Chino shorts are a wardrobe staple – this summer make chino shorts your go-to piece for building multiple looks around.

Here’s 7 different outfit ideas for how to style chino shorts, that’s one for every day of the week – so no excuse for wearing the same outfit two days in a row.

Floral prints

Go tropical in chino shorts and a tropical print shirt this summer – palm tree or floral prints and top notch tailoring speak style.

Pastel hues and neat palm tree silhouettes are an understated way to work the look. Or go for full-blown tropicana in vibrant colours, floral prints and Hawaiian shirts. 

Paul Smith and Zara are good places to look for original patterns and statement printed shirts.
