How to Wear Khaki Shoes and Nail the Greenery Trend

5th January 2017.

Why just eat your greens when you can wear them? Slay Pantone’s colour of the year greenery in our favourite steezy shade. Get ready, bae, it’s time to read the official Public Desire guide on how to wear khaki shoes.

How to Wear Khaki Shoes

Did you get the memo, bae? The 2017 scene is green, ’cause the Pantone colour of the year is greenery. Remember how we were all obsessed with pink and rose gold last year? Guess who was behind it. And need we mention our obsession with bordeaux, oxblood and burgundy the year before? Basically, if Pantone says greens are good for you, it’s time for us to pay attention.

It’s time go green and add a lil bit of greenery to your wardrobe. Here’s our guide to phreshening up and how to wear khaki shoes.

Things are Lookin’ Rosy

Think green’s a hard colour to wear with anything other than the basics? Think again. This is how to wear khaki with a beautiful blush pink shade, and we’re more than a lil obsessed with the colour combo.

Try to keep your pink more blush than neon, as the soft hues will work perfectly in anyone’s spring wardrobe.

With the Band

When it doubt, a band tee will always style it out. Make like Karie and match a pair of peep toe over the knee boots with an oversized band tee for instant sass in two simple steps. You might not’ve woken up like this, but at least you’ll kill it the moment you step out the door.

As khaki’s quite a toned down colour, feel free to pair it with a clashing logo.

Go Black and Green

If there was ever a colour combo we could get on board with, it’s all black with khaki shoes. We love this eezy look that’s simple styling at its sleekest: just take an oversized knit jumper dress and pair with your phreshest khaki thigh high boots and go.

The New Nude

We’re never gonna say goodbye to nudes completely, but khaki is definitely heading to the top of our wishlists when it comes to trying out a new neutral. We love how Kayleigh has paired her khaki ankle boots with pinky shades of nude for a beaut casj outfit.

Eezy Shades

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. We’re still obsessed with the shades shown at the Yeezy show, so we’re styling things out this season in khaki, black and grey. As long as all the tones are muted, you’ll be sure to kill it.

A Pair a Day

If you’re wondering how to wear khaki shoes during the day, try going for a pair of chunky heeled boots. Block heels will be comfy for wear during the day, so don’t be too concerned about the height. We love these over the knee boots and their lace up detailing, perfect for adding a lil edge to Emma’s otherwise preppy ensemble.

Matchy Matchy

Of course, if you’re not sure about which colours to match with khaki shoes, simply colourblock it. Steph pairs her khaki sock boots with a khaki skirt and the pair were made for each other. We love how she’s also added a bright yellow biker jacket to add a lil pop of colour to her otherwise muted tone outfit.

Lace x Leather

If you’re all about texture, mix things up. This is how to wear khaki if you want to make thing luxe, and we’re obsessed with all the little details. Cris has taken a long sleeved eyelash lace hem dress and layered it under a wrap leather skirt. Sounds a bit “fashion”, but we love how everything is tied together as her khaki shoes and dress match.

Killer Model Kicks

And, of course, how could we not mention Gigi? We love how Gigi Hadid wore Public Desire while killing the game in NYC, and she’s absolutely nailed styling khaki camo.
