GALLERY >>> 10 Ways To Wear Khaki

1. Update your denim with a fresh pair of khaki jeans

They’re just as versatile as your favourite blues and can be worn with a blazer and blouse for the office, or stilettos and a paper-thin tee for drinks.

2. Get shirty!

A khaki shirt is your new wardrobe BFF - opt for silk for the evening and work, and thick cotton or denim for the weekend. Wear your khaki shirt/jacket over a white summer dress for effortless model-off-duty cool. (Topshop have great options).

3. A baseball cap is a godsend for unruly workout hair

Stick to a chic active wear palette of black and khaki; and get your hike on - so LA.

4. THE makeup power duo - khaki nails + hot red lips

Keep nails short and square. Chanel’s ‘Alichimie’ is an investment in a silvery tone, and Topshop’s ‘Hidden Treasure’ has a beautiful iridescence.

5. The weekend was MADE for khaki outerwear

Stock up on a waxed jacket - Barbour and Belstaff have the best, or head to a local country store. Wear a belt to cinch in your waist, and top off with a woollen-checkered scarf.

6. Love for the luxe tee shows no sign of waning

Khaki is a beautiful shade for day to night purposes. Look for a good cotton - the best are woven with a little viscose, silk or wool for the perfect hang.

7. Update your trench coat in a fresh forest hue

8. If in doubt - embellish

Take baby steps in to the khaki trend with jewels. Embellished sandals, necklaces or jumpers are all great ways of dipping your toe in.

9. Get accessorising

Invest in a khaki handbag and you’ll set yourself apart from a sea of boring black. Wear a tote for work and suede clutch for evening.  

10. Layer up

Khaki is a versatile layering hue. Wear under dungarees, as a jacket, as a skirt and top combo . . . the wardrobe world is your oyster!

Put to bed any enduring army references – khaki is CHIC, and it’s everyone’s favourite day-to-day hue for Autumn. Jessica Alba and Jennifer Anniston are of course all year round fans but outside of the laid back look, we admit it’s a tricky trend to pull off.
