The Coolest Fall Color - Khaki


Khaki seems to be big for the coming season. This cool olive hue may have a military connotation to it, but that doesn't mean all the silhouettes have to be masculine. In fact, nothing looks prettier than a girly shape -- especially one with ruffles -- adorned in olive drab. This cool color has long been seen in the form of army jackets, but thanks to the military trend that made its way down multiple runways the past couple of seasons, khaki has been taking on other forms, from dresses to hats to trousers. Other feminine ways to take olive: peplums, tiers, sheer and bows. One of the edgiest of all the neutrals, khaki fits right in with fall’s rich hues and textures, and given the abundance of khaki sightings on celebs recently, I think the color will only become more prevalent as we march into fall.


Whether you go full-on military with an army jacket or just go for a military feeling with details -- cargo pockets, epaulets, etc. -- the effect is crisp and clean.


Thanks for reading!
