An Alternative to Jeans: Hush Zip Cargo Trousers

If you end up wearing jeans a lot, as I do, both for work and play, it's sometimes good to have an alternative that works just as well for everyday. For me, it's the zip cargo trousers from Hush, which I've had for a while, but I don't think they've featured on the blog before. Beautifully soft and a lovely slate grey colour which goes with almost anything, they are easy to throw on and look equally good with heels or dressed down with trainers. I'm mentioning them now as Hush are having a mid season sale with 25% off 25 different styles until the end of the month:

Zip Cargo Trousers £59.25 from £79

And here I am wearing them yesterday for an annual shopping trip to buy clothes for Mr DF:

Zip Cargo Trousers - Hush
White Top - Zara AW14
Gilet - Mint Velvet AW13
Blanket Scarf - Zara AW14
Grey Boots - Ash Jalouse AW13

There's a couple of other gems in the sale that are worth looking at too. I have the Rosie dress in navy from last year and it's such an easy dress to wear casually with tights, boots and a scarf over the top:

Rosie Dress £48.75 from £65

This shirt is now a great price - I love the teal colour and it would look effortlessly chic with jeans:

Iris Shirt £36.75 from £49

And I know it's another grey jumper, and I am addicted to them, but this one has a really unusual texture and pattern:

Diamond Knit Jumper £56.25 from £75

And a great wardrobe staple - a slouchy blazer for the colder months in a soft jersey that is both warm and comfy:

Winter Shawl Blazer £44.25 from £59

And there's also 10% off everything else at Hush with the code OCTEVENT

Do you have a great pair of casual trousers that you wear instead of jeans?

  1. I agree these make a great alternative, perhaps I should look at getting something like this. Fab picks from Hush as always, oh how I want their parka with the blue fur trim! x

    1. The parka is gorgeous! I doubt it will ever make it to the sale!

  2. I agree Abbi, cargo trousers are a great alternative to jeans, yours look great, oh and that Zara scarf looks amazing

  3. I have a pair of skinny combats from River Island which I absolutely love and they're my alternatives to jeans. The Hush ones look fab, Abbi. Perfectly styled as always! Lynne x

  4. I bought the pale grey Hush cargos from the summer collection but the fit was awful, even the smallest size was huge on me so sadly I had to return! Love the dark grey ones you have on. The Hush items I had on my wishlist aren't in the sale (boo, hiss!!) x

  5. I have something v.similar to the Hush cargo pants from Uniqlo last year...even the same colour so I am inspired to get them out again, thank you! I have just purchased my first ever item from Hush so fingers crossed it works out! xx

  6. Lovely outfit Abbi - I've got Mint Velvet gilet envy! The cargo trousers are lovely as well. I've been wearing those Baukjen leather leggings a lot recently instead of my jeans, but more for days out. I feel a bit of a plonker overdressed in them for everyday x

  7. I have some great cargo pants from Sainsbury's (I know!) but I do need some more as they're almost worn out. The ones here are GORGEOUS

  8. Hee hee those Hush Cargo Pants are getting a lot of good press from us lot this week. I really like them Abbi. I've got the Rosie dress on order in the other colour way. How did you get on shopping for hubby? Mine casually mentioned that he thought he should do a shop since he hasn't been since JANUARY!! Why won't he do it online - it would be so much less stressful x
