Why Khaki is the new camel
We all love camel as a classic, and classy, neutral tone, but if you’re looking for something with the same earthy, grounded in nature, feel but with a slighter more contemporary vibe then opt for khaki.
We’ll admit that khaki went through a slightly youthful phase when the band All Saints first popularized their oversized khaki cargo pants and Liam from Oasis was rarely seen out of his khaki parka, but a few decades on the colour khaki is finding its rightful place in more grown-up wardrobes.
Khaki is a brilliant colour choice for the older complexion. While camel can leave some looking slightly washed out, khaki can brighten and enliven even the palest of skin tones.
Khaki also works with almost any other colour in your wardrobe – think how green is the backdrop to any flower in nature.
We love pairing khaki with black, beige and brown tones as well as pastels and pops of vibrant colours.
Faux fur accessories, coats or gilets go especially well with khaki, working as a luxurious contrast to its more military vibe.
