In this blog post, I’m going to share some of the best cargo pants outfit ideas for women with you. When it comes to cargo pants, a lot of people think they are brown baggy pants with lots of pockets. That is only partially true. When they first became popular in the 90s, most of them are brown, baggy, and have lots of pockets. But these days baggy pants have all sorts of cuts, from slim, slim cut, relaxed fit to baggy, and they are all different colors like brown, green, black, white, navy and light blue. While it is usually not appropriate to wear cargo pants for formal or semi-formal occasions, there are many different interesting ways you can wear cargo pants to stand out on casual occasions such as casual dining, hiking, dancing, and more. Now let’s look at some of the best ideas.
Wear a short top with baggy cargo pants
Wearing a fairly tight cropped top with baggy cargo pants is one of the best street style looks, especially in summer. They can still look great by pairing them with a jacket when it gets colder. The combination of a shortened top and baggy cargo is a good example of the “tight top, baggy bottom” trick that makes you look taller. I understand that not everyone can do this because not everyone is ready to show the waistline. But a good result always takes hard work. Make an effort to exercise and keep in shape.

Black or white t-shirt & long necklace for the casual street look
You can go really casual by simply wearing a white or black t-shirt with cargo pants. Since casual dressing isn’t the excuse to look boring, you need to add details to this outfit to spice up your overall look. A perfect and easy way is to pair them with a long and casual necklace. With this outfit idea, a relaxed fit usually works very well.
Wear brightly colored cargo pants
If you want to stand out from the crowd on the street on a sunny day, brightly colored cargo pants are for you. Since I’m not a fan of bright colors myself, my favorite color for this outfit idea is bright blue. Although colors like shocking pink and bright yellow are available, bright blue will make you stand out without overdoing it. For the top, a white top is probably the best and safest choice to combine with brightly colored cargo pants.
Wearing cargo pants with a tank top for hiking
Cargo pants are the perfect pants for hiking as they are very sturdy and offer the protection you need for your legs. When it comes to casual and easy hiking, pairing your cargo pants with a tank top is a great idea that will give you an energetic and sporty look. If you like hats, you can pair them with a hat of a matching color to make you look very stylish.
Wear a blouse with cargo pants to work
If you don’t have to dress formally every day for your job, you can dress smart and casual for work by wearing a blouse and cargo pants. If you don’t want to go out of the way trying to figure out which of your blouses will go best with cargo pants, you can just pick a white blouse that rarely goes wrong.
Wear baggy cargo pants for Zumba and street style dance
Wearing baggy cargo pants just gives you the comfort and style to do your street dance or Zumba dance. For those of you who don’t know what Zumba is, it is a fitness program that combines dance and aerobics and is native to South America. It has millions of fans from all over the world because of its effectiveness in helping people get in shape and how fun it is to actually do the Zumba dance. Anyway, enough on Zumba and I’ll save it for a future blog post on fitness. To implement this outfit idea, a sports bra top or a short top works wonderfully.
Wear cargo pants with a comfortable sweater
When you wear a comfortable sweater with your cargo pants, you get the ultimate relaxed but beautiful fall look. This is one of the most feminine ways to wear cargo pants. It’s the perfect outfit idea for a causal dinner.
Wear with a shoulder top
Wearing it over a one shoulder top is one of the most stylish and sexy ways to wear cargo pants. The imbalance of a one shoulder design adds character to the overall look. You can also look a bit slimmer and taller with this outfit.
Wear with a cold shoulder top
As a slight variation on the combination of one-shoulder top and cargo pants, wearing cargo pants with a cold shoulder top makes you look a little more casual, but less stylish. This is a good outfit idea, especially if you are not used to wearing a strapless or strapless top.
Wear a denim jacket with cargo pants
Last but not least, one of my favorite ways to wear cargo pants is to pair them with a denim jacket. Maybe it’s the color, maybe it’s the texture, they just seem to look beautiful together for some reason. For those who love denim jackets, it doesn’t have to be so boring to always combine denim jackets with jeans.
Most of the cargo pants ideas mentioned above are designed to look great on the street and at casual events.
