Go Green: The New Way to Wear Khaki

If you're UK-based, I'm going to go ahead and assume you've been shooting longing glances at these palazzo pants through the window of your local M&S for the last month or so, since pretty much every woman I've spoken to recently seems to have fallen victim to the evil genius of their latest visual merchandising campaign. I managed to hold out until a "20% Off Everything" email plopped into my inbox, and then it was all systems go - after all, I'm only human, and even at full price (£35), they're a bit of a steal.

Going green has to be the perfect way to take your '70s style staples into autumn (that skirt will soon be undergoing a military-style makeover too...) - and don't palazzos, midis and heels make for a far-too-long-awaited and ever-so-refreshing alternative to full-on combat gear? 1998 has been and gone, people! And, whilst its muted tones mesh effortlessly with neutrals, muted needn't mean dull, by any means - a pop of neon yellow will liven things up a treat - so of course I had to slip this canary-hued hobo into my virtual shopping basket... you know, while I was there (and anyway, at £29.50 it's going for a song).
