Do you have any tops in your wardrobe that you don’t wear enough because they only really work with one specific colour? lilac white and soft khaki basics

Maybe you’re tired of wearing a certain top with blue jeans, black trousers or white shorts?
You might be looking for a different way to wear your top without looking too colour-crazy or deliberately ‘clashy’.

This top is one of those that struggle to be paired with anything other than blue skinny jeans.
How boring!

love its floaty cotton fabric and over-sized cut.
It’s cool and incredibly comfortable.
Why am I not wearing it more often?

It is ‘supposed’ to be worn with crisp white trousers (or shorts).
It also looks great with blue jeans, which I love (what doesn’t look great with blue jeans?).
Sometimes I want to mix in a different colour to create a ‘new’ look.
Still neutral and basic, just a little fresher.

A khaki colour is the perfect alternative neutral.
Darker khaki works well all year round and a soft, paler khaki looks great in spring and summer.

Khaki goes with countless other colours and there’s a shade to suit everyone.
Anything you fancy will work with khaki.
It’s a brilliant wardrobe workhorse!

It works especially well with tops that involve more than one colour.
Making normally restrictive tops more versatile and wearable.

Khaki is a great alternative to blue denim as a go-to staple.

Maybe you’re looking for a different way to wear a light coloured top and a pair of khaki trousers, jeans, shorts or culottes could be the answer?

This outfit is definitely casual.
I know it could be much more photogenic (and figure flattering) with a leg-lengthening tucked-in top and a pair of less flat shoes.
Platform trainers or wedges or even a nice pair of mules would be perfect.
I needed to be comfortable on my feet today.
Too much running around for heels.
Even the most comfortable heels get left at home on certain days!

{I also had a second bag with me for my essentials. This bag is cute but it only fits a purse, lippy and a phone… the phone is a squeeze too!)

If you wanted to look smarter (or flatter your figure more) you could do some tucking and belting.
Or swap out the khaki chinos for a smarter pair of trousers or even shorts.
You could even add heels.

Anything goes when it comes to styling khaki!
