Pick Of The Week: Cutty Bright Chinos

If there is slight apprehension from a gent regarding the incorporation of bright colours into your wardrobe then allow spring to be your guide. This is a start when it comes to bringing diversity to your wardrobe, in a stylish and subtle way. There's no better place experimenting with bright and vibrant colours than these Cutty chinos available from Runway Sale. A little about these chinos; they are made from 100% cotton with a slim leg fit, side tabs, branded buttons and a branded leather trim above the back pocket. They are pretty standard, quality chinos that subscribe to the spring palette and weather conditions.

Using colour to make an outfit fresh works, especially in spring when one can take it a step further by wearing garments with bright colours. In winter bright can be worn with accessories like socks, shoes, bags, etc, but spring is a real opportunity to work in something more substantial socks or shoes. 

I'm one of those gents who is slowly working his through the bright colour scheme (I'm going to be wearing white pants for the first time in my life, I think) therefore if I was looking wear any of the chinos featured here I would definitely play it safe with the rest of my ensembles. They're bright and command a lot of attention in the first place, therefore anchor them down with blues. Think of a navy blue blazer; you can pair it with everyone of these pants. It is the safest but most stylish way to complete this look. Pairing them with a white shirt is also playing in the safe zone.

Bright chinos are not your average man's wardrobe staple.In fact, when it coves to summer trousers, most men play it safe. Navy blue then is the colour of choice for most men. These colours are light but not loud and are safe for any gent looking to start the alternative colours route. This is an opportunity to kick your style into a higher gear by confidently wearing bright chinos. I'm of the opinion that once you pull off bright chinos, colourful, bright jackets aren't too far behind. This isn't my pick of the week if the price isn't right, and for R249, I'm sure we can all agree that that's value for money.
