If you want a versatile summer staple that looks polished but still feels like a vacation day, look no further than linen mens beach pants. Breathable and lightweight, these pants will help you beat the heat—whether you’re heading to the beach or simply settling in for a long afternoon at home. Plus, they’re easy to dress up or down depending on your mood.
How do I choose pants?
The key to picking out a pair of linen pants is to find ones that have a good fit and won’t stretch too much, fashion stylist McKenzie Crouch says. She recommends opting for a slimmer fit rather than a relaxed silhouette so that the fabric holds up to wear and tear (plus, it’ll be less likely to become wrinkly over time).
If your style leans more toward Latin leisure, try these men’s drawstring linen pants from Cubavera, which have a straight leg, a high-rise waist, and chic draped pockets. They’re also super comfy, so they’ll be a staple you reach for while soaking up the sun at the beach or clam shack.
A slightly cropped silhouette is perfect for a laidback dinner after a long day on the beach, or even a day spent running errands or getting work done at the office. Reformation’s bestselling pair of linen pants has the right mix of comfort and quality, with a wide-leg silhouette that pairs well with flats or heels and an adjustable drawstring waist.
If you prefer a more polished look, check out Theory’s linen dress pants. They have a slim straight leg that hits just below the ankle, and they can easily be worn into fall with a simple sweater.
