The first 80-degree day of the year is always a sharp reminder that it’s time to make summer plans (maybe you’re even a little late). You heard me: it’s time to step away from the group chat for this trip, book flights, and yes, find some linen pants.

Beach, brunch, business – whatever you can think of. Linen pants are a chic, classic pair of pants that will go with almost any outfit you wear between now and September. They’re the ultimate must-have piece for your summer closet, and why not? Linen pants literally and figuratively keep you cool. This versatile, luxurious fabric has been used for thousands of years for its breathable, moisture-wicking properties. Fast forward to the present, and it seems like everyone has figured it out.

These days, finding the perfect pair of linen pants seems harder than El Dorado, and it can feel like navigating a style jungle. Luckily, we’ve collected the best linen pants that also go beyond traditional wide-leg styles, from coastal stripes to sleek silhouettes. But if you do want a classic, don’t worry; you’ll find those too. Below, shop my favorite styles in anticipation of hot midday days, breezy sunsets, and everything in between this summer.
