While I find packing for summer trips to be infinitely easier than winter ones (no bulky sweaters or outerwear!), it's not without its challenges. Maybe it's just me, but I'm not a big fan of packing shorts when I travel, as they can leave me feeling a little overexposed, but jeans can leave me feeling a bit suffocated. For that reason, I tend to fill my suitcase with dresses, skirts, and lightweight pants this time of year, and for maximum airflow, I choose wide-leg ones in the summer.
Luckily for me, the latest Who What Wear collection pieces just dropped at Target, and among them is a pair of army-green wide-leg pants with on-trend utility details. The pants are light and breathable (I wore them in 97-degree heat recently) and have a high-waist fit that looks great with my summer tops. Not only that, but you can also wear them with the matching belt or swap it out for one of your own to change up the look. Moral of the story: These holy-grail pants are perfect for summer travel and worth all 4000 pennies.
