Even if you’re remotely interested in the latest trends and fashion, you’ll recognize the chino trend which has been blowing up in markets worldwide. Versatile, fashionable, colorful with slim structures and clean cuts- chinos have established themselves in the mainstream fashion for men.

They can be dressed up and dressed down with ease and look great in every setting, it’s no wonder that they’ve proved to be the staple of this season in menswear.

What Are Chinos?
Originally made for military purposes in colors like Khaki and Beige which aided in camouflaging, chinos were designed to be durable and comfortable. Since they were made in China, people in Spain used to refer to them as Pantalones Chinos, i.e. pants made in China. This got shortened to simplify Chinos in English.
Since then they’ve trickled down to civilian wear, and now they’ve proved to be a major hit in bottom wear for both men and women. They’re the perfect middle ground between the fancy dress pants and the casual denim, which allows them to be dressed up or down as per fancy. Made in cotton and cotton blend fabrics, they’re extremely breathable and lightweight.
The two most important things to consider while styling chinos are Fit and Color. The ideal pair of chinos should be just the right fit, neither too tight nor too baggy. They’ll elongate and streamline your appearance and will look perfect with a tucked in button-down shirt and loafers. Another thing to consider is the length- neither too long nor too short. They should be hemmed just beneath your ankle for a sleek and stylish look.
As for the colors, basic hues like Khakis, Navy and Whites can be styled for countless occasions. Dusty blues and earthly browns will give you a rugged and masculine look, while greens will lend a very smart look to your outfits. Go all out and pick a red chino for a bold and stylish look this summer. If you want only a pair of chinos that’d go with every outfit- navy blue is the color to choose.
