It’s summer. It’s hot. You’re hot. If you’re looking to put away your denim in favor of something a little lighter, this is what to do.
When you’re getting dressed, think in contrasts. Neon and camo. Cotton and nylon. Snug and loose. Smooth and rough. Plain and patterned. Once you start mixing and matching pieces in your wardrobe, you’ll find that a lot of supposed opposites in fact complement each other. You’ll be looking good — effortlessly good — and that’s what summer is all about. That’s what it’s for.
Let’s be honest: a lot of us are set in our ways. We’ve got our jeans we like, and we don’t really deviate unless someone’s getting married. A good chino, though, subs in just fine for your favorite denim. Whether you like your pants slim or loose, tapered or cropped, the chino is a cooler, breezier alternative that expands your wardrobe without sacrificing what you’re about.
