Ways to Wear: Discovering the Versatility of Linen Pants

I told you I went a bit “linen crazy” this summer! I am sharing these drawstring linen pants, how I styled them and other styling options.

The Versatility of Linen Pants

I’ve written about how linen is a staple of mine in the summer here in the South.  Time for another linen look! Get used to it, as there will be another one tomorrow!

It’s hot here in Charlotte, but not nearly as humid as it was in Charleston. 90 degrees feels like a cold front!

I bought these olive linen drawstring pants from J Crew Factory when they had a Memorial Day sale, and they will be very versatile throughout our hot summers.

Here I created  a monochromatic look with a cotton tank and linen pants.  The linen pants I am wearing have sold out, but here are some other options HERE and HERE. The accessories here are the “icing on the cake”. This gorgeous silk scarf caught my eye with its greens, blues and yellows, and I love to switch it up and wear a scarf as an alternative to necklaces.

Linen pants have become a garment I reach for and can style in both a casual or dressy way. Here, slightly more dressed up with the white strappy sandals, scarf and Kendra Scott earrings, you could easily transition this look to be more casual.

If wearing a monochromatic look, break up the one color with a print and texture. Here I have done so with my Kendra Scott earrings, scarf and woven bag.

Other Ways to Wear These Linen Pants

  • Wear these linen pants with a tank and linen blazer, add sneakers. (fashionable ones of course!)
  • Crochet is trending now. Wear a crochet top with linen pants and espadrilles.
  • Keep it casual with line pants, a graphic tee and cute sneakers
  • Wear a button down shirt, linen pants and sandals for a more structured look.
  • Add a linen tee, linen pants and some flat espadrilles for a casual vibe.
  • Light chambray would look wonderful with linen pants, add a stylish hat and slip on sandals.
  • The classic striped tee with these linen pants would look great with a pair of white leather sneakers or Converse

Here is a post styling linen pants in the past.

How would you style these linen  pants? Let me know in the comments, I love to hear from you. 

Have a great day and join me tomorrow for Turning Heads Tuesday!

    Hello Jess,

    I always enjoy your styling. I agree with you that these Olive pants would look nice with a light chambray shirt. Also, olive is my favorite fall color.

    I was just looking at linen pants at Athleta the other day! I usually wear mine with a fitted t-shirt or tank like you did. Xo Nipa

    I love this column of olive with the jaunty scarf adding shine and additional depth of green tones to the monochrome look. Linen is just the best for summer! We’re having a 95 F day today and I am wearing a linen shirt.

    Those pants are so cute on you! I am really liking this summery look! It’s nice to have some options besides shorts for the hot and humid weather.

    I think I will pull out my linen pants to wear tomorrow. I bought a sage pair at the end of spring and have worn them a few times already. Time to see how I can wear them this go around.

    I love how you dressed up those linen trousers, Jess! You look stunning. And the colour is gorgeous. I’m a big fan of linen trousers in the summer too!

    I am right here with you when it comes to loving linen this season! It has been so hot here in Florida and linen is an ideal fabric for keeping cool.

    You look amazing in today’s monochromatic outfit. Very chic.💚
