As we are probably all taking stock of what is in our closets for spring, you should consider a khaki jacket. They seamlessly transition from winter to spring depending on how you style them. They are definitely one of the most versatile and classic pieces of clothing you could own. It’s one that definitely combines functionality with flair.

Throughout history, iconic women have embraced the khaki jacket as a symbol of strength and style. From Audrey Hepburn’s effortlessly chic ensembles to Princess Diana’s timeless elegance, the khaki jacket has graced the shoulders of fashion trailblazers, leaving their mark on the world of style.

What sets the khaki jacket apart is its versatility. Whether you’re running errands on a busy Saturday or attending a casual outdoor gathering, this wardrobe essential will elevate any look. Pair it with jeans and a tee for a laid-back vibe, or layer it over a floral dress for a chic contrast and some great juxtaposition.

Originally developed for military use, the khaki jacket has since evolved into a fashion icon. It’s definitely loved for its timeless appeal and adaptability. The neutral color complements a whole array of colors, which makes it a cornerstone for any girl’s wardrobe. From a classic trench, to a more rugged style….. it suits any occasion.

These three that I’m showing here, are from my own closet. The first (pictured above) is from MOSCHINO, a very high-end brand. I’ve probably owned this jacket for at least twenty years. The peplin style really suits my body-type. I wear it on its own, or layered with a button-down shirt. Absolutely a classic and a keeper. Remember to find a style that suits YOUR figure, it will make all the difference.


The second jacket here is more like a shacket, but still timeless. The tie around the waist is detachable and can be worn, or not. I’ve even worn this one with a snakeskin belt before which really took it up a notch. I think this was the first khaki trench coat I ever bought, at NORDSTROM.

My third jacket is from ANTHROPOLOGIE. What got me on this one back then, was the bling on the collar. The striped detail is unique and adds something out of the ordinary. I love the fit… cropped with some shape to it. A tip here…. if you like a lot of the same thing, make sure that each one is a little different.



In conclusion, the khaki jacket for women is more than just a garment. It’s a symbol of timeless sophistication and versatility. So this spring, consider elevating your wardrobe with this classic piece and discover endless possibilities for style expression.


  1. A few years ago my Daughter and I bought a Khaki and a red short Jackets last time we were in Germany visiting Family for about 25.00 Euro’s each. I am sure glad we did because we sure get a lot of wear out of them. Always so lovely to see your post. Rita
