What to wear with chinos

Chinos are a menswear superhero because of how versatile they are. When you’re sick of your jeans, chinos work just as well with almost everything. Smarten up chinos by pairing them with leather shoes and a shirt - or even a blazer and tie. Dress them down with a t-shirt and trainers. Just make sure the trainers have a simple shape. Pair your chinos with desert boots and a bomber jacket for a day to night outfit.

More than just jeans

Denim doesn’t have to just be for jeans. A denim jacket is a great alternative option – lightweight but still stylish – and casual enough to be worn with anything.

Casual-smart, not smart-casual

For a new take on smart-casual, downplay the smart, and lean into relaxed. In other words, team minimalist white trainers with navy chinos and a navy or black polo. Perfect pretty much anywhere.

Monochromatic magic

The key thing about wearing head-to-toe black is to ensure your shades match up. Washed out blacks can instantly downgrade a look, as can an out-of-place brown shoe or belt.

Chinos can take the place of formal trousers

Worn in the right way (and in the right colour) a pair of neutral chinos can sub in for formal trousers. Here, they've been smartly styled with a shirt and cardigan.

Upgrade your tee

Smarter than a t-shirt but more comfortable than a shirt, a polo plays nicely with chinos and jeans. Feel free to tuck it in if you’re wearing a belt.

Open up your look

Unless it's cold, bomber jackets tend to look best left open. That way you can create some nice contrast in tone and texture with the tee underneath.

Several shades of blue

Wearing complementary tones, like differing shades of blue, is a nice alternative to the traditional white shirt and chinos look – it’s smart, but feels more modern.
