14 Neutral Looks That Are Anything But Boring

Fashion’s favorite spring neutral—khaki—got a major upgrade this season, driven by new styles from brands such as Prada, Miu Miu and Givenchy, which offered it up as everything from structured bustiers to pale paper-like dresses. Beige cotton drill, a fabric typically associated with vintage wartime attire, workwear and school uniforms, has now been reintroduced in new shapes that range from sexy to austere. A strapless belted minidress with cargo pockets from Hedi Slimane at Celine resembles a uniform even a Girl Scout would approve of. Childhood chinos have graduated to sultry crop tops and box-pleat ultra-mini skirts at Miu Miu. A boiler suit from Isabel Marant, here worn open at the top with a

bra and a pair of sleek black Manolo Blahnik mules, even transforms traditional workwear into an evening-appropriate ensemble. The season is also full of new versions of tan gabardine trench coats. If you’re unable to choose just one, layering two from The Row adds luxuriously effortless texture. Don’t worry about doubling up—mixing khaki pieces is a move that will never fail. —Jenny Hartman
