Many types of clothing have a special or distinctive color that makes them look particularly good. Let me explain what that means. Black is the magic color for the leather jacket. For the denim shorts, it is the blue color. For the vest, the answer may not be that obvious, but I would argue that the olive green is definitely one of the magic colors. To better show you how to style it, I have compiled a list of the best olive green vest outfit ideas. let’s check it out
