Style Swap: Brighten Up By Trading Denim For Bold Chinos

It's kinda tough to find something wrong with denim capris. Fact is, they're pretty much perfect. But ice cream cones are pretty much perfect, too, and you don't want to go the whole summer without throwing a little sorbet into your routine, just to mix things up. So this summer, when you're out buying your yearly four or five pairs of cropped jeans, why not throw a pair of bright, sorbet-colored chinos into the mix for good measure? Get 'em long—like the fresh, minty green Sunkissed khakis from the Gap ($40) pictured above—or go short and sweet. This season is all about big, bold colors, and these bright slacks work just as well with the stripes, florals, and jewel hues as your favorite jeans. Plus, chinos are light, breathable, and give off a slightly more dressed up vibe than denims. Check out three of our favorite pairs:

Ever the proponents of pop, Old Navy brings on roll-up capris ($20) in firey red-orange. You'll be hard to miss in these breezy, feather-light cotton slacks that also come in electrifying ocean blue.

image
Go girly in juicy pink Weekend pants from Banana Republic ($42). With a crisp white patent leather belt, a pressed button down, and sleek sandals, these pants are the strawberry-colored icing on the perfect summery suit.

What makes a better summer treat than lemonade? Evoke childhood memories of setting up shop at the end of your driveway with J. Crew's Favorite-fit cropped chinos ($49.50) in zesty lemon yellow. With a plain white tee, these make for a relaxed weekend look. Add layered tanks in cobalt, lime and fuchsia for a bolder statement.
