A fitted pair of khaki pants is a fashion must-have for any well-rounded wardrobe. The success of your khaki look is all about pairing those pants with the right top. Whether you are a sucker for classics or you're aiming to go bold, experimenting with color on top will open up those plain old pants to a whole new world of style.
Nude and Neutral
Khakis give you a neutral palette to work with when you're polishing off your look, and nothing looks crisper or cleaner than an equally neutral top. A head-to-toe nude-toned look is summery and light, and a few colorful accessories provide a seamless transition from daytime to nighttime. No matter which khaki shade you have on the bottom, a classic white button-down offers a timeless complement. Other shades of khaki, even if they aren't exact matches, are also options in the neutral line up. If you're worried about looking washed out, break up the nude with a dark belt, a bold necklace or a more textured top with eyelet or ruching detail to create shadows and depth.
The style dreams of preppy girls are made of khaki pants, and a nautical-inspired color scheme for your tops is a fail-proof plan for this look. If you are looking for solids, think polo pastels in pale green, baby pink or sky blue for a look that is young and fresh. If you want a more mature look, opt for navy blue -- navy blue cardigans with cream-colored details or navy blue button-downs with white stitching. Finish off your look with classic gold accents in your jewelry, belt buckle or clutch.
