Pretty, preppy and super versatile, a khaki blazer does a whole lot more than keep you warm on those cooler days. Perfect for throwing over flirty dresses and skinny jeans, every gal should have at least one blazer in her closet that is a color other than boring black. Finding the right shoes to pair your khaki blazer with doesn’t need to send you into fashion crisis mode. From cute heels to quirky brogues, shake up your look with some fierce footwear.
Leg-lengthening and seriously flattering, nude heels should be your go-to option when you want to make your blazer work for evening events. Beige, nude and creamy hues look effortlessly chic when paired with khaki tones. Try a ditsy tea dress, khaki blazer, brown purse and nude heels for a look that you can work both day and night. Rock a platform-style shoe for instant leg-slimming results.
Black pumps have become a closet staple for good reason. Sure, it may be a safe option, but rock a suede, studded or patent pair if you really want to pack a punch. Team your khaki blazer with a crisp white shirt, black tapered trousers and patent-leather heels for a chic and sophisticated look. A little black dress can instantly be brought to life when you throw your favorite blazer and black high heels into the mix. Add a pair of thick black tights to make your look work throughout the colder seasons.
Don’t fall into the trap of only wearing your blazer for dressy or formal occasions. Thanks to its casual, khaki shade, your structured jacket can do more than just work with tailored trousers. Team your blazer with brown boots, skinny jeans and a simple tee for a cute and cool daytime look. Brown tones are the perfect companion for shades of khaki. Whether you prefer brown cowboy boots, ankle boots or suede over-the-knee boots, your fierce footwear is a surefire way to keep your jeans and blazer suitable for casual days.
Give your look a fashion-forward edge and wear your blazer with a pair of brogues. Sturdy, comfortable and seriously stylish, brogues have been spotted on fashion "it" girls such as Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo. Pair your blazer with opaque tights, brogues and a simple shirt dress for a preppy look. Try rolling up the sleeves of your blazer to give your outfit a dose of attitude. Tan-colored brogues are a timeless classic that can effortlessly complement your khaki blazer.
