Khaki is to winter as yin is to yang. Neutral enough to suit just about any style or occasion – be it a slouch chino, an oversized tee or a throwover jacket – the cool olive tone fits right in each winter without fail.
Push up your collar and throw on a beanie because we’ve broken down the key khaki pieces you need this season and how to nail the trend.
Popularised by utilitarian trends, a zipped long-line khaki jacket is a seasonal hero that won’t date. Waist pockets and drawstring features make the khaki jacket equal parts stylish and conventional. Pair with dark wash jeans and push up your collar for a Robert Redford-esque look that is relentlessly cool while being conveniently practical.
Winter is the epitome of unpredictable, so be prepared with light layers that are versatile. A puffer gilet is the gateway piece for mastering this look – layer over a long sleeve tee or light-weight knit and you’ll be ready for whatever the weather has in store.
Thanks to Yeezy, head-to-toe tonal is the streetwear trend of 2017. When working with khaki, be sure to vary tones and hues; style a pair of cool-toned slouch chinos with a warmer-toned jacket in a darker hue. Balance the look out with a pair of white sneakers to pull the outfit together.
The cooler weather brings with it a slew of fabrications to play with. It’s the perfect time to work textures such as fleece, cashmere, cable knit and grosgrain into your outfit. Try a high sheen button-up as an alternative to a cotton shirt, paired with dark denim and combat boots for high contrast effect.
