How To Wear Linen Pants

Linen pants are a great shorts alternative to wear in the summer when you don't want to wear shorts for personal or occasion reasons.  They are so lightweight and breathable, you barely even feel you have anything on, so they keep you as cool and comfy as a pair of shorts would.  

I found this cute pair of linen pants at my favorite clothing store:  TJMaxx.  I wore this outfit for the occasion:  Sunday in church.  

The pants have a double black stripe and a wide waist band with a tie.  I really wanted to show off the waistband, but I don't have much of a waistline, so I did a half-tuck.

I paired my linen pants with two other TJMaxx finds:  a black Michael Koss short sleeve top and white quilt-top sandals.

The top has pretty chiffon butterfly sleeves.

Here you can see what the outfit looks like from the back, with the top un-tucked.

For jewelry, I chose a simple bohemian style elephant necklace and a black and white bracelet.  This is one of my favorite bracelets and somehow I misplaced it and haven't seen it since this photo shoot.  😡😢 I have no idea what could have happened to it.

Because I wore this outfit to church, I picked a dressier top, but these pants would make a great casual look with a tee too!  I think sandals work best with these pants because they are so short on me but a cute pair of sneakers would also be fun.

Wondering how else to wear linen pants?  Here are some more ideas:

  • denim jacket
  • blazer
  • button down top
  • classic tank
  • chunky or heeled sandals
And when the weather cools down, wear your pants with a chunky, oversized sweater or cardigan.

Have A Great Day!  Amy

  1. I never wear shorts. Very interesting post. I love wearing linen in the hot summer months!

    1. Thanks. I usually only wear shorts at home myself.

  2. I've been looking for linen pants starting at the beginning of summer but all those that I found were too long and too wide for my petite frame :( Then I thought I found a perfect pair in Germany but they were such a low rise which doesn't work for me either :( So the hunt continues!
    Love this pair on you and you've styled them so nicely!

    1. How funny, I have the opposite problem, linen pants are usually too short. I now own like 3 short linen pants. Thanks so much.

  3. Love it. You look great. I love my linen pants.

  4. Those linen pants are so cute on you! Love this breezy look!
