Khaki is THE green of the season. Along with classic navy blue and taupe, khaki makes its big comeback in our wardrobes this autumn. Here are four tips to wear it well, far from army inspirations.

Tip No. 1: Get sporty

The NOOGY leggings

 

Stay comfy without sacrificing style thanks to these slightly stretchy cotton leggings paired with an oversized thermal sweatshirt or a super-soft cardigan. A look that’s perfect indoors and out.

 

Tip No. 2: Opt for more feminine pieces

The NOOGY bodysuit and BLINEWOOD jeans

 

For your evenings out in winter, choose comfort and fashion with a V-neck bodysuit and deep blue high-rise jeans. Finish your look with a long coat or an enveloping jean jacket before you step outside.

 

Tip No. 3: Pump up the volume

OMOBAY jumper

 

To continue chilling on winter weekends, nothing’s better than a loose and comfy outfit. A big polo neck jumper over a long flowing skirt and you’re all set.

 

Tip No. 4: A subtly nuanced head-to-toe look

The ZABIDOO cardigan and the OZOLITTLE joggers

 

The idea is to stick to the same colour range, but to select pieces in slightly different shades. For example: a slightly heathered bamboo green cardigan teamed up with olive joggers.
