Here's Exactly What to Wear With Linen Pants

What do you wear when it’s 90-plus degrees out and you need to look professional, casual, chic, or all the above? The answer is simple: linen pants. That’s right—whether you’re going to work, on a date, to the beach, or simply staying home but dressing like you're headed out, linen pants will have you looking and feeling cool. That’s because linen is one of few fabrics that are ultra breathable while still looking polished (just make sure you give the piece a good ironing).
