Just when you thought black was your simple go-to color that could be paired with everything -- then along comes navy. When wearing a pair of navy khakis, you'll find many colors pair well with them. If you're looking to pull out the best sweater to match your casual pants, choose solids, colorful brights or even prints.


Navy and white are perfect colors to kick start a nautical look. Pair your white sweater with a matching white tank, and wrap a wide gold belt around your waist. Add red accessories such as stud earrings, a thin bangle bracelet and a hobo bag to polish off this look. Slip on a comfortable pair of strappy sandals or textured flip-flops for a relaxed style.


Brighten up your style by pairing your navy pants with a bold yellow sweater. Leave the white tank underneath, and slip white stud earrings in your ears. Add a thin red belt around your waist, and wear matching red flats. Pull your hair back into a messy bun, and head out for brunch with your friends or to the coffee shop to catch up on some reading. Complete this look with an oversized yellow cocktail ring.


Wear a gray off-the-shoulder top with your navy khaki pants. Include a navy sweater to match. Instead of wearing the sweater, tie it loosely around your shoulders for a preppy look. Add polka-dot printed wedge sandals, and slip on bold-colored accessories to add zing to your otherwise muted ensemble. Try an emerald green hobo bag and a wooden bracelet painted with a designer print.


Find a print sweater, perhaps in blue and white stripes or red and white paisley, to match your navy khaki pants. Add a contrasting scarf such a mustard color as a decorative accessory. Slip into a pair of metallic strappy sandals, and pair with a matching metallic oversized flap clutch tucked under your arm. Finish this look with long metallic necklaces, and dust your eyelids in a pewter or gold color.
