Hello all! Sorry I have been so MIA. After my business trip to Germany I have had to catch up on a lot and now that summer is here there are lots of things to get done around the house and lots of extra festivities ;-)
Today I wanted to give you a few inspiration ideas on styling white linen pants. I think that white linen is a great way to scream SUMMER via your attire without wearing shorts. They are light, airy, and can be dressed up, down, or in between. I like that they cover your whole leg- this prevents shaving and bug bites… win win!
I found my white linen pants at T.J.Maxx for $20. I will say if you are naturally spill prone, try and find a coffee colored pair of linens. Much more stain proof ;-)
I’ve linked to a few places with white linen pants below if you are convinced after reading this :-) One thing I would suggest is trying to find a pair WITH back pockets (extra coverage, obvi) and again stating the obvious, but stating it any ways- wear neutral undergarments ya’ll…
The first style is more dressy/beachy. While I’m not really a beach person, the idea of sun, warm sand, and being care free is occasionally very appealing, and this outfit made me feel that way.
I styled a pink button up top (Tommy Hilfiger – thrifted for $4!) with a gray short sleeve underneath because it was a tad see-through and a cami wasn’t cutting it. Usually I will just resort to a t-shirt for layering if my outfit doesn’t allow me to wear a half tee or cami. It worked out well in this outfit. I also paired this with tan lace up wedges (also thrifted – $6!).
The second outfit is more relaxed and boho- a chambray shirt over a t-shirt is a great summer piece to have to go from warmer days to cooler nights. I paired this with flip flops and a crossbody bag (also from T.J. Maxx)
The last look could go either way (beachy or boho) but a great way to wear linen pants is with a tunic top or a dress on top! I paired my top with a gray tank top half tee and wedges. This would also look super cute with a jean jacket on top :-)
Wearing a long top with a small wedge really elongates the waist and the color contrast makes the white pants pop and look really classy :-)

I hope this has given you some ideas on how to style white linen pants this summer!
Until next time… keep on keeping on!
