Worth It: The Breezy Summer Pant I’ve Been Wearing for 5+ Years


I’ve been wearing linen beach pants for years, well before I first wore them on the blog in 2016. Although I love my denim shorts, sometimes I just want my legs covered–but I don’t want to be hot.

The Breezy Linen Pants I Rely On Summer After Summer

These pants are so easy to throw on and go…to the beach, running errands, out to dinner, whatever. They’re super easy to dress up or down, incredibly comfy, and I love the laid-back vibe. (Best part? My current pair, the Roxy Oceanside pants, are under $40!)

Lots of reviewers say they run long, and although that’s true, I always wash and dry them to shrink them up a bit before I wear them. I size up (wearing a large here) because they have a lower rise and I need more room for my butt. They shrink a bit in the dryer –especially in the length– and afterward they’re perfect.

I can wear them with these platform sandals like I am here or with my flatter Birks (see the look here). And if you aren’t into the lower rise of the Roxy Oceanside pants, Caslon makes a pair that are super similar and just as comfortable–I wore them when I was pregnant and needed a bit more room! (They come in regular and petite sizes, too!)
