Are chinos okay or have they had their day?

I wore chinos all last summer as I was pregnant and they were very forgiving. I don't get out much these days so I rely on ito gauge what's hot and what's not. They have three lousy pairs on this year. I take this to mean they are no longer acceptable. Am I right?

I love my chinos! Never bought a pair until last year and make sure I buy interesting colours rather than boring stone or navy. I buy all my chinos from H&M and I've got royal blue, bright red and purple. I wore the purple ones today with purple Converse, a grey top, denim jacket from Boden and a bright coloured scarf from Gap.

I will be dragging mine out again this summer! What with all the different styles and colours of jeans, cropped, 7/8ths, jeggings etc about at the moment, I don't see what Chino's would be a no-no. I love them with flat strappy sandals and a vest top.

Thank you! Will check out the H&M ones next time they let me out smile.

I was wandering this too. I also wore chinos loads last year, but have pulled em out this year and nt so sure. However I will be wearing them as I like having something to wear with denim jackets, and these fit the bill.
Funny tho as I have just bought 2 pairs of jeans from topshop, one ripped pair which both feel more current to me.

What's the current alternative to chinos?
