5 Times You’ll Be Glad You Own A Pair Of Chinos

Chinos are one of the most underrated clothing items out there. They are stylish, timeless, versatile, and easy to care for. If you don’t already have at least one pair of chinos in your closet, you should remedy that as soon as possible, but if you need more convincing, here are five instances you’ll be glad to own a pair of chinos.

You’re Sick Of Jeans

If you’re anything like most people, you wear denim pretty often. You likely own several pairs of jeans, and probably have a trusty favorite pair that you wear the most. Denim is tried and true – it’s comfortable and goes with just about anything. But sometimes you just don’t want to wear your jeans, and chinos are a great replacement. They go with just about anything and will give your style a sense of elevation without being too dressy.

You Want To Look Casual – But Not Too Casual

Chinos are classy and can certainly be worn to a business meeting or parent-teacher conference, but they’re still casual enough to wear to a backyard barbecue or the grocery store. They are the perfect choice for an occasion where you don’t want to be too dressed up, but don’t want to look like a slob either.

You Need To Wear Sneakers

Long day at an amusement park ahead? Working a job where you’re going to be on your feet? Chinos (unlike many other pants or shorts) go great with sneakers and other comfortable walking shoes, so you can look nice without having to bother with sore feet at the end of the day. You can have both function and fashion with chinos, you don’t have to choose.

You’re Planning On Eating A Large Meal

Unlike most jeans and other pants/shorts, chinos are made of slightly stretchier fabric and allow some room for those times when you overindulge. You won’t ever have to worry about a button snapping off in a pair of chinos.

You’ve Lost Or Gained Weight

Chinos come in all different sizes, so if you lose or gain a bunch of weight you’ll definitely be able to find a new pair in your size. They are also affordable, so your wallet won’t be too upset if you’re looking to stay fashionable on a budget. Just remember to donate your old pair to someone in need— everyone deserves a pair of comfortable pants!

If you own a pair of chinos already, get to your closet now and thank them! If not, probably time you invest in a couple of pairs. You can thank us later, when you’re looking your best and still as comfortable as can be.
