While we men are slowly coming to terms with brighter colours on our top half, it's still a challenge to convince too many that our trouser collection could do with some sprucing. But brighter trousers are nothing to be afraid of, as we'll showcase quickly here.Pair some blue Ralph Lauren chinos with a calm coloured polo shirt like this grey Ralph Lauren (£70, My Wardrobe) and some trainers, preferably the Esquire favourite, Jack Purcell's for a measured look that'll keep things stylish but not overdone. Easy.
A second look is a little sharper, perfect for an evening out in a hot climate. We'd wear the chinos with a Norse Projects green oxford shirt (£95, End Clothing), a navy blazer from Margaret Howell (£285, Oi Polloi) and a pair of Sanders suede bucks (£154, Sanders). Simple.
