When spring arrives and the temperatures start to warm up, there is no better suit for the season than a khaki cotton suit. The lighter fabric is perfect for spring weather but can definitely work hard for you all the way through the summer months as well. Here is the first in a series of three ways to wear a khaki suit.
Just like a pair of khaki chinos, a khaki suit can be seen as a blank canvas. There are literally so many different ways to approach a look, it was difficult for me to choose just a few ways to show it.
That said, I have been a big fan of monochromatic looks lately. I love their crispness, simplicity, and elegance. It is refreshing to keep it clean, basic, and extra subtle every once in a while and it can definitely be an unexpected way to make a surprisingly bold statement.
When keeping everything in a look in the same color family, an easy way to break up the monotony is to include accessories with subtle or interesting patterns. A club tie or perforated brogue style shoe, for example, are great choices.
While a khaki suit looks great put together, if you have one you also have a couple of great separates as well. The jacket alone is an extremely versatile piece.
