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.
Khaki suits are made for daytime events with loose dress codes. Reinforce the informal aesthetic with a chambray shirt, a striped sweater vest (in a thin cotton that won’t add bulk), and a belt, a bag, and shoes in tan leather or suede. White sneakers—spotless ones—are also a fine complement.
