AW17 Trends

Khaki and Military

Khaki pants, a white shirt and a navy blazer. All you need is a camel trench and you’ll be ready to serve.

Berry shades offer the perfect contrast to the military undertones of khaki. This combination softens the severity of khaki and adds a touch of romance. A red handbag, red silk scarf and navy pants with a khaki blazer are the business. Military inspired is not only a colour, but it is also a silhouette. The sharp shoulders the epaulettes, the brass buttons, the braid, the zips, pockets and overall functionality. Military jackets and trench coats emphasise the trend.

What colours go well with khaki green? The obvious choices like black, white, grey and navy are great. However chicness is as chicness does so be bold and opt for brights like ruby red, magenta and rust. These colours pop next to khaki and steal its thunder. It really is the perfect neutral.

Khaki has a unisex vibe that works well juxtaposed against ultra feminine fabrics like sheer lace and shiny silk. It’s the unexpected combinations of current trends that work the best and open you up to new and exciting possibilities. Coats are where the military trend excels. Beautiful tailoring, below the knee length, exquisite quality fabrics and linings. Military details cap it all off.
