Khaki is a color name that can refer to different shades of tan or brown, depending on the context and the language.

It is a slightly desaturated orange color, which means that it has some gray mixed in.

It can be paired with other warm colors, such as red, orange, yellow or brown, or with cool colors, such as blue, green or purple, to create different color schemes.

Some examples of colors that go well with khaki are navy, olive, burgundy, turquoise, coral or lavender.

Khaki is a versatile color that can be used for different purposes and occasions.
