Easy to wear and cool without trying too hard, utility dressing is always a good idea, and this season’s go-to staple is a classic khaki jacket.

For off-duty styling notes, be inspired by Yoyo Cao’s military masterclass: simply balance the masculine undercurrents of khaki by adding softer fabrics; a silk shirt, loose pants, skirt or a ladylike print. Emulate Annina Mislin’s oversized suit co-ord and team with a boyfriend tee or turtleneck, or use it to add a military-inspired edge to a clean white summer look – Julia Haghjoo makes a strong case for that approach. Need something that will work day to night? We like Caroline Daur’s take: belt your jacket at the waist with a pair of heeled boots, then simply switch-up with a barely-there sandal.

Where to go for a khaki jacket you’ll still be wearing in years to come? Saint Laurent and Vince have classic cuts, while Joseph and Totême offer a more modern take. Quick march…
