Bottoms Up: Spring Chino Refresh

February 19, 2016

Ever since a kindly groundhog predicted spring was on the way, we’ve been counting down the days to sunny skies. Although we technically still have a few weeks to go—is it just us, or is February a lot longer than advertised?—we couldn’t resist getting a head start and catching up with some of our long-lost besties: chinos. Perfect for everything from a day at the office to a night with the girls, these spring staples are at the top of our Warm Weather Wish List (right under gelato, obviously). As we prepare to welcome our favorite Pilcro pairs back into the outfitting rotation, we tapped two of our favorite style bloggers, Claire Zinnecker and Caroline Harper, for a little inspiration. Take it away, ladies!

Claire Zinnecker

“If I had my way I would dress in PJs all day, every day. Chinos are the perfect solution—I can look great but still feel relaxed and like myself.”

“For a night on the town, just add a fun pair of heels and you’re ready to go!”

“Cute but casual, I love the Hypen’s slouchy tomboy look.”

“I love pairing my Hyphens with a lacy top—it’s effortless, but elevated.”

“I’m all about mixing casual and dressy elements. If I’m wearing a chino skirt, I like to pair it with flat boots and a striped tee to keep it relaxed.”

“Traditional khaki chinos are great, but I’m in love with navy and army green this year!”
