Get your Memorial Day Weekend style sorted (without breaking the bank!) with a new pair of men’s chinos, the all-round and affordable bottom half that goes with anything and everything. Struggling for outfit ideas? Then let style expert and menswear designer extraordinaire Martell Campbell offer some smart, casual, classic and modern suggestions on how to wear chinos. "I like chinos because they are very versatile,” states Campbell. “Whether it be a t-shirt with boat shoes or a smart shirt with brogues, you can never go wrong with chinos. Shop the looks and get the latest style advice now.
For a more casual approach to chinos, try a brighter summer colour and combine them with some comfy plimsolls. Don’t be afraid to wear a straw hat either, although we can’t always have beach weather, we can have summer fashion!
Chinos look great when dressed smart and are a fantastic alternative when trousers just don’t cut it. Wear with brogues, a heritage blazer and a coloured shirt for modern style that will impress at the dinner table and on the street.
With the new Great Gatsby movie making waves in the fashion world, go for a waistcoat, tie and smart shoes to get an easy (and cheaper) version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s New York elitist style.
You can never go wrong with a white shirt when it comes to figuring out what to wear with chinos; it’ll always look good. Show off your coloured socks to bring out the outfit’s potential – a little can go a long way.
