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 magical 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 magical 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.

Very often one saw some very simple and casual outfits built around an olive green vest. But to start this interesting list with a little surprise, I’m going to show you this relatively nifty layered outfit.

For those of you who want to find a way to look slimmer, a very easy option is to just wear black. For example, you can just wear a black, figure-hugging vest top with black skinny jeans.
