What do you wear when it’s 90+ degrees out and you need to look professional, casual, chic, or all of 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’s ultra-breathable while still looking polished (just make sure you give the fabric a good ironing).
To prove this theory, we took the same, simple pair of James Perse Linen Tapered Pants ($195) and put together five totally different outfits, all of which are equally amazing, of course. Scroll through to see and shop the looks, and then continue on to shop more linen pants!
