The lure of bright-coloured chinos

Just about everyone’s making coloured chinos at the moment and the sheer choice can make pulling on some plain old beiges and navies feel pretty dull. So like a child on a sugar rush, we've decided to let our hair down and examine a few pairs of chinos that are just bright enough to keep us on a high.

1 Peach
Starting off as bold as we could reasonably bear, Tommy Hilfiger’s Mercer Pant comes in an absolute rainbow of colours. Slim-fitting and 100% cotton, you can be as reserved or extroverted as they like with such a wide range. These peach numbers probably shift into the extrovert camp. At £85, it’s not impossible to experiment a little.

2 Green
No, not olive chinos, they're already in the wardrobe. We’re talking can-I-really-pull-these-off-green chinos. We like Acne’s Guy chino, this time in a shade that will almost certainly give wearers minty fresh breath. £160 from Oki-ni

3 Sky blue
Most men complain of having too much blue in their wardrobe, but few complain about having too many pairs of sky blue trousers. One can never go wrong with Dockers, and Oi Polloi have a sky blue pair going for £80. These will open the doors to pairing up with a more subdued polo in white or grey.
