This SS17 sees chino trousers becoming an alternative to jeans…what?? But what about my skinnies?…I can hear the cries now. I am constantly trying to wear something other than denim and chinos have become an option which is practical, can look smart or casual…or smart casual. There will always be denim days but it is good to know there is something else out there which we can turn to.
Red chinos by Zara – add a pop of colour with these chinos. I have this pair and they feel great and fit really well.
Girlfriend pinstripe chinos by Gap – they have the look of jeans but are smart enough as a work option as well.
Cropped trousers by Hush – these simple black trousers are a brilliant option for work, rest or play.
Straight leg trousers by Rag & Bone – I love a side stripe on a trouser and these have just the right amount of a relaxed feel, ready for Summer.
Stretch cotton trousers by Helmut Lang – I love the fit of Helmet Lang denim so these, with a huge 60% off at The Outnet are calling to me…
Relaxed pants by Baukjen – these are the perfect chino I feel. The colour is ideal for Spinrg/Summer and the fit is flattering yet slightly relaxed in style. Team with a white shirt and loafers for a cool, preppy look.
Slim leg chino by No. 21 – in the sale at Matches fashion with 50% off – these are great for weekends and relaxed days with the family. Team with some trainers and a knit for a weekend vibe.
Slim fit chino by Marks & Spencer – a more utility style of chino, brighten with a pop of pink in any shade you like.
