Military Hues

'Gold rush' lurex tank c/o Mink Pink
Khaki trench coat: c/o Mink Pink

Green is a colour I definitely want to wear more often! There's something about this earthy tone of green/brown that is so understated but classic. White in my opinion is probably the best shade to pair with khaki- and you can see below some other outfits that mix with white for a fail-safe colour combination. I wanted to play and experiment with other variations of green and yellow as well, so I went for this shiny lurex-style cropped knit in a dirty chartreuse shade, and darker boots in a colour closer to taupe and brown.

There are so many other ways you can wear this beautiful khaki green! Now that fall is coming up for everyone who resides in the Northern Hemisphere (over in Australia we're opposite seasons so spring is arriving for us!) naturally styles will shift towards a more earthy colour palette. Consequently all the jackets and coats coming out now are in beautiful mustards, wine reds, greys and khakis! You can go for a long-line khaki cardigan like the one I'm wearing, which is quite lightweight and perfect for transitioning from warmer temperatures. 

Alternatively you can opt for a shorter, smarter shape with a cropped blazer jacket! You can check out the range from Shopbop here. Now that the runways are bringing a consistent military theme back in style, look even more polished and sleek with luxurious gold buttons and shoulder pads for added structure. My favourite is this little pea coat by Tibi, featuring a pop of red piping trim on one side for a striking contrast.

This amazing Anika dress by Shoshanna instantly caught my eye as well- it's like the military jackets above transformed into a dress! Once again, the buttons down the front give a polished finish and you can easily wear it with boots or tights.

Don't forget about complementing accessories as well! Furla stock so many cute and versatile satchel and cross body bags, in a huge range of colours to suit any outfit. This one called 'Metropolis' will prevent your outfit looking overly monochrome or dull, with a textured gold metallic finish that's still neutral.

With shoes, it's all about boots moving into the next season, and I'm actually quite impressed with Kendall and Kylie's footwear range! Both the boots pictured are from their range, and are reasonably priced. Go for a Victorian touch with the lace-up style on both the front and back of the grey 'Liza' booties, or a classic pointed toe and comfy stacked heel with the olive 'Finley' booties.
