Shorts are a summertime staple, but sometimes you just want a stylish pair of lightweight pants to take you around town — even on the hottest, most humid days. Luckily, linen pants are both lightweight and breathable, making them a must-have summer staple for anyone's vacation packing list, visit to their office, or dinner out on the town. We've rounded up the best linen pants for women to keep you cool and chic all summer long. 

With the rise of the Coastal Grandma aesthetic, wide-leg linen pants are even more of a summer trend that is here to stay. Whether you are on the hunt for some flowy, breezy pants or something a bit more structured for the office, linen pants come in various styles and designs. From cropped lengths to 100% linen pants that cinch toward your ankles, there are fits that can be dressed up or down to fit your summer schedule.

Not all linen pants are neutral in color and summer styles are in full swing at brands like Free People, Old Navy, Eileen Fisher and more. Below, shop the best linen pants to add to your wardrobe this season.
