In this blog post, I will share with you some of the best ideas for ladies cargo pants. When it comes to cargo pants, many people think they are the brown baggy pants with many pockets. That's only partially true. When they first became popular in the 90s, most are brown, baggy and have many pockets. But today, baggy pants come with all different cuts, from skinny, slim cuts, casual fit, to baggy, and they all have 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, you can wear cargo pants in many different interesting ways to make you stand out in everyday occasions, such as casual dining, hiking, dancing and more. Let's check out some of the best ideas now.
Wear a cropped top with baggy cargo pants
Wearing a fairly tight cropped top with baggy cargo pants is one of the best street styles, especially in the summer. You can still look great by pairing them with a jacket when it gets colder. The cropped top and baggy load combination is a good example of the "cramped, baggy bottom" trick that makes you look taller. I understand that not everyone can pull it off because not everyone is prepared to show the waist. But good results always require hard work. Invest in exercising and keeping fit.

Black or white tee & long necklace for casual street look
You can go really relaxed by simply wearing a white or black t-shirt with cargo pants. Since clothing is not the excuse you can use to look boring, you need to add details to this outfit to spice up your overall look. A perfect and easy way to do this is to pair them with a long and relaxed necklace. For this outfit idea, relaxed fit usually works really well.
Stand out by wearing light pants in light colors
If you want to stand out from the crowd on the street on a sunny day, you will be wearing bright pants in bright colors to definitely do the job. I'm not a fan of bright colors myself, but my favorite color for this outfit idea is the light blue. Although colors such as shocking pink and light yellow are available, I believe that light blue makes you stand out while not doing too much. For the top, a white top is probably the best and safest choice to pair with light colored trousers.
Wear cargo pants with a tank top for hiking
Cargo pants are the perfect pants for hiking as they are very tough and provide the protection you need for your legs. When it comes to casual and easy walking, it's a good idea to pair your cargo pants with a tank top that gives you the energetic and sporty look. If you like hats, you can pair them with a hat in a matching color so you look very stylish.
Wear a blouse with cargo pants to work
If your job does not require that you dress formally every day, you can actually dress in a smart relaxed way for work by wearing a blouse and cargo pants. If you do not want to spend effort to find out which of your blouses works best with umbrellas, you can only choose a white blouse and it can rarely go wrong.
Wear baggy pants for Zumba and Street Style Dance
Wearing baggy cargo pants just gives you the comfort and style of doing your street dance or zumba dance. For those of you who don't know what zumba is, it's a fitness program that combines dance and aerobics that come from South America. It has millions of fans from around the world because of how effective it is at helping people get fit and how fun it is to actually do the Zumba dance. Anyway, enough on zumba and I will save it for a future blog post on fitness. To pull off this outfit idea, a sports bra top or cropped top will work wonderfully.
Wear cargo pants with a nice sweater
Wearing a comfortable sweater with your cargo pants gives you the ultimate relaxed yet beautiful fall. This is one of the most feminine ways to wear cargo pants. It's the perfect costume for a causal dinner.
Wear with a shoulder top
Wearing a shoulder top is one of the most elegant and sexy ways to wear cargo pants. The imbalance in design with a shaft only gives the overall look more character. This outfit can also make you look a little slimmer and taller.
Wear with cold shaft top
As a slight variation to the combination with a shoulder top and cargo pants, with carrying cargo pants with a cold shoulder top you make it look a little more relaxed but less stylish. This is a great outfit idea, especially if you are not used to wearing off-shoulder or one-shoulder top.
Wear denim jacket with cargo pants
Last but not least is one of my favorite ways to wear cargo pants to pair them with a denim jacket. It can be the color, it can be the texture, they just seem to look beautiful for some reason. For those who love denim jackets, you don't have to be so bored with always pairing denim jackets with jeans.
Most of the ideas about cargo pants mentioned above are to look good on the street and in casual events.
