Trend alert: Chinos. You may remember Chinos from your Mod days or perhaps the 90s when they were all the rage, well now the casual beige trouser is back! It's a trend that both women and men can wear. For women wear with this season's body and a denim jacket or a peasant blouse for a more bohemian look. For men think of a grown-up preppy look and wear with a short sleeved polo shirt and a denim jacket or blazer. If you want to stay ahead of the fashion pack this summer make sure that you go for flat fronted Chinos rather than pleated. Women's belted cropped Chinos �28, Next; Men's Fairtrade Flat Twill Front Nanotech Chinos, �30, Maine at Debenhams.
