Emma Spedding

This spring sees the return of a number of controversial fashion items. As if the comeback of kitten heels isn't enough for many of us to get our heads around, the key trouser that has been tipped to take over from jeans is a "dad" favourite. You guessed it: It's khaki chinos. Khaki trousers might have frumpy connotations, but they have been given a makeover for S/S 17, and according to the likes of Vogue and Moda Operandi, they are about to replace your skinny jeans as your everyday staple. A bold claim, yes, but given they were featured in many of the major S/S 17 runway shows—and influentials models like Binx Walton and Karlie Kloss have been wearing them as their off-duty uniforms already—it doesn't seem so farfetched.
