Celebrate the start of spring and bridge the temperature change with chic wide leg linen pants

Consider them a wardrobe staple.

The turn of the season marks the switching out of our thick and cosy winter wardrobes for something lighter, brighter and ready for summer. 

Considering spring has already proved itself to be a warm one, with warmer days ahead (gracias El Niño) with summer just around the corner, if there was any piece to add to your wardrobe it’s a pair of linen pants. 

Building essential staple pieces in your wardrobe is the key to ensuring you always have something to wear and a timeless weather-appropriate pair of pants is a must. 

Wide-leg linen pants can be worn for any occasion. Pair them with some loafers and a matching blazer for a laid-back office look, throw over swimmers as a cool coverup, go casual with a t-shirt and sneakers or dress up with some strappy heels for a beachside bar look. 

Linen is the perfect fabric for spring and summer as it allows airflow and is super lightweight. However, as the weather starts to cool it also acts as an insulant and can keep out brusque lingering winter winds. 

That’s why we’re ensuring we have a pair of wide-leg linen pants in our staple wardrobe this season, there are so many options on the market that we’ve compiled our favourites so hopefully, you can find yours. 

From belted styles to bold patterns, neutrals and statement colours, read on to find the best wide-leg linen pants for the end of summer.
