For summer? Lightweight cotton or linen of course. I'm particularly fond of gingham shirts with chinos nowadays.

can chinos take formal looking work shirts? or must the material be a little casual (like wrinkled oxford)?

Chinos can be worn with both. They can be dressed up or down.

With L.A.'s year round moderate temperatures and my business casual work environment, I wear chinos quite often.

As a result, I wear them with both dress shirts and sport shirts...it all depends on what kind of shoe I'm wearing and the overall look I'm going for.

Right now I'm wearing a khaki chino pant, AE Troy bluchers in chestnut, and green candy stripe OCBD.
