Khaki : The neutral everyone should wear

Khaki : The Neutral everyone should wear

Do you like Khaki? We can all get stuck in the old stories we tell ourselves and khaki gets a bad rap. Reminding many of cargo pants, parkas and All Saints (a band in the early 2000’s!)

Well think again, Khaki has had an update and here are the reasons why you should add it into your wardrobe:

  1. It’s a softer and more considerate neutral than black and navy on your skin tone.
  2. It is a neutral and goes with every colour in your wardrobe. Think about nature and how green sits with every flower you see.
  3. It has a great mix of timeless and modern vibes.

5 ways you could add it into your wardrobe today:

Wear it as a dress

Anything from modern fabrics to fluid florals. Khaki will lift your working wardrobe. I love this simple yet effective Me + Em dress.

This neck line is flattering for those with a larger and smaller bust.

Flattering sleeve length and the dipped hem at the back is a unique touch.

Wear it as a boxy Jacket

You see khaki as a bomber jacket a lot but this tailored boxy shape feels fresh and perfect for updating denim!

 

Wear it as a boot

More wearable that Camel, khaki is a great touch with black and blue.

Love the double tab detail on these by new brand Nubikk
