What To Wear With Khaki Pants For Women
+ White top
One of the simplest options is a combination with a white color. The white top will make your overall style look more elegant, refreshing and special. All kinds of white blouses, T-shirts, long sleeves, turtlenecks and jumpers are welcomed.
+ Black Top
A more complex color scheme can be achieved by pairing khaki pants with a black top. It is best to wear trousers in a more lighter khaki shades, so that the outfit does not turn out to be too monotonous, but looks a little restrained and stylish. This combination is suitable even for the office, provided that your trousers are made in a classic fit and design.
No less versatile are combinations with gray. It is best to wear a light gray top with trousers, so that the outfit does not turn out to be too restrained. This pair can be an excellent base combination to which you can add all sort of accessories of bright and saturated colors, for example, yellow or red shoes or a purse.
+ Denim (Blue, Light Blue)
A denim shirt in a bright blue color is just an excellent option for khaki pants. All shades of blue will look great with that color, enhancing and supporting each other.
+ Beige (Brown)
Since khaki refers to the colors of the earth, its combinations with beige and brown will look very harmonious and natural. And you can see this for yourself by looking at the photos below.
+ Pastel top
Quite good combinations can be obtained in a pair with delicate lightened shades. Just remember that the pastel colors of the top should not be too light, otherwise they will simply be lost against the background of a darker and heavier khaki. Muted pink, soft yellow, peach, mint, lilac are well accompanied with khakis.
+ Bright top
Bright colors are the perfect solution for outfits completed with khaki trousers. The contrast of a restrained protective shade and rich colors will make your outfits more dynamic, the color scheme will look stylish and impressive. Bright yellow, pink, red or orange-perfectly are definitely colors to team with khaki pants.
Of course, I would like to immediately note that this option is not suitable for everyone (it is not recommended to completely dress in khaki for blonde girls with light skin and blue eyes, you will simply “get lost” on its background). A brunette with a contrasting appearance and a warm skin tone is worth trying this solution. Total khaki outfit always looks impressive and stylish.
Office Outfits With Khaki Pants
For office style, khaki pants with light chiffon blouses in beige or milky tones are perfect combos. The look can be complemented by a beige double-breasted raincoat with a stand-up collar. For business style, you can try on culottes or “bananas” with a high waist. Style them with printed shirts and suspenders. For the cold period, you can wear classic trousers and a large-knit sweater in a caramel palette. A competent combination of textures will help to balance the militant image. You can complement the office style with lace-up shoes, thick heels or flatforms.
