11 Pairs of Linen Pants That Feel Breezy but Don’t Look Frumpy
Lightweight and highly breathable, linen pants are a godsend when humid, miserable weather hits. But with that supreme comfort comes the wrinkles and the often shapeless styles that aren’t doing you any favors. So how to feel like a million bucks, without looking like you’re in a burlap sack? Stick to these tailored silhouettes, cropped culottes and vertical stripes that won’t swallow you whole.
If it’s a more tailored fit you’re after, ensure that the hem is cuffed.
James Perse ($195)
To give you the illusion of legs for days. (The block heels also help.)
Vince Camuto ($89)
They look just as good coming as they do going, thanks to the decorative lace-up back.
A ‘70s-style print will distract anyone from noticing that you’re essentially wearing pajamas.
All the makings of a work pant, without the feeling of suffocating in wool.
York Street ($163)
Slide on the right stacked heels and you could pull these off ’round the clock.
Darker hues like olive and slate help to mask the inevitable wrinkles.
Ulla Johnson ($138)
Black and White Pinstriped
Slightly Beetlejuice-y, but in a good way.
Psst, these get softer with each and every wash.
The classic cut combined with actual zippers make these a year-round favorite.
