Cargo shorts are dominating the internet this week. It all started with a Wall Street Journal essay about how awful they are (if you somehow missed the hoopla, here's a follow up that recaps the controversy). Both vehement detractors and staunch supporters have shared their unshakable opinions about the functional-yet-less-than-stylish clothing item. So of course we pondered, what's the cargo short equivalent for the home? We have some ideas, but we'll let you decide.
A theory posed in the original essay is that people who wear cargo shorts started to do so in college, and just never stopped. Using that logic, we looked for inspiration for our cargo short equivalents in a post about things you shouldn't have in your apartment after college.
So tell us, which of these are the cargo shorts of home decor?
Did we miss one? Tell us in the comments.
