Hi, I'm Tina Gill with Worthwhile Style, and today I'm going to show you how to wear khaki pants in the Wintertime. So, first and foremost, you want to go with something a little bit darker than what you've been wearing during Spring and Summer and the reason is that lighter colors scream Summer months. So by pairing a little bit darker fabric in your khaki pant with some other darker accents, this is going to take you well into Fall all the way into Winter. Something else that you might want to think about is finding a fabric that's more of a three season wool versus a cotton. This also is going to be a better transition into Fall and into Winter and heavier weight wool is perfect for Winter and most of them come lined. So it's going to add that extra little layer that you may need on those cold cold Winter days. So I've created two outfits for us here today. First, this is a little bit more casual outfit. You could still wear this to the workplace. It's got a jacket. It's got great detail here and a nice darker khaki pant in a plaid. So, this is really nice if you work in a creative industry or your dress code isn't super business professional. So a nice drapy shirt, a belt here at the smallest part of your waist and this really cool military style jacket. The same look, you can make a little bit more conservative by adding a nice pop of color, a button down shirt under a V neck sweater. This too with this khaki pant is going to be a great complement for a business office. One thing to keep in mind when you're wearing your khaki pants is what shoes are you going to wear for Fall and Winter. What I recommend for the office is wearing something like this and this and this is a pointed toe leather boot. It has a slight heel to it, it works great with a wide legged trouser, this khaki pant here works perfect with this because what it does is the point of the toe elongates the line of your leg and it makes you appear taller, longer and leaner. So it makes you appear thinner and who doesn't love that. With this outfit or the more business casual outfit, this boot is going to be a great complement to wearing khaki pants in the Wintertime. So remember go a little bit heavier weight and a little bit darker fabric and you can't go wrong with khakis in Winter. I'm Tina Gill with Worthwhile Style. Thanks for watching.
