Khaki is the new black
By Gavin Jewkes, 13 September 2015
Despite the odd trippy, 70s-inspired trend trickling through, colour has been on an extended vacation for the past few seasons, with monochrome looks dominating catwalks and high streets. And while we’re still partial to a dash of the dark stuff, there’s a new neutral on the block, nipping at its heels for a spot in our wardrobes – khaki.
Khaki also slots seamlessly into outfits because of its versatile nature – it looks sound set against both heavy shades and pops of colour.
Here we’ve created a simple look for you, using our favourite new hue. We call it military-infused minimalism, because that’s how we do, but feel free to refer to it how you like. It has a street-meets-outdoorsy vibe, which means you can wear it up a mountain (should you be in the Snowdon area this weekend) or to hang backstage with Kanye (props to anyone who manages that). At its heart is a knitted khaki T-shirt, which we’ve thrown together with a cracking adidas jacket, some lightweight shorts, obligatory Vans and an easy-on-the-eye backpack. Your mates will be green with envy when you rock up in this.
