Celebrities wearing J Brand's Houlihans

Fab Closet: Everyone's Crushing on Cargo Pants!

It's times like this when I feel I should have the words 'fashion victim' tattooed to my derrière. Sounds drastic, but really, how else can I explain my current obession with the Houlihan? Firstly, they're cargo pants. I thought I hated cargo pants. Secondly, the oversized pocket detail sits right near the hips. As any gal knows, extra bulge around the hip area is nobody's friend. And thirdly, well, did I mention they were cargo pants? I'm obvioulsy not alone here. Cathy Horyn from The New York Times has fallen under the Houlihan's spell, as has Rihanna, Rachel Bilson, Kate Bosworth, Gwen Stefani and Jessica Alba. I'm telling you, these J Brand skinny leg cargo pants are taking over the WORLD!

So what is it about the M*A*S*H inspired Houlihans? Made from Japanese cotton with a touch of lycra, the skinny but flattering line works well with not only heels, but flats and sneakers, too. The faded khaki colour gives a nod to the current military craze, and the zips and pockets add just enough utility detail. Popular US stores including Bloomingdale's, Intermix and Barneys New York have all sold thousands of pairs, and now have waiting lists to satisfy the huge demand. Locally, you can get your hands on the J Brand Houlihans from Fifiluxe online, Come As You Are in Sydney (02 9331 3350), and Janine Edwards in Queensland (07 5591 5911). Run, don't walk.
