Spring Pick: The Chino Redoux

Posted in Style
by Johanna Andersson on 23 February, 2018

A smooth segue from the trenchcoat, there's the reconstructed chino—another favorite pick for spring. Trying to figure out why we have this sudden obsession, we're pointing fingers at the fashion houses.

We’ll admit to being semi-obsessed with beige clothing at the moment. And we also admit that though we’re always rooting for the season-less classics, we do glance at the runway trends (a lot) for inspiration—how else would we have known that our favorite spring garment, the trenchcoat, is a major thing this season? Fashion houses like Céline, Loewe, and Balenciaga all did trench/beige looks for spring. 
From the beige, and the trench, we find it’s just a smooth segue to the chino. Both classic and reconstructed versions are surfacing at the moment, and we’re especially found of the later. Though it’s a garment that’s always around, for better and worse, it’s suddenly having a moment, and we’re not entirely sure who to blame. Is it you? Possibly. Or you? Probably. Wait, you look guilty!
Anyway, chinos are vibeing, and we’ve found some favorites, like the wide-legged style Jaya is wearing in the pic above with a simple tank from Filippa K. The trousers are a second hand find and come from Swedish brand Hope, which it not a sustainable brand per se, but they nowadays do unisex sizing, which we think is an interesting and quite a modern move. 

You can also go for the chino-esque styles below!

Want vintage? How about these casual styles from Reed Krakoff, Acne Studios and Tibi?
