Khaki: new color of the season
Khaki: The New Color Of The Season
I thought we'd have a few more days left of summer, but judging by how cold I am right now, fall is upon us. One of my favourite colors this season is khaki. I didn't wear it much last fall, that's mainly because I didn't have anything that color.
When I bought this top from Missguided, I loved the color so much I went back and bought another dress. Khaki is an excellent new color of the season. It's reminiscent of fall and foliage, and it matches perfectly with every skin tone.
Lace bralets, bodysuits, mesh, and crop tops are all super trendy items that will be in style for the fall. If you want to make an investment, I highly recommend this khaki crop from Phillip Lim.
I decided to pair this top with white pants. This is how they were paired on the website! I know, I'm so predictable.
You simply must check out these Alexander McQueen tux pants that are on such a huge sale! Tuxedo pants are an excellent winter white: they're dressy for holidays, and warm for the cooler weather. I love the way khaki looks with white. My pants are Adam Lippes, his clothes are really amazing quality. What makes these pants 'tuxedo' is the satin waistband and side stitch, like these McQueen pants. These fringe pants are a unique spin on the traditional tuxedo pant, also from Adam.
Shoes & Accessories
I didn't want the pants to be dragging on the floor, so I wore some heels, but kept the height of the heel lower so that the pants are still the focal point.
My bag is a nod to the 'lunch clutches' of yore. It had straps which I took off, and it became a roll top evening clutch.
The bag is simple, so it's a good clutch for daytime wear. But it can also work well in the evenings with a fancy dress.
What do you guys think about khaki? Will you be wearing it this season?
