A Review of the Viral Citizens of Humanity Marcelle Pants 7

Being a fashion editor is an incredibly cool and rewarding job. But the most fun aspect, in my opinion, is keeping up with viral fashion trends and products and determining which ones are (or are not) worth investing in. This part of my role led me to discover Citizens of Humanity’s white Marcelle Cargo Pants all over TikTok and Instagram. Despite not typically following internet trends right away or buying into everything I read, I was intrigued that creators kept mentioning their versatility and wearability and that the white specifically was selling out everywhere. So, I decided to grab a pair.

The options for white trousers can be endless, but as a 5″1″ woman, I’m often disappointed in finding a pair that fits well and looks good. But to my surprise, the Marcelle pants exceeded all expectations. First off, these consist of everything shoppers (including myself) are looking for in a pair of pants—a modern barrel-leg, utilitarian-inspired details (6 large pockets), lightweight, durable fabric, and a loose but flattering fit. Basically, they give off that effortless look that actually requires minimal effort.

Similar to other Citizens of Humanity pants I’ve tried, the Marcelle’s run true to size. However, size up if you want them to sit low-rise rather than at your belly button. The best part? I did not need to get the pants hemmed; they hit right at my ankles.
