Summer Trends. How Not to Look Wacky in Khaki

June 19, 2009 • Fashion


You gotta love khaki! It just keeps coming back year after year. What we love most about khaki this season (besides the new GAP designer collaboration collection) is the way it has been updated with a more modern look and feel. Look for zipper and ruffle details for something a little different then the expected pleated pants and military wear. Khaki doesn't have to be stiff or wrinkled. And if you are like me and look like death with khaki near your face, wear it on your bottom half. It matches with everything, even metallics.

    Speaking of great ways to wear khaki…I just found a steal for a pair of absolutely adorable linen kahki trousers from the ADAM line by Adam Lippes! They look exactly like the Chloe pair but but they can go from a pant for spring to a cuffed one for summer! I can wear it full length, cuffed, or rolled but the best part was that they were on SALE (from $185 to $109) and even more of their designer Spring 1 and Spring 2 collection is too!
    If you go to you can sign up for the ADAM e-mail list and get even more special offers too 🙂
