Chino Challenge: 5 Ways To Wear The Classic

February 2, 2017

We love—love, love, love—a great pair of chinos. So much so that we’ve been hard at work on Chino by Anthropologie, an exclusive collection in honor of the time-tested classic. We couldn’t wait to share, so we sent some of our favorite bloggers and tastemakers the Relaxed Pant, a perfectly slouchy staple with a touch of stretch and a ton of versatility. Read on for their pro styling tips, from weekend-cool to going-out glam.

“I love this pant for pairing with other classic pieces—a striped shirt updated with a bell sleeve and a kimono-like jacket. I added a funky statement earring, and once I went that far, what other option was there than a printed bootie?”


Karissa Marie, @karissamariie
“Every girl needs a pair of chinos in her wardrobe! I kept things neutral, then added a pop of red lipstick for a little glamour.”


Lisa Marie Prang, @lisamarieprang
“With a casual blouse and a cute pair of heels, this look is ready for anything and everything.”

“I love the way these pair with a feminine, ruffled lace top and lace-up sandals. It’s the perfect mix of casual and dressy.”


Blair Staky, @thefoxandshe
“I cuffed the hems for a more relaxed vibe. Pair them with sneakers for a casual daytime look, then swap in heels for dinner—so versatile!”
