Style Theory: The Khaki Jacket...the ideal layering item to throw over your vest tops and denim shorts on cooler summer evenings and days.
The khaki jacket is a cool alternative to a denim jacket, it looks as good over a casual denim dress as a smarter midi dress. It dresses down a dressed up outfit perfectly. Here are some styling ideas:
|With leather shorts and a floaty top|
|Add a touch of glamour and colour with a beautiful bright statement necklace and beaded clutch.|
|The khaki jacket looks fab with skorts and a breton, dressed up with a beautiful pearl statement necklace.|
|Slung over a black maxi dress...note how fabulous a red bag looks with the khaki coloured jacket.|
|Just love everything about this look..especially the dress.|
