How To Style White Linen Wide-Leg Pants For Summer

Linen is my fabric of choice in spring and summer. I love wearing it because it is cooling, and I even love the wrinkles. Maybe it is because I see a few more wrinkles when I look in the mirror, but I’m embracing linen with a newfound love. I have been looking for a new navy linen blazer to replace one that I’ve had for years since it is faded and shabby-looking. I found exactly what I was looking for at Talbots, along with a pair of white linen wide-leg pants. Here are two ways I’ll be wearing the pants for summer.

Style White Linen Wide-Leg Pants With A Blazer

Chic, crisp, and clean-looking—that perfectly describes these wide-leg white linen pants. They are a wonderful, classic piece of clothing that can be worn for years and can be dressed up or down. I love the flowy, effortless-looking style of these pants. They remind me of old-school movie stars, and I can see Maureen O’Hara walking the streets of Hollywood in pants like these. I’m wearing my usual size 8, and these fit me perfectly.

I added a striped Effortless Jersey Raglan Tee in navy and white. The square neckline adds a modern touch to the outfit. The top has elbow-length sleeves that are great for spring and summer and cover the upper arms, which can be a problem area for many women. The jersey material is perfect for on-the-go looks and is great for work or play. I’m wearing a medium, and the fit is perfect.

I was so happy when I found this Classic Linen Blazer! This blazer will become a staple in my closet that will be worn in multiple ways. One of my favorite things to do is wear a blazer with jeans. Blazers elevate everything you pair them with, and a casual/elevated look is my favorite way to dress. Although I rarely wear a blazer buttoned, I wanted to show you how it looks when worn that way. I’m wearing a size 10, and it fits me great.

The blazer is a classic style with a tailored fit. Although oversized clothing is trending, I prefer my blazers to fit closer to my body.

I added the Raffia Crossbody Bag which is the perfect size to hold all my essentials. I love large totes, but if I’m shopping, sightseeing, etc., I want a smaller bag that I can securely wear across my body. My phone, small wallet, lip gloss, sunglasses, and keys are usually all I need, and they fit in this easily.

The Nappa Slingback Flats in ivory and navy are perfect for the classic look I wanted. I love pointed-toe shoes since they elongate my legs, and the slingback design is one I wear all the time. These fit true to size, and the memory foam footbed makes them comfortable to walk in for extended periods of time.

Style White Linen Wide-Leg Pants With A Pop Of Color

The first way I wore the white linen wide-leg pants for spring and summer was a classic style. But I’m a color-loving girl, so I wanted to style them with a pop of color.

This Spring Floral V-neck Pullover in pink and orange grabbed my attention. I love the color combination, and the white in the print looks perfect styled with the white linen pants. This sweater is lightweight and so soft! I love everything about this sweater, and I’ll be wearing it on repeat this year. It will look great with jeans, shorts, or capris. I’m wearing a medium, and it fits me perfectly.

The sweater hits me on the hips, which is the length I prefer. I can tuck the sweater in if I want, and it is long enough that I won’t feel the need to tug or pull it down.

The Leather Trim Geo Straw Tote is a good medium-sized handbag. There are times when you need to carry more than just the essentials, and this size bag is perfect. I normally carry small pouches inside totes like this to keep my things separated. Yesterday, my granddaughter asked for chapstick and a ponytail holder, and her friend needed a pair of scissors. Yes, I had all that in my bag. Lol! I wasn’t even a Boy Scout, but I am always prepared.

  3. Carole from Canada says:

    I have a couple of wide leg pants. A black pair and an orange pair. Just love these pants. My favorite vacation was in November with all my family, 15 of us, to Cancun for 1 week. 10 adults and 5 teens. These memories last forever.

  4. Linen is a fabulous material for summer! I love the outfit with the white pants, striped tee and blazer. It’s very classy looking.

    So many great ideas! Can’t wait to wear white pants once the snow and slush is gone.

  7. We love all beach vacations. I also love my linen pants. I’m trying to decide if I can wear them to my granddaughter’s graduation.

    Best vacation ever: Yellowstone National Park. Fascinating, magical & such a sacred place of America’s heritage. Memorable, as we got charged by a 1200 lb. Moose!

    1. Oh, my! They can be very dangerous and aggressive.

  9. Susan Mckenzie says:

    One can not miss with a white linen pant!!! It is always my one Spring/Summer staple that I cannot do without!! My favorite vacation is anywhere tropical and water!! Not a bit particular except those two needs??!!!!

  10. Love the pants, striped shirt and blazer. I just ordered the entire outfit for work.
    Your posts are wonderful, and I can’t wait each day to read about your daily antics. I too have a cat looks like “Tom” he is definitely demanding but also very loving.

  11. Love those linen pants!

  12. Love wide leg pants. White linen pants are a spring summer staple. May have to get these. I have been blessed with many great trips but by far my favorite was my honeymoon in Las Vegas. My husband and I had many romantic moments but we sure did party!!! Lol

  13. My favorite vacation was Maui, Hawaii. We didn’t want to leave either! Returning home I could still smell the fragrance of that sea and surf. The navy blazer and white pants are spot on chic!

  14. Sue Koren says:

    I need to try the wide leg trend

  15. These outfits scream spring. I love them all, but I find Talbots pricey when not on sale. I bought pants that look the same at the GAP, along with a blazer. Just an idea for those who’d like it.

  16. Your straw tote is lovely.

  17. Leslie Strothers says:

    Love linen pants, prefer flax, off white or black color…

  18. Vicki Farrell says:

    Love white pants and bright tops! Our best trip was to Grenada in the southern Caribbean! Spent one week tall ship sailing and a couple weeks just hanging out- it was glorious!

  19. Our best vacation, by far, was an Alaskan cruise. We were able to take our entire family – 6 adults and 2 pre-teens. it really was the trip of a lifetime..

  20. Dorothy Terwilliger says:

    Love the bright colors and fit of the floral top. Talbots is my favorite store to shop.
    My land and cruise 13 day trip to Alaska several years ago was my most memorable and enjoyable trip. By booking the whole adventure together showed us so much.

  21. I too love linen pants. Cute outfits. Thank you for the inspiration!!!🩷

  22. Love the navy blazer and white pants outfit with the accessories. Very sharp. I wish I could find a navy linen blazer that’s not lined for summer. I like linen pants too and have a few. I used to not like the wrinkles but it doesn’t bother me. I heard that’s the charm of linen. Sadly I am donating my white linen pants that I love. I tried them on and saw the back. The material is thin and there’s back pockets. The middle area looks like I have on a thong. I was appalled and I hope I wore them with a longer jacket in the past. I just now can’t deal with it.

    1. Lol! That made me laugh. I understand what you mean about the pockets. White pockets almost always show through in all white pants, even if they aren’t linen.

  23. Pam Bowling says:

    I loved both ways you styled the white linen pants. I also love the raffia crossbody bag.
    My favorite trip was taken last year in February. My brother and sister in law traveled to Israel for the first time. We spent 10 days there. We went with a church tour group. It was the experience of a lifetime. It is especially important to me considering the events that have taken place there since October. God blessed us to see His beautiful country. 🙏🏻🙌🏼🩷🇮🇱

    1. That sounds like a fantastic trip!

  24. I do love white linen pants!! I need to get some new ones. I have had mine forever!! Love the colorful pullover top with them too!!

  25. Ginger Hiller says:

    I have a three way tie for my favorite places we have visited. They are: Wyoming, Montana, and Alaska. It’s always good to be prepared by having everything in our handbag. I really like the colorful top with the white linen pants. I have a few pair of linen pants in my closet, and two to try on from ON. One is white and the other is lavender. My fingers are crossed that both fit.

  26. Linen is such a classic for summer! I love the pink sweater too!

    1. That sweater is so pretty in person.

  27. White linen is definitely a summer staple! I absolutely LOVE the straw tote!!! Happy Tuesday❤❤❤

  30. Roberta Schwandner says:

    I love the white pants.

  31. Kerri White says:

    cute outfits! the best trip we took was a cross country road trip starting in Pennsylvania and driving to Washington state and back. We camped out during most of the trip and had an open schedule so we could stay in different places longer if we wanted. We were gone 23 days!

    1. I think that sounds wonderful, but I bet Joe would hate it.

  32. I love Talbots! Always classic looks!

  33. Our trip to Ireland was the best vacation we’ve been on. It was our first trip out of the country and we fell in love with the Irish people and culture.

  34. I love your white linen pants and blazer, very french chic!

  35. Navy and white are my favorite color combination.
    It always looks so fresh.
    I am still struggling with the wide, flowy leg pants on my petite frame. I feel swallowed up by them. They look chic on you though.

  36. Debbie Tidwell says:

    The blazer and white pants are calling my name! Thank you for the inspiration .

  37. Barb Huff says:

    Last week I purchased a pair of wide legged linen pants b4 your article came out. Now I’m so glad I did.

  38. I love a white pant with a bright top, but all the combinations you show are amazing.

    Cancun sounds wonderful!! Our best trip was to Italy many years ago 🇮🇹

    1. Italy is my bucket list trip. Maybe one day….

  39. Love your linen outfits! The South of France, Monaco and Nova Scotia were my favorite trips. I didn’t want to leave any of them! When in Nova Scotia my husband and I were so smitten we were stopping in real estate offices!

    1. Joe and I always are looking at the real estate in areas we love. Lol!

  40. Karen Robbins says:

    White linen pants are a summer staple. I’m always sad to put them away after Labor Day. They are perfect to pack for vacation! My favorite vacation was a trip to Hawaii with my sweet late husband. We always said we would go there again, but it wasn’t in God’s plans. My memories are sweet.

    1. I don’t put my white items away, I wear them all year round.

  41. Love, love the blazer and white pants, looks so chic on you! Great job!

  42. Floral top is nice & bright & pretty! The best vacations were going to the beach in N. Carolina Nags Head 13 years in a row we don’t go much anymore. We are saving for retirement, but I think we are due to go soon.

  43. Cheryl Howe says:

    I love white and navy blue in the summer! When we retired we went to Cancun and stayed at a resort for a week; then we took the ferry over to Isla Mujeres and rented an Airbnb for 3 more weeks. We absolutely loved it!

    1. We may try to go back, but I’m afraid it would never be as great a trip.

      1. every trip is a new adventure. my advice is go to a different resort so you don’t compare.
        I love our southern warm vacations that take us away from our Canadian winter but best trip is a tie between France, which we did 5 years ago and Germany that we did last summer. Europe is just so beautiful

        1. We keep talking about an overseas trip, but talking is all we ever do.

          1. do it….life is unpredictable. you won’t regret it. Germany specifically, we found easy. everyone speaks English and with Google translator, you can. always figure it out. a good way to dip your toes is a cruise…back to a familiar environment every night. personally I love the adventure of discovering a. new country…but a cruise is a good way to start.
