How to wear tow chinos casually

When it comes to chinos, many people associate them with business casual or formal work outfits. They don’t seem to have anything to do with casual wear. The truth is that you can also achieve a young and elegant casual look if you really pay attention to how you style them properly. Jeans are still my favorite piece for causal outfits, no doubt about that. But it’s always good to add variety to your everyday outfit. You have 365 days a year. You want to try different things not to surprise people but to make them happy just by having fun. In this blog post, I’m going to share some of my favorite ways to wear chinos casually.

At first glance, wearing beige chinos offers two major benefits. First, the color is subtle enough that it doesn’t pull focus away from the top of your body. Second, they’re usually just straight-leg pants that are pretty easy to take off for any body type. Returning to this outfit, as a chic and casual way to wear the beige chinos, pair them with a white vest top with a sheer overlay and leather ankle boots. Don’t miss the little touches like leather bracelets, belts and rolled chinos to make your legs look longer.

This outfit looks very simple but is actually a low key sexy outfit. The low-waisted chinos and sandals focus on the upper part of your body. Therefore, you can wear something beautiful and subtly sexy, like a semi-sheer white t-shirt. The coolest thing about this outfit is that no one will think you’re making an effort to look sexy. They are only attracted to you without knowing why.

I just shared some outfit ideas that include white tops simply because these chinos are easy to wear with white tops. If you want to try a black top, you probably need to pay a little more attention to the combination of color and cut to avoid an imbalance. As a good example, this outfit consists of a black cropped t-shirt and brown chinos. Roll up your chinos and pair them with canvas slip-on sneakers.

I sometimes think that you can wear white jeans and white chinos interchangeably. The jeans actually look better than the chinos with casual outfits, but chinos are often more comfortable to wear. So it’s not bad to have a choice. To wear the white chinos casually, you can wear a long-sleeved dark blue and white horizontally striped t-shirt. Pair the outfit with black and white canvas shoes.

Another popular color for the chinos is olive green. The color itself seems very pleasing to look at, so styling it casually is pretty easy. You can easily combine the green chinos with a white sweater and white sneakers. If you want to add some character to the outfit, you can wear chukka boots instead.

As a beautiful casual outfit idea using some layering tricks, it can probably make you look slimmer and taller. You want to wear a plaid shirt and layer it with a gray sweater. Pair them with cuffed chinos and flats with fleece shoes. I love the perfect balance of this outfit achieved with the perfect layering. Just give it a try because it’s not too difficult to pull off. Just make sure you have the details and the right balance.

It’s very interesting that loose-fitting gray chinos actually make you look a bit sporty. It has to be because it reminds me of the gray joggers. A light gray cable sweater and gray cuffed chinos make a good casual outfit. Pair them with white sneakers to complete the outfit.

So it can be argued that a shirt is not part of this blog post focused on casual wear. I would argue that the denim shirt sits right on the line between casual and business casual.
