How to wear khaki this winter

CARHARTT WIP Clash Parka CARHARTT WIP Clash Parka

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.

THE JACKET

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. 

HEAD-TO-TOE TONAL

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.
