Khak is Back

No camouflage, greens or browns. No chinos. No stealing your boyfriend's pants. This seaon's khaki is military-inspired yet feminine and as ubiquitous as ever.

You might not remember the last time you stepped foot inside the Gap, but this Spring, you just might have a reason to visit one because khak is back. Before you sprint for your ten-year-old chinos, let us offer some pointers and guidelines. A) Under no circumstances are khakis to be worn together – khaki on khaki -unless you are actually on a safari. B) No camouflage. And avoid those faded greens and browns. Not only are they not true khaki, but they look frumpy and worn.

Runways are flooded with classic khaki trenches, military-inspired jackets and utilitarian blazers with feminine detail and sheen. Opt for styles with a little flare – large collars, cropped cuts, stylish sleeves and flattering fits. Theory and J.Crew are go to’s for this season’s khak attack, but trendier shops like Top Shop and Still on a budget, then go ahead and hit up the Gap for a khaki boyfriend blazer. Pair it with your floral print Top Shop shorts or your favorite pair of destroyed denim. For a more smooth look, try a shiner khaki like the BCBG blazer shown here. The collar detailing and gathered waist provides the traditionally masculine material a feminine touch. And by all means, make it your own.
