Style guide for men: How to wear chinos

Chinos were presented as baggier trousers with front darts – plainly everything a beautiful fellow ought to avoid! Be that as it may, in the course of the last couple of years the style offerings have changed in accordance with the contemporary fasionistas.

“Chinos can be a decent decision for any event be it an easygoing lunch or formal meeting or film day out. In any case, picking a right match of chinos for a right event is hard for gentlemen,” says creator Banik Walia of BaniRamaa.

“When you search for a chino, in particular search for a fitted style, no looseness around the hips, no overabundance fabric in the ascent and the butt range and no front darts. The leg shape ought to be as per your inclination. In the event that you feel great with a thin fit than put it all on the line yet a straight leg fit or contraband fit will do pretty much as fine,” says Ketan Jansari, classification supervisor – Outwear and Non Denim Bottoms, Numero Uno Clothing Ltd.


The most effective method to wear them:

Wearing a chino every day may appear somewhat of a drag, yet in the event that you wear these jeans right then it could without a doubt stop people in their tracks around.

*Play formal: During the weekday you can pick a fitted cotton shirt in stripes or gingham with perhaps a cotton tie or even a fun plaidbow-tie under a jacket or a cotton coat, combined with calfskin loafer or some other type of cowhide shoes/boots. This makes for the best proficient look.

In the event that brandishing a tie is verging on excessively much for you then go for a decent match of imperial blue/white formal shirt with beige or tan shading chinos.

“You can never turn out badly with a naval force blue-white stripe shirt with tan shading chinos and blurred naval force blue jacket with a decent cocoa formal road average shoes for your office wear,” says Walia.

However, bear in mind to add a stainless steel watch to your wrist. This would unquestionably be the executioner look of the day.


Or else, a simple tan coloured chinos with a button down checks shirt, a plain base knitted tie, brown leather belt and nicely polished brown shoes at work will do the trick.

*Go casual: For after hours and for a weekend/easy/casual look, pair it with a chambray shirt or a striped long sleeve T (both with rolled up sleeves) and accessorise it with some vintage accessories, maybe even a hat. “If you insist on being trendy then go ahead and roll up your chino and pair them with a fun casual looking sneakers like a coloured converse or a vintage style military boots,” says Jansari.

You can also team your chinos with casual t-shirts, polos, cardigans and hoodies in pastel colours. Just don’t forget to add a tint of colour to your wrist with a funky watch and a braided leather belt around your waist. Complete the look with crisp white sneakers.

*Colour coding: Chinos look right when they are in their best that is – khakis, greys and browns. These are both classy and fit for tees in different colours.


Designers at John Players say, “For a more neutral look go with the regular blacks and make an impact. The trick is to pair up according to the weather and occasion. Chinos paired up with cotton tees is a summer saver.

You can also make a regular chino look stylish with a matching belt, hat or sunglasses.”
