Khaki. Olive. Dark green. Whatever you call it, I think it’s a wonderful color. Although it can come off manly because it makes one think of the army, it is above all a cool color that has made it’s comeback over and over again…
Designers showed off this color in different ways: from glossy satin dresses to tough suede and leather shirts. And then of course, there are always the cotton capri trousers and the trenchcoat.
“This color is a fashion classic, here to stay
it comes back regularly and never really goes away.”
Now what I love most about this color, is that it can be worn in both the summer and the winter and make a total different statement. For example, if you match it to whites in the summer it can make an outfit look tougher, whilst in the winter khaki coats can be chique and feminine.
Colors like this one make me happy that there are handy webshops that give the opportunity to sort by color and so give you the opportunity to efficiently find what you are looking for. Like Your look… for less for example, a webshop I recently bumped into that sells pretty basics for a very good price. I have selected some items from this and other shops, in khaki ofcourse, that are just as much of a must have and on-trend as the color itself. See below!
