Linen Pants for Summer: Your style guide

Linen pants are trending this summer. Learn 10 chic and easy ways you can style yours.

Summer linen pants for women

Linen is an excellent choice for summer wear due to its cooling properties and breathability. The fabric is light, loosely woven, and allows heat to escape the body, making it ideal for hot and humid weather. 

Apparently, linen acts as a barrier against UV rays. Isn’t that great? In addition, the fabric’s ability to absorb moisture and dry quickly prevents clothes from sticking to the body, providing a comfortable experience during the scorching heat of summer.

How to wear linen pants

There are many different styles of linen pants, and how you wear them would depend on the style you have vs. where you are heading. Below you’ll find some great tips of the various styles and looks you can recreate with them. From laid back looks, to looks that take you from work to Night out.

Linen Pants Outfits

Linen pants and top set

For a monochromatic look try this crop linen top with high waisted linen pants. It’s a breezy, comfortable combo that’s perfect for showing a touch of skin while still maintaining a polished look.

The high-waisted pants create a lengthening effect on your legs, making you look taller. It’s a flattering silhouette that works on pretty much everyone.

This outfit can be dressed up or down depending on your accessories. Add a statement necklace and heels for a night out, or keep it casual with sandals and a straw bag for a daytime look.

Black tank top + beige linen pants

This is a super easy and chic outfit that’s perfect for any casual occasion. The black tank top is a classic staple that goes with pretty much anything, and the beige linen pants add a touch of sophistication. It’s simple, chic, and goes with basically any shoe you throw at it. It’s a great outfit for grabbing coffee with a friend, running errands, or a casual lunch date.

Going out top + high waist pants

To step things up a notch, grab a statement “going out” top and pair it with some high-waisted linen pants. This look is comfy enough to dance the night away in, but still has that “I mean business” vibe. Perfect for drinks with the girls, a concert, or that rooftop bar you’ve been eyeing.

with a Denim shirt + tee +slides

For a more laid-back vibe, try a denim shirt over a tee with black linen pants. It’s a great way to add some texture and visual interest to your outfit. This look works for grabbing lunch with friends, a casual date, or exploring a new part of town.

with a relaxed Button down shirt

This is your perfect outfit for a day spent exploring a new city, strolling through a farmer’s market, or grabbing brunch with friends. It’s comfy enough to walk around in all day, but still put-together enough to look like you made an effort (even if the effort was minimal).

White shirt + Cream High waist linen Pants

Linen doesn’t have to be just for casual wear! Throw on a high waist linen pant with a button-down shirt for a work outfit that’s both professional and breathable. Bonus points for adding a pop of color with a statement necklace or scarf.

with a Dressy top

Pair a dressier top with beige linen pants for a look that’s both comfortable and elegant. This is great for weddings, summer work events, or that fancy dinner reservation you’ve been saving up for.

with Blazer + racer vest

I love how simple yet classy this blazer +linen pants look is. It totally pulls off a cool, put-together vibe. This is perfect for an art gallery opening, or a night out where you want to look very chic and sophisticated.

Sleeveless vest + tank top + Beige linen pants

For the ultimate in summer vibes, rock a sleeveless vest over a tank top with beige linen pants. It’s breezy, comfortable, and perfect for those scorching hot days. Think outdoor festivals, beach bonfires, or anything else where you want to look cool and stay cool.


Fit it is Key:

Linen pants often have a relaxed fit. To avoid a baggy look, pair them with a more fitted top. This creates a flattering silhouette.

Remember as with any other outfit to always Highlight your best assets. High-waisted linen pants elongate your legs, while cropped styles showcase your ankles. Choose the cut that flatters your body type.

Top it Off:

Play with proportions. A cropped top balances out high-waisted pants, while a tucked-in shirt adds definition to a looser fit.


  • Sandals and flats are your best friends for a casual summer look.
  • Wedges or heels can elevate the outfit for a night out or work event.
  • Sneakers add a sporty touch for a relaxed weekend vibe.

Accessorize with Intention:

  • Belts can define your waist and add a touch of personality. Go for a woven leather belt for a more natural look or a statement belt to dress things up.
  • Jewellery: Keep it simple with delicate necklaces and bracelets for a daytime look, or go bold with statement earrings or a chunky necklace for an evening out.

Beyond Basics:

  • Don’t be afraid of color! Linen pants come in a variety of colors beyond beige and white. Experiment with pastels, earthy tones, or even bold hues to add personality to your outfit.
  • Layering is your friend. Throw on a lightweight blazer or kimono for a chic and polished look that’s perfect for cooler evenings.

Linen Care:

  • Embrace the wrinkles! Linen’s natural wrinkles are part of its charm. However, if you prefer a crisper look, a quick steamer can do wonders.
  • Spot clean when possible. Linen is a delicate fabric, so avoid harsh washing and drying methods.


Linen pants are a summer staple, offering both breathability and breezy style. These outfit ideas and styling tips should help you style them to achieve that perfect balance between comfort and chic.
