Having a css class changing dynamically according to the route path not functioning as expected

I’d like to include an active class in a link when I’m on the following path as copied from my browser:

In my blade I have the following but it’s not working when I’m not on that path.

<li class="{{ Request::path() === 'products?look=official' ? 'active' : '' }}">Official Khaki Pants & Blouses</li>

What I’m I missing?

Method 1

You can use ->input() or ->query() from Request facade or request() helper.

<li class="{{ request()->query('look') == 'official' ? 'active' : '' }}">
    Official Khaki Pants & Blouses

Method 2

<li class="{{ request()->input('look') == 'official' ? 'active' : '' }}">Official Khaki Pants & Blouses</li>
