They come in different colors and styles so you can pick out the one that speaks to you. Wear them with sweatpants and white sneakers, or with navy jeans and boots, either way, you still look fashionable! Walmart is selling a variety of cardigans with different colors between $14-$30. 

Cargo Pants

Cargo pants are a great option if you don’t want to wear skinny jeans or flare jeans. In fact, they are trending–a true must-have this fal Just like jeans, they come in different colors and styles: oversized, high-rise, wide-leg, you name it. Now, granted cargo pants are a bit more pricey, but you can still find them at Walmart for as low as $10 up to $25. Target offers them for a range of $16-$40.
