    21 Of The Best Linen Pants To Keep Your Legs Blissfully Cool

    The compromise between shorts and long pants you never knew you needed.

    All sizes are in women's sizing unless otherwise noted.

    1. A drawstring linen-blend pant that screams, "Wear me to the farmer's market!" Add a reusable bag with a baguette sticking out the top, maybe some microgreens, and you've got yourself a dream New England mom fit.

    Promising review: "These are my new favorite warm-weather slacks. They look great if I’m dressing up and they look great if I’m being casual. I will be able to wear these out quite a ways into fall, as well. I’m really happy with the purchase of the material; it's so soft you just can’t even believe it, but it’s sturdy." –Rory McNeil

    Get it from Amazon for $27.98+ (available in sizes S–5XL and in 20 colors).

    2. A pair of colorful linen culottes as flowy and fun as you are, because it's as they always say: the bigger the pants, the bigger the personality.

    Promising review: "Tried these pants through Prime Wardrobe and I’m obsessed. I’m short and curvy and these have an excellent fit. They are super comfortable. I love them because I’m a teacher and I would feel super professional wearing these, but could also dress them down to wear casually. I ordered another pair in green!" —Alaina Oreglia

    Get it from Amazon for $38.30 (available in sizes 4–14 and six colors).

    4. A pair of 100% linen pants so affordable you almost won't believe your eyes until you slip them on and experience that luxurious, breathable comfort for yourself.

    5. A pair of linen-blend pants because all your normal black work pants are starting to bore you and you're tired of the heaviness — if you have to work (in this economy???) you may as well be comfortable.

    Promising review: "Just got these for a formal meeting and let me tell you I am actually looking forward to it now lol! I am on the shorter side though (5’2”) so they are a bit long, but I popped on some heels and they fit just fine. I usually wear a size 14 in American Eagle jeans but I bought these in 16 and they fit well, though I could’ve went down a size! These pants could be worn in so many ways depending on what you wear with it so you’ll get lots of wear out of them. Trust me, you will not regret buying these!" —gina3921

    Get it from Torrid for $45.17 (originally $69.50; available in sizes 10–30).

    6. A pair of relaxed linen pants made for summertime, complete with an elastic waist, tie detail, and easy breezy material that won't make you feel like a sweaty mess.

    Get it from Magic Linen for $82 (available in sizes XS–XL and two colors). 

    7. A super baggy linen trouser for anyone who wishes it was socially acceptable to wear your pajamas out in public — these are a compromise worth your time and money.

    Promising review: "I looooove these pants! In my pics I'm wearing them high on my waist but you can wear as high or low as you want. I loooove the flowy room in the legs. The fabric is high quality but possibly too thick for high temps with humidity. Perfect for any temp up to maybe 90 in dryer places. I imagine that depends on the person though, all I know is that these are the most comfortable pants I've ever owned and am not afraid to wear them in high or low temps haha." —Amy P

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 29 colors).

    8. linen pant putting a spring in your step wherever you go because of the flirty lil crop and the lightweight feel that's ideal for... basically every season.

    Reviewers say that these pants run slightly large.

    Promising review: "10/10 recommend these to everyone. The linen material is extremely comfortable and breathable for spring and summer. I bought these in two colors!! I’d say size down one size from your normal because they do stretch a little throughout the day. Absolutely love!!" —Gracie xoxo

    Get it from Anthropologie for $130 (available in sizes 00–26, including Tall and Petite sizes, and four colors).

    9. A casual linen-blend trouser for the carefree vibes you crave when it's too hot outside to even think about pulling on a pair of jeans *shudders*.

    Promising review: "I go to Cabo a couple of times a year and wanted loose, comfy pants to wear to the pool on cool mornings. These are GORGEOUS! I didn’t expect to love them so much!! They’re linen pants but aren’t all wrinkly. Flowy, but not too flowy, waist that is very stretchy. I am 5’4” and around 147lbs and got a large and it fits like a glove and looks and feels amazing!! I went and ordered more colors haha. Def a winner!!" —Ashley Q

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 11 colors).

    10. A pair of tapered 100% linen trousers in a jogger style you'll find yourself pulling on every time you know you're going to leave the house and can't be bothered coordinating an outfit.

    Promising review: "I hardly ever write reviews and if I do they are generally really good out really bad… this one, reeeeally good! I loooove these pants! My husband (very surprisingly), looooves these pants. They look so good on, don't wrinkle like other linen pants, and have a great weight and drape about them. The only bad thing I could possibly say about them is that they don't come in more colors." —Ashley K

    Get it from Athleta for $89 (available in sizes 0–26, as well as Tall and Petite sizing, and three colors).

    12. An adorable patchwork linen trouser because if you're like me and wish you could wear pants all year long without even reaching for a pair of shorts, you're in luck.

    Promising review: "These are really very nice pants! I am 5‘10", 155 lbs., large waist, and the XL proved a good fit for me. The length is like a long crop, hits just a smidge above my ankles. The waist is elastic, and fairly stretchy, so it is comfortable, even though it’s rather tight. The rest of the pant is cut just about exactly as I expected, just like it looks in the photo — quite baggy, but not sloppy-baggy, so it feels roomy, doesn’t cut in when you sit down. The roominess helps make the pants feel lightweight and cool, tho the fabric is actually a bit smoother and more medium-weight than you might think. They don’t look or feel much like linen (or what I think linen should feel like!) — it’s not quite as soft as I sort of hoped, but it’s not a deal breaker. I love the pockets, and the way the ankle is shaped and tapered helps make it look better than just a big pair o’pants!" —Aud

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97+ (available in sizes M–XXL and five colors).

    13. A linen pant made from a rayon blend, bound to feel like you're wearing PJs while looking like you're wearing professional slacks.

    Promising review: "The print on these pants is so classic and timeless and this purchase was a great addition to my wardrobe. They fit well and look great, but I wish they were a bit roomier in the leg — but that is just my own personal preference. If you are going for the coastal vibe, these pants would definitely be a great catch!" —anonymous

    Get it from Gap Factory for $29.99 (originally $59.99; available in sizes XS–XXL, as well as Tall and Petite sizes).

    14. A pair of cuffed linen pants that are a total chameleon; classy vibes when you need them, and luxury lounging all other times.

    Promising review: "Another winner. Love these silky pants. Very comfortable. They are exactly as described. They are definitely a summer weight pant, not too light, not too heavy. Perfect for the heat. Thanks Mordenmiss, you rock." —Mad Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99+ (available in sizes M–XXL and five colors).

    15. A pair of wide-leg linen pants destined to be your "happy pants" — pants you can be yourself in, comfy through all weather, ready for a dance party or, heck, an impromptu nap.

    Charm Wood Signs

    Charm Wood Signs is an Etsy small biz based in China that makes linen minimalist clothing in custom sizes.

    Promising review: "Item arrived well within the given timeframe, safely and well packaged. The pants are perfectly tailored to me, as I gave the relevant measurements to the creator. I've immediately fallen in love with the pants, they're super comfy and airy, perfect for summer, spring, and early autumn as standalone bottoms, and even colder days with insulation underneath. P.S.: I had originally forgotten to include my phone number when placing the order but immediately emailed the seller my number and while I didn't get a reply back (to be honest the email itself didn't need one to begin with), they did indeed read the email and updated my order, as I did receive tracking details so overall I am beyond satisfied and happy with my purchase and the help I was provided 🙌✨ " —
