Best Linen Pants 2020
I didn't understand the buzz around linen for the longest time.
No matter what piece I would try, I always found linen scratchy, stiff, and ALWAYS coming out of the washing machine with more deep-set wrinkles than Bingo night in Boca Raton!
However, after trying out a couple linen dresses, I became a convert and realized that linen is among the most indispensable fabrics, especially for the summer!
Linen is stronger, more absorbent, and lighter than nearly every other common clothing fabric. This combination is essential, as linen helps battle volatile summer weather while remaining lightweight and breathable.
I found that it's actually this very strength that makes linen occasionally scratchy, but luckily many brands have implemented comfortable linings and inseams that provide all linen's benefits without any inconvenience or discomfort!

The Best Brands that Make Great Linen Pants
Keep reading for reviews on each style of linen pant!
Best Linen Pants
Best Boho Linen Pants: Free People
Most Fashionable Linen Pants: Reformation
Reformation makes lots of great linen pieces and these pants are no exception.
Crafted from lightweight linen, these paper bag style pants cinch high on the waist with a removable belt. The best part?
The drapey ties at the ankle create a slight Aladdin style pant look that's chic and polished. Throw on these pants over a bathing suit, cuff the pants over some strappy heels and go from the beach to dinner!
Looks great with: a feminine blouse and simple strappy heels
Best Belted Linen Pants: Blank NYC
The less work you have to do getting ready (especially in summer!), the better.
Enter the Blank NYC Linen Belted Pants, a chic high-rise pant with spacious front pockets, a subtle knee flare, and a built-in belt cinched comfortably around an elastic paper bag waist!
These pants are made with 55% linen and 45% rayon, a natural fiber designed to mimic both the strength of linen and the comfort of silk!
Looks great with: white strappy sandals and a solid, dark-colored top!
Best Affordable Linen Pants: Amazon Essentials
If you just want some everyday loose, easy linen pants, these are for you.
They're affordable (under $30) and functional (pockets both in front and back). The elastic waistband makes them comfortable for all body types and they're incredibly lightweight which is perfect for humid, hot climates.
Just note – these are 100% linen but the fabric is on the sheerer side.
Looks great with: anything! these are great to lounge in, run errands or grab lunch.
Best Linen Pants for the Beach: Roxy
The Roxy Oceanside Pant Dobby, combines a gorgeous white linen fabric and an elastic waistband (with adjustable rope drawstrings) to perfectly evoke the comfort and style of beach life!
These pants also feature 4 pockets, which is the perfect amount to safeguard your belongings while enjoying a walk along the water!
Note that these pants have a slight see-through effect, so just be careful about what's going on underneath!
Looks great with: sandals and a see-through navy blue long-sleeve crew shirt!
Best White Linen Pants: J. Crew
J. Crew may be bankrupt, but pants like these are why the brand still has plenty of equity….in my book, at least!
Whether you're heading to the summer's hottest white-out party or lounging around the house playing with your dog, the versatile J. Crew Vicolo Drawstring Pants will get the job done!
The adjustable drawstring waist and simple front pockets provide the “anything goes” casual vibe, while the sleek fabric and flattering wide leg offer just enough style to class it up!
Looks great with: a solid, dark-colored spaghetti strap tank top tucked into the pants!
Best Linen Pants for All Body Types: Ralph Lauren
Linen is the ultimate “classy yet casual” fabric, and for our money, nothing nails that vibe better than the Ralph Lauren wide-leg linen pants.
The elastic waist and ultra-wide leg will provide any body type with an unbeatable look that screams both comfortable and confident.
And, always adding those sophisticated finishing touches, Ralph Lauren elevates these pants via the cute patch-button pockets and back darts that create a smooth, structured silhouette.
Looks great with: brown sandals and a simple, white top!
Most Comfortable Linen Pants: Tommy Bahama
I feel like I know a ton about clothes, and I'll admit I was surprised when I saw women's linen pants from Tommy Bahama.
Tommy Bahama fans are die-hard loyalists, always celebrating the brand's designs, craftsmanship, and simplicity. And after trying on the Two Palms Easy Pants, I can see why!
With a straight hem, simple elastic waistband, and 2 front hand pockets, the Two Palms are simple and classy linen pants at their finest!
Looks great with: black flip-flops and an over-sized lightweight white sweater!
Best Patterned Linen Pants: Splendid
You generally don't find patterns on linen clothing, which is what makes the Splendid wide leg pants so, well, splendid!
The cotton (73%) and linen (27%) blend is what enables the cute pattern, and although 27% doesn't sound like much, that's still plenty of linen to ensure lightweight comfort and style all summer long!
Looks great with: a white t-shirt and denim jacket!
