KHAKI - FOR SPRING? NOW THAT ACTUALLY IS GROUNDBREAKING. I INVITE YOU TO FORGET EVERYTHING YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW ABOUT THE FORMERLY UTILITARIAN + PRACTICAL COLOUR. KHAKI IS NOW A GO TO FOR STYLE SEEKERS DUE TO ITS WEARABILITY + TRANSEASONALITY.
If the last few seasons of 70's inspired clashing prints + bold colours have taught us anything it's that there really are no rules anymore. No longer is khaki thought of as a safe choice or even a colour you can only wear in cooler months. I like to think of it as an all-year-rounder + a summer colour for winter dressers. It pairs well with dark colours like black + navy, but try it out with tones that spring fashion is renowned for, like pastels or light linens + I promise you won't be disappointed.
The power of khaki lies in its versatility + its power to transform your entire look. For example, put a khaki bag on with a pair of combat boots + a floral piece for an unexpected yet very now look that's just the right combination of pretty + tough.
We’re calling it early at Studio Sans Beast - khaki is one of our top picks for this Spring/ Summer season. For our Series 6 collection we’ve taken some of our much loved pieces + reimagined them in khaki toned fabrics, plus we’ve added in some brand new khaki styles.
Here are my top khaki picks just in time for you to #BeastBloom:
We heard you beauties; we know you love this one so we've given it new life in khaki. The Khaki Petite Smuggler features everything we know you already like about this fave, but ups the glam with shiny gold hardware, making it a perfect day to night piece + much more than your average bum bag. All in all, a perfect style statement this season.
We’ve also added a new feature strap to the collection, so the Barricade Strap fans have another option - the Corridor Strap. The stripes featured on The Corridor give the piece an athletic luxe mood. Just remember, the strap we use for the Petite Smuggler is purposely shorter than your standard strap. This is so it sits perfectly as a belt bag - however if you like a longer hang on the body, then the Corridor or the Barricade is for you.
Versatility is key with the Smuggler, which is why it's so popular. Pair it across the body with your fave Spring mini - bonus points if it’s pink - the green undertones help warmer colours pop. Or style it as a belt bag with a pair of high waisted wide leg jeans or pants. This look is chic + it will elongate the legs + cinch the waist.
The Lobby is one of our new crossbody bag styles. It’s a modern + sleek piece featuring clean lines + our signature Ox turnlock hardware. Its shape is slightly new for Sans Beast but we’ve made sure we’ve kept the features you love in our other crossbody bag styles such as multiple gussets, card holders + a pocket to fit your smartphone.
The Khaki Python is my personal favourite colourway of The Lobby. The pops of yellow are vibrant + fun, plus I’m a sucker for gold hardware. The Lobby launches just in time for events season (or as I’ve named it this year “OMG we’re allowed to leave the house” season).
Daring beauties should let their imagination run wild. Pair our Khaki (faux) Python with your favourite print. Styling it with other prints will only make it look bolder + more opinionated. Of course, if you want your bag to be the key focal point of your outfit, the Khaki Python Lobby pairs perfectly with denim or neutrals like white, ivory + beige. Rest assured this one will soon become your fave vegan crossbody bag.
Our signature boxy, crossbody / belt bag style hasn’t been forgotten this season. Up your everyday look with the affectionately named Bando - now in khaki. This piece is functional + directional by nature + a great everyday piece to carry your most essential treasures. It’s cool + effortlessly versatile.
If you want to mix it up + create your own unique look I'm feeling the Lilac Bandolier with a Khaki Corridor Strap. The juxtaposition of the pastel lilac + the darker khaki tones are unexpected yet perfectly complement each other. I promise you’ll have strangers stopping you on the street asking you where you got your bag from (or if they don't, I'm sure they'll want to!)
So never fear, there’s no need to feel like you’re wearing a uniform or playing it safe when you choose khaki. Shop our Series 6 khaki collection here.
