What To Wear With Linen Pants

1. Bright Button Down Shirt


Don’t be afraid of bright colors when styling your linen pants, especially if you have white or ivory linen pants that will match well with any vibrant shade. We love the combination of these loose, wide-leg linen pants with a bright pink linen shirt to add a fun pop of colors.

The shirt really is the statement piece of this outfit, so opt for light-colored accessories, including white sandals and an ivory or off-white handbag. Gold jewelry and large sunglasses add a little glamour to this perfect summer vacation look.

2. Striped Crop Top


One of the simplest and most chic ways to style a pair of linen pants is with a crop top or bralette – such as the black and white striped crop top in the outfit above.

The tailored light beige linen pants are given a more relaxed, casual vibe with the addition of a crop top and then finished with statement tortoiseshell sunglasses, white sneakers, and a beige-grey mini handbag to keep with the neutral color scheme. This outfit is the ideal holiday look that will always look effortlessly chic.

3. Matching Linen Vest


Coordinating sets and linen pants are two of the biggest summer trends which is why this outfit is just irresistible. The linen wide leg pants and vest are the perfect match in the same light beige tone, then finished with black accessories for a stylish look.

Adding a tailored vest really smartens up the soft linen trousers, while the flip flops give a more casual look – but you could style this outfit with strappy heels to create an evening outfit. Gold jewelry and black sunglasses are the perfect finishing touches.

If you have linen pants in a bold color, the best way to style them is with a neutral-colored shirt or blouse – as you can see in this outfit with the pistachio green linen pants and ivory-colored shirt.

The cropped shape of the shirt works really well with the high-waisted silhouette of the pants, while the delicate pattern on the shirt looks just beautiful. Warm tan and brown accessories, such as the leather slide sandals and basket tote bag, really complement the earthy tones of the outfit.

15. Linen Shirt and Bralette


The black bralette is the perfect element to break up this taupe linen look. Wide-leg linen pants and a linen shirt always look beautiful together, and we love the matching colors, but if you want to add another color to the mix and create a chic, relaxed look, then just add a comfy bralette and leave the shirt open.

This could also be a great beach look by just wearing your bikini top underneath the shirt. A wide-brimmed hat and shimmering white necklace add a little more personality and individuality to this stylish outfit.
