The return of the chino started a couple of years ago with last year being the real re-establishment of its presence in the wardrobe. It is a now a wardrobe piece that morphs with the fads of the season so don't feel foolish if your current chinos look a tad dated.
This season you need to inject colour to your chino. Now that doesn't thankfully mean brights, that is reserved for the capri pant. It does mean think pink..but more a dusky pink or an ecru with a slight pink hue. It also means think tobacco not khaki and even a burnt orange or apricot. If you've got an olive or khaki pair and want to save rather than spend, then wear these with brights particularly white or a wide Prada-esque bright stripe and you'll get away with it.
