Khaki is back in a big way. Over the last few weeks I’ve bought a khaki vest with a cross on it, a khaki utility jacket and a khaki maxi skirt. They’re all from Topshop but in every shop I seem to look in lately, I spy a few khaki pieces, especially the “utility jackets” which are becoming popular. I think Louise from Made in Chelsea has a lot to answer for after wearing her Zara khaki and leather jacket in more than one episode.
I think khaki is a really flattering colour and the utility jackets and shirts are such versatile pieces as they can really dress up or dress down an outfit. Camouflage is also coming back in a big way but make sure to not over do it! I think a ulitity jacket over a really girly dress would really stand out-contrast hot pinks or neon yellows with the khaki tones. Alternatively, for a more understated look, khaki and all black is always a winner.

If you are liking the khaki trend, here are a few ideas of items you can purchase. I’ll hopefully have an OOTD up soon of my khaki maxi skirt-I’m in love with it!
