fashionable as soon as crayons, potty training, finger paint, and glitter came into my world. It’s all about being practical. I need a place to keep all of the high-rotation items for my kids readily accessible without having to dig through a diaper bag. That’s where the oh-so-glorious cargo pockets come into play.
Need a snack or water bottle at the playground? Boom. That’s the right leg pocket.
Need to clean the fistful of mud (I hope it’s mud) before handling your snack or water bottle? I got it covered, kid. Hand sanitizer and wipes are in the left leg pocket.
