Our Top 5 Trends for Summer in the City, Presented by Old Khaki

Inspired by a hot tropical summer in old Cuba.

In keeping with what’s hot this season, Old Khaki has infused their SS18 collection with the heart and soul of a sultry, hot tropical summer in old Cuba. Picture bright-painted facades and vintage cars parked on cobbled streets that instantly leave you feeling like you’re on holiday. Let’s have a look at this season’s top five trends for summer in the city, presented by Old Khaki.

1 Dark colours accentuated by vibrant prints

This season’s palette features the still-popular Millennial pink along with berry pink, yellow and olive green. Think vivid floral or jungle prints on a dark base with contrasting white tops, shorts or dresses that provide cool relief on hot summer days.

2 Embroidered, off-the-shoulder dresses

Dress them up or down. The range comes in a vintage-inspired, washed-back palette of summer pastels that progress into a summer palette of bold magenta, orange and tropical colours.

3 Modern Havana shirts

This season’s must-have. Old Khaki has given the iconic Havana shirt a twist with palm-tree prints that will look great with a Panama hat and a pair of denim shorts.

4 Quintessential sneakers 

The ultimate everyday shoes. They look great with dresses, or worn with ankle-grazer skinny jeans. They work when you’re hitting the streets or the heading to the bar. Wear them with a crisp white sundress and a denim jacket draped over your shoulders for sunset drinks.

5 Culottes

Pair them with sneakers or sandals and a white top for a chic summer look.

The first items are already available in-store and online at Oldkhaki.co.za, with more items being added throughout October, November and December.
