    Khaki pants were all the rage during the 2007 Balenciaga show, but its only lately that I've noticed people embracing the trend. Is it time to head to the nearest Gap?

    Ive never liked them but Im kind of liking them a bit now & thinking about getting some cheap ones I saw at H&M I have the same pants in bright pink & their great but do I get the khaki? I kind of like the looks above... or most of them.

    i love the colour
    would wear it as a top

    i think it's nicer if there isn't too much contrast between the top and khaki pants
    like a lot of the looks here in post#1 it's paired with a dark jacket
    and it draws a lot of attention to the slightly dusty dirty colour of the pants (i mean it is inspired by military uniform worn in the desert isn't it)

    i like this.. Calvin Klein prefall 2008

    they also have a jacket where the khaki is more brushed on
    a little aged, has a nice effect.. would be nice as pants

    I think they hardly ever look good on anyone.

    I think they're great for work.. and when paired with a blazer. Or rolled up. Very chic and sophisticated when done right.

    Could work with flat oxfords, heeled oxfords, gladiators, platforms, etc.
