The cargo vest is one of those interesting elements that you can add to your usual outfit and make it look completely different stylistically. Unlike other types of vests, the cargo vest almost always makes you look at least decent when paired with a casual outfit. It just adds an extra tough touch to your look. Even though the cargo vest is pretty easy to style, I’m still trying to put together some of the best outfits for the cargo vest. They are generally very easy to peel off. Now let’s go through them and try them for yourself.
Cargo vest over black and white striped t-shirt
A cargo vest pairs perfectly with a horizontally striped top like this long-sleeved black and white tee. For the bottom, you can wear black skinny jeans or leggings. Complement this comfortable looking outfit with leather boots.
Wear yours with a striped shirt dress
As shown in the previous outfit idea, wearing the cargo vest goes perfectly with the horizontal striped t-shirt dress. I see this outfit as the perfect spring outfit as there are times when just wearing a shirt makes you feel a little cold. A cargo vest is suitable for these kind of spring days.
Check boyfriend shirt with cargo vest
For a unisex outfit idea, you can wear the cargo vest over a plaid boyfriend shirt. Just wear skinny jeans and nude flats for the butt.
Wear yours with a gray tee and black skinny jeans
The cargo vest not only adds a bit of extra warmth but also adds a bit of style, especially when you’re wearing the all-too-standard gray t-shirt and skinny jeans outfit. Layering will stop your outfit from looking too sloppy.
White t-shirt, black pants and knee-high boots
Here is another example of how the cargo vest can turn your boring outfit into a stylish one. The combination of a white t-shirt and black skinny pants looks good but is a bit too common. The cargo vest and knee high boots take this outfit to a new level.
Wear it with the blue knee length dress
For an outfit with a stronger color contrast. Try this with army green cargo vest over blue knee length dress. Wear black or gray ankle boots for the shoes. Not only do the colors create a stark contrast, the toughness that comes with the dress and the feminine touch of the dress create a very interesting, unique contrast.
Wear yours with a horizontal striped t-shirt and white sneakers
Most of the striped t-shirt outfit ideas that I have shown you include ankle boots to create a more stylish and beautiful look. I want to show you that the cargo vest also goes perfectly with white sneakers as a casual outfit. This outfit is super easy to pull off regardless of your body type and the good news is that most of you already have all the items you need for this outfit in your closet. Try it.
Wear yours with a white button down shirt and cuffed jeans
For companies that have a startup-like spirit, this outfit is probably a good business casual outfit. While I know you can only wear t-shirts and jeans in companies like this, dressing smarter is a great way to put yourself in the zone. Going back to this outfit, you can simply wear a white button down shirt and cuffed jeans like many of you normally would. Add a touch of style to the cargo vest to complete the outfit.
Wear over black and white polka dot dress
This outfit combines the cuteness that comes with the black polka dot dress with the toughness that comes with the cargo vest in a very interesting, slightly contrasting way. I can see people with strong characters can pull off this outfit with confidence.
Wear yours with a long-sleeved, form-fitting gray tee and jeans
The key to looking sharp with this outfit is to make sure the gray t-shirt is form fitting. This makes the load vest layering much better and the overall look less bulky.
Wear yours over a black t-shirt dress and nude heeled sandals
This is such a minimal way of styling the cargo vest, but the combination of cut and color of the pieces looks just right. This outfit is probably my favorite outfit on the list. For the outfit you simply wear a black t-shirt dress with the army green cargo vest and nude sandals.
Wear yours with a shirt dress and fedora
For a creative and artistic look, you can wear a black t-shirt dress with a cargo vest and a fedora. You might also want to read my other blog post on how to wear a fedora.
Wear over denim shirt
Denim shirt is such a popular item. So I just want to mention this outfit idea of wearing a cargo vest over a denim shirt and let you know that these items go together pretty decently.
Wear it over a black t-shirt and a striped midi skirt
This is a very different way of designing the stripe pattern than the previous ideas. Instead of a striped top, the outfit consists of the horizontally striped midi skirt and the black top. This creative way of styling the items makes the look very refreshing and remarkable.
Cargo vest over gray vest top and denim shorts
A cargo vest is usually a bit long, falling well below the waist. Wearing it with a gray vest top and denim shorts creates a very interesting layering effect.
I hope you enjoy the list I just shared with you about wearing the cargo vest. Check out our other blog posts for more outfit ideas.
