Khaki tones have carried their way through to Spring/Summer, branching out to pastel tones in greens, greys and browns to create a new twist for summer clothing. High street stores have taken inspiration from the safari/military trends that appeared on the catwalk from designers like Marc Jacobs & Ralph Lauren and presented them in a more commercial way.
Here I wanted to created a wishlist that is a nod to the khaki colour and items I would purchase when considering this trend. Prints such as floral camouflage and stylised palm prints go well within this trend - check out my palm prints wishlist here.
I have picked out key items from the various stores that fit perfectly into this trend. The most key items are the oversized khaki coloured shirt and camouflage army jacket. If you want to do a literal take on this trend these two items will be a must when shopping. Plus the army jacket never goes out of style! A few items for high summer and holiday that I would recommend are the square front playsuit, pastel bikini and the sandy beach twin set from Free people, all three could be worn for holidays or festivals. If you fancy splashing out and spending a bit, the tassel suede dress from Topshop is gorgeous and actually covers a couple of key trends happening this season. To finish off the wishlist I have included a casual Birkenstock sandal for a beach/summers day and a thick knotted rucksack. If you are wearing this trend on a night out I would recommend a chunky platform and a leather bucket bag to add an edge to your finish outfit.
Let me know your thoughts? and if you guys will be purchasing any summer khaki?
