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 simply gives your look a particularly tough touch. Although the cargo vest is pretty easy to style, I am still trying to put together some of the best outfits regarding the cargo vest. They are generally very easy to pull off. Now let’s go through them and try them out for yourself.
Cargo vest over black and white striped T-shirt
A cargo vest goes 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. Complete this comfy-looking outfit with leather boots.
Wear with a striped shirt dress
As shown in the previous outfit idea, wearing the cargo vest works perfectly with the horizontally striped t-shirt dress. I see this outfit as the perfect spring outfit as there are times when you just feel a little cold wearing just one shirt. A cargo vest is suitable for these types of spring days.
Checked boyfriend shirt with cargo vest
As a unisex outfit idea, you can wear the cargo vest over a checked boyfriend shirt. Just wear skinny jeans and nude flats for the bum.
Wear it with a gray t-shirt and black skinny jeans
Not only can the cargo vest add a little extra warmth to you, but it can also add a little bit of style, especially when you’re wearing that all-too-common gray t-shirt and skinny jeans outfit. The layering means your outfit no longer looks too sloppy.
White t-shirt, black pants and knee high boots
Here is another example of how the cargo vest can transform your boring outfit into a stylish one. The combination of a white T-shirt and black skinny pants looks good, but it’s a bit too common. The cargo vest and knee-high boots take this outfit to a new level.
Wear with the blue knee length dress
For an outfit with a stronger color contrast. Try this with the army green cargo vest over the 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 also create a very interesting, unique contrast.
Wear it with a horizontal striped t-shirt and white sneakers
Most of the striped t shirt outfit ideas I’ve shown you involve ankle boots to create a more stylish and beautiful look. I would like to show you that the cargo vest also works perfectly with white sneakers as a leisure outfit. This outfit is very easy to take off regardless of your body type and the good news is that most of you already have all of the items you need for this outfit in your closet. So give it a try.
Wear it with a white button-up shirt and jeans with cuffs
For companies that have a startup-like spirit, this outfit is likely a good business casual outfit. While I know you can just wear t-shirts and jeans to work in companies like this, dressing smarter is a great way to put yourself in the zone. Back to that outfit, you can just wear a white buttoned 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 that people with a strong character can take off this outfit with confidence.
Wear it with a long-sleeved, figure-hugging gray t-shirt and jeans
The key to looking sharp with this outfit is to make sure the gray t-shirt is body-hugging. This makes the cargo vest layering so much better and the overall look less bulky.
Wear it over a black t-shirt dress and bare heeled sandals
This is such a minimal way of styling the cargo vest, but the cut and color combination 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 bare sandals.
Wear with a shirt dress and a felt hat
For a creative and artistic look, you can wear a black t-shirt dress with a cargo vest and a felt hat. You might also want to read my other blog post on how to wear a felt hat.
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 over black t-shirt and 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 & denim shorts
A cargo vest is usually a bit long and reaches 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. You can find many more outfit ideas in our other blog posts.
