How to style Khaki Pants
Khakis are versatile, despite their status as business casual. These styling tips will help you incorporate the pants into a new outfit.
Be a classic prepster. For a classic look at the golf club, pair your khakis and loafers with a polo shirt and a leather belt.
Contrast colors and fabrics. Khakis are neutral in color so they can be paired with bright colors, no matter how you dress them. They can be paired with different textures and are therefore very adaptable. To create a multi-layered look, you can wear a leather jacket or jeans over a textured shirt.
Reduce the length of your pants. Khakis look great with a casual outfit. You can pair them with a T-shirt, hoodie or sneakers. Double-rolling the legs of the khakis up can make them more casual. The method works if you are familiar with how to cuff jeans.
You can go for a more formal look. You can make your khakis part your work outfit by wearing a button-down shirt with a cardigan or jacket.
Monochromatic ensembles are a good option. Pair Khaki with earth tones such as olive green and brown. Try creating gradients from the head to the toe.
