There are plenty of lightweight summer pants out there—but when the temps are hitting record highs and you really need something airy and breathable, it’s hard to choose anything other than linen. After all, it’s the official fabric of summer (at least in our hearts) for a reason! Linen is known to help keep us from overheating while also looking super chic. And who doesn’t love a functional trouser or jogger that’s still stylish? (Um, no one!) Dressed up or dressed down, linen pants are a must-have for the hottest months of the season—and even year-round if you live in a warmer climate.
Keep things casual for a coffee date with your BFF and choose a pair of comfy joggers and a tee. Or get fancy for date night with some flowy wide-leg trousers and a bodysuit. No matter how you want to wear these beauts, you’re gonna stay cool (and look hot) all season long.

Glowing Review: These linen pants are fantastic! They are incredibly comfortable and have the perfect wide leg look. As a bonus, they are fully lined!
These Classic Black Trousers
Ultra high-waisted and seriously chic, you’ll find so many ways to style these black pants this season. Try tossing on a crop top and heels for a night out or an oversized button-down and sneakers for a chill afternoon. Either way, you’ll look super cool.
Glowing Review: The most perfect high-waisted pant!

These Bold Bbs
Our Stamps Pants
- Less versatile for everday
Get ready for allll the compliments with this pair of linen beauties. Bold, bright, and oh-so-cute, these deserve a spot in anyone’s warm-weather wardrobe. And as if the print isn’t fun enough, the pants also feature a beaded tassel in the front. It’s the little details, am I right?
These Work-Ready Pants
Linen Blend Trousers
- Can run long on shorter folks
If you’re looking for a pair of trousers that’ll look just as good in the office as they do at happy hour, you’re going to want to snag these orange pants ASAP. With a slightly-pleated front and added elastic in the back, you can’t lose. Bonus: They come in three gorge colors.
These Casual Linen Pants
Lodge Linen Pant
- Made with a heavier linen
These pants are the laidback trousers of my dreams. Ideal for wearing with an oversized top or swimsuit while on vacay, you’ll probably find yourself reaching for them over your jeans all season. They also come in white if yellow isn’t really your vibe (or you just want another pair).
These Tapered Pull-Ons
Plus Linen-Blend Pull-On Tapered Pants
How dreamy is this lavender? Pair these tapered pull-on trousers with a comfy tee and sandals for an easy summer look that’ll keep you from melting in the heat. They’re available in standard sizes XXS to XXL and plus sizes 1X to 4X, too!
Glowing Review: These linen blend track trousers are fantastic.So light and super comfortable. I would have never picked a pant like this but I’m so glad I tried them.
These Creamy Joggers
Leave it to H&M to create a classic linen jogger in five (!) different colors. I’m partial to this creamy hue, but you can also score black, khaki, green, and blue to round out your warm-weather pants collection.
Glowing Review: These pants are seriously amazing. They’re so comfortable, and feel and look great. I just ordered them in 2 more colors and put myself on the waitlist for colors that didn’t have my size in stock.
These Cropped Pants
100% Linen Pants
Another bright moment for you, because spring and summer call for colorful looks! These pants are made with 100 percent linen and come in sizes XXS to 4X—so you and all your pals can match this season. Note that these bbs are cropped, so if you’re on the taller side, they might run a lil short on you.
These Effortless Trousers
Crop Trousers in Oat
If you’re wanting a simple pair of linen blend trousers that’ll look chic at work (and even on a night out paired with a crop top), allow me to introduce you to these cream pants. They’re effortlessly cool and will never go out of style. It’s a win-win.
This Olive Pair
Linen Joggers in Green Beetle
- Some say they’re see-through
These comfy linen joggers are bound to become your go-to on days when you need to put together an outfit in five minutes. Whether you wear ’em with sneakers and a tee or a button-up and heels, you’re gonna look fab.
Glowing Review: These are fairly loose but that’s how I like them. They aren’t sloppy looking and I plan on wearing them for a long flight trip across the country. The side pockets are an added plus star.
These Wide-Leg Crops
Crop Wide Pant
As someone who has tried (and loved) Vince’s extended size pants, I highly recommend. I haven’t tested out these cropped trousers, but the brand has such high quality pieces and they fit plus-size bodies well. This is a luxe option, but definitely worth it.
This Belted Pair
Belted High Waist Linen Trousers
Hi, these trousers come with a removable belt, and it’s pretty dang genius. This is another pair that works so well for an office ‘fit, and the color will play well with just about any top (plain or printed) in your wardrobe this season.
Some ~fun~ footwear options to wear with linen pants.
Keep it cool at the beach.
Linen pants are such a great option for wearing at the beach or on vacation. They’re versatile, easy to style, and comfy enough to wear while walking around all day. If you’re just planning to hit the shores, though, you’ll want to opt for shoes that are easy to take on and off—so you can stick those toes in the sand, of course!
Try a cute slide sandal with your pants for a simple look that works well on the beach and grabbing drinks after a day in the sun. If you want to go a step further, choose a pair that’s waterproof—giving you the option to rinse ’em off if they get really sandy (or in case a wave hits them).
Spice it up for going-out looks.
For those headed out for a night on the town, you can’t go wrong with a wide-leg linen trouser and fun heels. You can go for a platform—one of the 2022 shoe trends, FYI!—or a strappy sandal that gives you feet some room to breath while on the dance floor.
Make ’em dressy for work.
If you want to make your linen pants a bit dressier for the office, that’s totally doable with the help of cute shoes. Slip on some espadrilles or breathable ballet flats that are work-appropriate. If it’s not too warm out, you can also opt for some chunky loafers for a trendy vibe. Toss on a lightweight blazer, and you’re set.
