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, a date, or the beach, 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).
To prove this theory, we took the same simple pair of linen pants (similar style available here) and put together five totally different outfits, all of which are equally amazing, of course. Scroll through to see the looks, and then continue on to shop linen pants!
To take your linen pants into office territory, pair them with sleek accessories, a polished blouse, and an optional light sweater.
For date night, go for fun accessories such as bow heels and a bright bag, a printed top, and a long duster as an interesting third piece.
Hitting the beach this weekend? Instead of your typical cover-up, opt for linen pants and a breezy button-down paired with a woven bag and sandals.
For a brunch look that's cool and comfortable, opt for an off-the-shoulder top and flat slides, accessorized with a choker and belt bag.
For your coolest airport outfit yet, start with your linen pants and then layer a denim jacket over a hoodie, add sneakers and a backpack, and you're off.
