Three Ways to Wear Chinos

The best thing about chinos is their effortless versatility. Changing the look of your chinos is as simple as making a few edits to your outfit, ensuring you’re dressed appropriately for any context.

CHINOS 101: A brief history

Chinos were first designed to be used by the military but, endured over time to become an icon of menswear, because of their simplicity, functionality, and durability. Made from hardwearing 100% cotton, chinos are a go-to choice for simple men’s style and the perfect companion for a modern man on the go.

STYLE 1: THE WORK UNIFORM

If your workplace calls for business casual, then you can’t go wrong with a pair of chinos. Treat your favorite pair of chinos like dress trousers, and pair them with work-appropriate separates like a crisp shirt and blazer.

Style Tip: Colour is key for corporate environments. Opt for neutral shades that are easy on the eye like Caramel, Chestnut, Sand or Stone

STYLE 2: KEEP IT CASUAL

For a daytime event, you can get away with chinos by treating them just like you would your favorite pair of jeans. Chinos are a great denim substitute, pairing easily with a casual shirt or simple tee and sneakers.

STYLE 3: HIT THE TOWN

Don’t look past your chinos when putting together an outfit for a night out. Pair your chinos with a stylish leather belt, formal button-down shirt, and smart shoes.

Style Tip: Add an extra touch of sophistication to your style by throwing on a fitted blazer for cooler summer nights.
