What To Wear With Cargo Pants Men: 9 Outfit Options

The best things you can wear with cargo pants for men are high-top boots, chunky white sneakers, and simple tees. Since the cargo pants do a lot of talking, they’re great to pair with a simple tee shirt and some really nice boots. Cargo pants seem to look really good with tucked-in and tighter shirts compared to baggier tops. The AI reflects this in the images I’ve sorted through.

I’ve generated thousands of images from AI to find out what to wear with cargo pants men. Below are the best images I could find.

1. Brown Boots

These are actually dope black cargo pants, and paired with a brown work boot look really slick.


2. Black Tee & Big Boots

These khaki styled cargo pants go really well with a simple black tee and matching boots. Cargo pants do really well with simple tees.


3. No Sock Loafers & Simple White Tee

This is a classic look for cargo pants. Wear a nice creamy white tee with these green pants as an option and show those ankles with some nice black low-cut loafers or slide-ons.


4. Short Puffy Bomber Jacket

I feel like in terms of aesthetics, this works because the bottom half is evened out in symmetry with the upper half of the body. I also think it works because there is a space between puffiness separating the upper body and lower body. If that makes sense.


5. White Sneakers

White sneakers seem to be a favorite in mens fashion. They work in so many different scenarios and that is no exception with cargo pants. Rock some white sneaks and you’re good to go with a nice casual look.


6. Slightly Longer Tan Jacket

Since cargo pants make your lower half a little wider, adding a little bit of length to the upper half is a cool way to even it out and add some dimension. I don’t think those are the technical terms, but I really like this look. This is something I would rock for sure.


7. Black Long Sleeve Tucked In

Either way, the best option to make sure your shirt isn’t too long with cargo pants, so tucking it in seems to be a way to counter-act how weird it looks when you wear a long shirt with them. Keep em tighter and short when rocking cargos.


8. Horizontal Striped T-Shirt

I thought this was a cool option to include even though it’s similar to the others. But it shows how a horizontal tee can work with cargo pants as well. Just make sure you use the right color combinations with your shoes and you’re good to go.


9. Tucked-in Dress Shirt

Here is an interesting example of a tucked-in dress shirt for the cargo pants look. This works again because the shirt is tucked in and is a bit tighter of a style of shirt. Paired with some really nice high-top boots, this can work.


Overall this should give you some options to go off, but the most important takeaway that I learned is the tendancy to pair cargo pants with tucked-in, short, or tighter tops. This mixed with high-top military or chunky boots is a great option for cargo pants.
