With spring well underway and summertime quickly approaching, my mind is only going one place: answering the ultimate question of where to vacation this coming season? For every sun-filled escape, unavoidably comes my automatic census of my wardrobe to answer my next question: what to pack? There are definitely those timeless summer essentials that are on all of our lists. From straw sun hats and oversized sunnies to itty bitty bikinis and a little white dress, I have built up a list of staples that get packed on each trip out of town.
This spring, I’ve discovered a new obsession that will be making it’s way on every trip I take. Meet, the linen pant. Since staying effortlessly chic and cool is the ultimate goal of vacation dressing, there’s no more appropriate fabric than linen to frolic in along the beach. Free-flowing in the ocean breeze and sleek enough to sport to happy hour that night, it’s the ultimate brunch to beach staple for your suitcase.
Pick a pair of stripes or solids, cropped or flared, and style them up with a ruffle top, oversized sunnies, or statement earrings. You’ll be surprised when you start kicking your denim cut-offs to the curb for your lounge and night-out worthy linen pants! Shop a few of my favorites in the carousel below, and the pair I’m wearing above here.
Linen to Love
