Outfit Details: Forever 21 Crop Top, GAP Girlfriend Chino, Emu Ibis Sandals
When it comes to real life style, there are pieces that work – and pieces that don’t. While fashion is subjective, comfort is not – and we all know what it’s like to wear something uncomfortable. My style always has a thread of comfort and practicality to it, because like many of you – I have a normal life with normal responsibilities that require real life clothing choices. Until recently, I thought the practicality factor of my wardrobe was pretty solid. That is, until I tried on a pair of chinos.
While we were away in Europe, I pretty much lived in these pants. I was surprised by how versatile, comfortable, and easy to style they were and they quickly became my most worn and most loved item for our travels. Today I am sharing a few reasons why I know you’ll LOVE chinos just as much as I do (and why you need to grab a pair ASAP!)
Why you need a pair of chinos asap.
They are Super Comfortable
Like I mentioned above, comfort is key to creating a style that you’ll actually wear. Life is unpredictable, and it requires clothing which will endure whatever comes your way while also not sacrificing your sense of style. Chinos do just that. There is a carefree, and effortless ease to them, they are incredibly comfortable, and they dress up or down easily.
They perfect the “laid back” summer style look
Summer is the time of year to really embrace your inner beach bum. The effortless laid back style of summer lends to comfortable and easy to wear pieces like chinos, boyfriend jeans, and airy sundresses. My ideal summer look tends to boil down to a slouchy pair of pants, a pretty eyelet shirt, and a pair of sandals.
They work for the office, and for everywhere else.
The thing about chinos is that they don’t just work perfectly for dressed-down looks. They can be dressed up, too. These pants work as double duty in your wardrobe as they easily transition from a sophisticated daytime office look to a casual evening look with minimal changes. Simply trade in your button-up blouse and kitten heels for a camisole tanktop and a cute pair of sandals.
