The sky is the limit when it comes to your linen pants and their styling. Start here with our favorites to shop now, while the sun still beats at your back.
Linen in one of the best fabrics for summer. It’s a light weave, moisture-wicking, and absorbent without showing it. In short, it’ll not only prevent you from overheating for longer periods of time, but when you do break that first sweat, you won’t get those pesky stains or wet spots in problem areas. Magic.
While the hottest days of summer might seem only fit for micro minis, short shorts, or—well—simply a swimsuit, linen pants are your solution for those occasions that call for a more covered-up silhouette.
Though your images of linen pants might be baggy wrinkled messes with elastic waists, there are so many chicer, more tailored options at your disposal. Sure, you can go the more casual utility route, but you can also opt for high waisted, slit-pocket, trousers with elegant pleats and ‘70s-style structured wide legs.
