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.
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.
