My Style Is Simple—This Is the Easy Staple I Plan on Living in This Summer

My style skews simple at any point throughout the year. But now that summer is here, I'm all about unfussy outfits that are effortless to put together and give off a relaxed vibe, which is why I'm clinging to one easy wardrobe staple more than ever right now: linen pants. Linen clothing is a must if you live anywhere hot and humid since its breezy and lightweight feel keeps things ultra-comfortable. But even practicality aside, nothing embodies the laid-back feel of summer dressing quite as linen pieces do.

That said, I'm reaching for my linen trousers more than any other pair of jeans or pants right now and I figured you might be, too, so I went ahead and sourced 15 cool linen pant outfits that I'll personally be bookmarking. I think you'll find the warm-weather staple to be surprisingly versatile after scrolling through this roundup—style a pair with a blazer for the office or wear them over your bikini as beach pants. Ahead, get inspired by how fashion people are wearing their linen trousers now.

Non-tailored linen pants make the perfect beach cover-up. Keep it simple with a classic bikini and some fun-loving beaded jewelry.

Linen Pants + White Tank + Gold Jewelry

And now for the outfit that I'm personally living in all summer: the all-white ensemble. A white tank and linen trousers get a dressed-up feel with the addition of gold jewelry. Bonus points if you slick your hair back into a "clean girl" hairstyle.

You can never go wrong with suiting, and linen trousers work best with unstructured outerwear like a lightweight trench. To elevate them, layer on a silk tank.

Linen Trousers + Bra Top + Woven Bag

Raffia bags and linen pants are a match made in summer outfit heaven. Let the pants shine when you wear them with a simple bra top.

Knits in the summer might be controversial, but there's nothing divisive about a cute little woven tank like this Kendall Jenner–approved one that pairs well with tailored pants.

Since linen pants can feel mature really quickly, I like wearing them with trendier chunky sandals to give them a youthful spin.
