How to Wear a Khaki Suit

A black wool suit and the summer sun don't mix. Learn the tricks to master the season's sand-hued alternative.

With the right accessories, khaki can take you from office to dinner party—and you'll never look like you're about to go on safari.
A khaki suit can be just as elegant as a dark one. The trick is to skip the bright colors and stick with an otherwise black-and-white palette: a crisp white shirt with a starched collar, a black tie adorned with a silver tie bar, and a belt and a briefcase in glossy coal-colored leather. Add an alabaster pocket square and the outfit’s as refined as a tux.
