If you aren’t into pastels (like me), one of the easiest ways to lighten up your wardrobe for Spring is to start with a khaki top. I have always loved anything with “safari” details, as well as a camp shirts–those kind of pieces inspired by uniforms. Proof they are eternally chic? Betty Catroux in her YSL from the late Sixties (above) still looks right today.
What can you wear one of these pieces with? Everything. Literally. Jeans, black pants, a skirt, a floral dress, even chiffon. Pretty much every color under the rainbow too. From the most tailored and basic, to the most feminine and frilly, a khaki or army green jacket or top is a go-with-it-all evergreen.
