The cargo vest was one of those trends that I didn't really understand until I tried it. Am I supposed to dress it up or dress it down? Can I wear it with something else that's sleeveless? Removing sleeves from something apparently has quite the disorienting effect on me. Now that I have one, the question is what doesn't it look good with? Blouses, t-shirts, dresses — it can do it all. It has that off-duty but still pulled-together look that I love.
I scored my cargo vest at Target for $30 in the beginning of spring. I haven't seen it since, but I did find this similar cargo vest at Macy's, which is now on sale.
