There’s something about a crisp pair of khaki trousers or slacks that feels fresh and out of the ordinary for this time of year. A heavier fabric than most, it’s versatile enough to act as a proper substitute for your trusted blue jeans or black trousers.

Khaki tones and muddy greens are enjoying their time in the limelight at the moment and the high street have presented its many interpretations with how it can be worn. It’s the perfect hue to gently ease you out of your mid-winter comfort zone of blacks and navy, and looks crisp against white knits and tees.

The options available at the moment are seemingly endless! Scroll down for spot-on ways of styling khaki and to see my picks to test-drive the colour yourself.
