Casual in Khaki

Follow

I am in love with all of the trends this winter. I don't even care if love is too strong a word, but my wardrobe is currently super happy with me because I'm force-feeding it so many new pieces of clothing.
One of my absolute favourite colours to have come to the forefront this season: Khaki. The military trend always rears it's head every now and then, but utilising deeper more muted greens in everything imaginable is quite refreshing against the sea of black and oxblood red in shops at the moment.
It's such a flattering colour on all skin tones/hair colours (this is truly a struggle being a blonde/brunette hybrid nowadays) and there's such choice with what pieces to get, hopefully this post will inspire some of you to embrace a bit of khaki!

This outfit was a bit different for me to be honest. I usually like to wear tight fitting, darker clothes but I'm all about pushing my boundaries a bit more at the moment - see this post for more info on that - and so decided to put together a more casual, looser fitted look.
The khaki bomber jacket from Missguided (similar below) is something I've fallen completely in love with. It's all about that vibrant orange lining in my eyes! It's such beautiful material and feels so comfortable to wear. I'm definitely going to be trialling the versatility of this piece and pairing it with loads of different outfits. 

In-keeping with the whole Khaki theme I've picked out the colour again in these heels from New Look. I can't stop wearing these, they've fast become my go-to heels as they're so comfortable and I love the barely there look. Khaki heels are such a nice alternative to black or nude shades too!
My mom jeans from ASOS are my new exploration into a more casual silhouette, and apart from the fact my mum is convinced they won't survive her brutal clothes washing regime, I'm actually quite liking them. It takes a lot to get used to baggy jeans when you've been wearing skinnies for what feels like forever, but they are fitted enough around my bum and thighs that I don't feel like a potato sack (I'm so good at creating these images aren't I...).
Finishing off the outfit with this adorbs but very simple grey lace-up top from Miss Selfridge. It's a really nice nod to the lace up trend and long sleeves are perfect for the weather at the moment too.

So, I'm hoping you guys like this new look!
Have you bought into the khaki trend? Do you sometimes push your boundaries with what you wear or do you prefer to stick to what you know looks good?
Let me know what you think xx

  3. I am enthralled by olive green, as well, this season. I just purchased a military green puffer coat which was quite the deviation from me but I really wanted something distinctive from the usual black coats I am usually drawn too. Great jacket and look. It totally captures the spirit of fall.
