What To Wear With Camo Pants

Army pants made their comeback with the rest of Y2K fashion and while this piece can definitely be a fashionable addition to your wardrobe, I know that figuring out how to style them can be a challenge!

Luckily, I’ve created chic army pants outfits (and have sourced plenty more!) to inspire you to add this bold print to your wardrobe. And I have plenty of tips to help you start styling your own camouflage pants outfits too!

How do you style camo pants?

Camo pants can be styled in so many ways in 2024:

  • with a classic tee, tank top, or sweatshirt
  • paired with a bomber jacket
  • with sneakers, sandals, or boots
  • with a blazer, button-up shirt, or blouse
  • dress up with pumps or heeled sandals

Additionally, you can stick with neutral tones to make it easy to style your camo pants, or go for bright colors if you want a bold, eye-catching look. 

Camo & Army Pants Outfit Ideas

Whether you have camouflage cargo pants or camo leggings, I’ve got a look for you below.

simple + sporty

Camo pants are perfect for styling into a simple but sporty outfit like the one I’m wearing above. Army pants already have athletic vibes, so wearing them with a crewneck sweater and black trainers creates an easy yet stylish look.

When it comes to knowing what color goes with camo, grey is always a safe bet, in my opinion! This outfit is perfect for keeping me warm on a chilly day, and it’s a great look for anything from grabbing coffee to grocery shopping.

add a blazer

This next outfit is from @clarkandstone, proving that adding a blazer to a camo pants outfit creates a chic and polished aesthetic.

Go for a neutral undershirt like this white tank top to keep it simple and easy to style. Sticking with a classic neutral tone like black for the blazer also keeps this outfit looking refined, and the heels add a feminine vibe that perfectly contrasts with the army print. 

The blazer easily turns this outfit from casual to sophisticated and still allows the camo pants to shine!

pops of color

I love this chic street style look!

If you are wondering what color goes with camo that isn’t a neutral, think pink!  You may not think that bright shades would work so well with camo pants, but the look above  proves that they do!

The vibrant colors add a gorgeous contrast to the muted tones in the camo print, and this makes the outfit unique and eye-catching. These bold shades also give the outfit a fun and youthful vibe that’s perfect for showing off your fun-loving side.

camo + leather

get the look:

Is there any outfit that wouldn’t look good with a little leather in it?

Leather is the perfect addition to an outfit with camo pants, in my opinion. I love the contrast between the sleek black leather and the rugged vibes of the army pants; it’s a gorgeous combo that really elevates the outfit. 

The neutral color of the leather vest also pairs well with the shades in the army pants, so you can go for anything from a leather jacket to a leather crop top for a similar look. 

winter ready

get the look:

Army pants are perfect for a cold-weather outfit and look fantastic with a variety of coats and jackets.

A faux leather and shearling jacket has a masculine aesthetic that matches the camo pants, giving this outfit a laid-back tomboy vibe. Sneakers fit the look perfectly and keep this outfit feeling casual. 

This is definitely a go-to outfit for those chilly days spent out and about town. 

What color goes with camo?

Despite what many people think, camo print pairs well with many colors! These are some of my favorite shades to combine with camo print pants:

  • army green
  • khaki
  • olive green
  • brown
  • black
  • beige or tan
  • white
  • grey
  • blue
  • pink or purple
  • orange

laid-back vibes

My next outfit is a perfect example of how to combine camo print with a light shade of blue! Using a neutral shade for the undershirt and sneakers is a perfect way to balance the outfit and let the blue and camo print be the stars. 

The blue button-up and sneakers also add a casual feel to my outfit, making it perfect for grabbing lunch with the girls before running a few errands. 

add a feminine touch

In this next outfit, I love how the sleek nude-toned tank top pairs perfectly with the neutral tones in the army pants. Keeping the colors neutral throughout the whole outfit adds a polished and put-together feel. 

Nude pumps are a fantastic way to add a feminine touch to any outfit, and this look is a must if you want a cute outfit for your next girls’ night out!

camo + a corset top

get the look:

I am in love with this combo of retro camo print pants with a trendy and feminine corset top.

These pieces contrast each other so well, and we love the combination of masculine and feminine vibes. The tan camo print on these pants is so gorgeous and makes it easy to combine this pattern with other pieces. 

If you are wondering what color goes with camo in a lighter shade, ivory and brown are always a safe bet. Go for an off-white corset or crop top for a warm-weather look or add a chic camel coat for cold days.

No matter which one you go for, you’ll definitely have a head-turning outfit!

Can you wear camo pants with a jean shirt?

You can definitely rock a jean shirt with camo pants! Go for a buttoned-up denim shirt or leave it open for a casual look; just make sure to stick with neutral or muted shades throughout the rest of the outfit. A classic black, white, or grey shirt is perfect to wear underneath your denim shirt, and black is a good color choice for shoes.

camo + denim

Camo print and denim are a match made in heaven. And my outfit above proves it!

The black top and shoes keep the outfit looking chic, and I love how my ballet flats add a feminine touch to this more masculine print. 

A denim jacket and camo pants are both casual pieces that pair well for a laid-back outfit like this. You can rock this look while grabbing lunch with your friends or even on a date night with your SO.

mix in metallics

get the look:

Metallic pieces are perfect for adding an eye-catching element to any outfit, and were a huge trend in 2023 (which is expected to continue in 2024).  The shimmering silver really pops against the muted tones of the army pants in the outfit above. 

This combination of military-inspired camo and bright metallics creates an outfit that’s edgy, youthful, and unique. You can add a metallic accent with shoes, purses, or even a silver crop top, so don’t be afraid to play around and create a chic and daring look that’s perfect for you.

camo + combat boots

Is there a more classic pairing than army pants and combat boots?

These pieces definitely have a military look, which is why they work so well together, in my opinion. The edgy black boots and rugged camo pants are a must if you want a bold outfit.

I also love that these pieces have muted and neutral tones that will easily pair with other colors. As a result, it’s easy to turn this into an outfit that’s both fashionable and functional.

Go for tall combat boots like these, or try ankle boots for a more subtle look.

What To Wear With Camo Pants: Final Notes

When it comes to styling camo pants, it’s not as difficult as it may seem! Sticking to neutral tones is an easy way to create a cohesive look with this bold print, and if you are still unsure about what color goes with camo – err on the side of caution and go with black, white, grey, or shades of brown

Balance the masculinity of the camo pants with feminine pieces like ballet flats or a corset top. And don’t be afraid to throw on a pair of heels! 

I hope you have enjoyed this camo pants style guide and feel confident to put together your next army pants outfit!
