Khaki cool

Khaki is enjoying a moment in the fashion spotlight, perhaps because it's so versatile, effortlessly chic and known as a fashion neutral. Editor Trudi Brewer says it's also a colour you can team with some unexpected shades. Here's how to wear it this winter.

Top tips: Khaki is known as a neutral colour and is a brilliant alternative to black. It works with bold blue, maroon and other shades of green.
Or go classic and stick to an understated colour palette when wearing khaki, such as white or charcoal. 
Khaki and black are striking, use one colour to accent the other. 
For the weekend, pair khaki pants with pastels such as pale grey, pink, peach, lilac and soft blue.
