Whether you’re out for brunch or you’re going for a semi-formal dinner date, khakis lend themselves well to most occasions. Pair them with a polo shirt or a graphic T-shirt for a simple, understated look. Add a pair of leather-trimmed sneakers to round off your look. If you need to take your look up a notch, add a two-button summer jacket to the outfit.
Whoever said khaki trousers are too casual for work was clearly styling them wrong. Mid-rise, slim-fit khakis when paired with a simple checked shirt and brogues are perfect to wear to the office. Add a navy blazer if you’ve got to head out for a business lunch or a meeting. Darker toned khakis, which have a greenish tinge, look a tad less casual, so it’s a good idea to opt for them too.
For a look that’s earthy but steers clear from being shabby, pair khakis with a plain, white shirt or T-shirt, and complement the dusty tones with shades of rich brown. A woven belt, shoes, watch or a bomber jacket are simple ways to introduce brown accents into your look.
Although the nautical look consists of red, white and blue as its staple colours, breaking it up with a dash of khaki makes for a good change. Whether you’re jetting off to an exotic island or not, a bit of seaside fashion is definitely summer appropriate. A white and navy striped T-shirt paired with khakis and burnt-red leather summer sandals is super stylish and incorporates the nautical trend subtly.
Wearing printed shirts can be tricky and khakis work as a great canvas to wear them stylishly. Choose a pair that is more beige-toned for a printed shirt. Not only is this a more versatile option, it also helps make your outfit look more cohesive.
