Linen is my go-to fabric during the summer months, and it also happens to be an essential part of the coastal grandmother wardrobe. Since it seems to be the trend of the summer, I wanted to share three ways to style a pair of white linen pants. Although I typically am not one for following trends, I will always make room for a trend that makes you feel like the main character of a Nancy Meyers film.
What I love about coastal grandmother inspired outfits is how effortlessly put together they look. An oversized striped button-up is a simple way to dress up a pair of linen pants for an everyday uniform. Style with mules and a straw basket tote for the perfect summer look fit for a trip to the farmers market or dinner al fresco.
One of my favorite summer traditions is taking a sunset stroll after dinner on vacation. It’s honestly my ideal way to wind down and end the day. Since It’s usually a little chillier during the evening at the beach, tossing on a cozy sweater with linen pants is a great outfit choice. Of course, this coastal grandmother look wouldn’t be complete without a canvas bucket hat.
Linen pants also make a great coverup for a day at the beach or pool. They’re perfect to pop on over a one-piece swimsuit for an afternoon lunch run but light enough to wear laying out in the sun when you want a little more coverage. Style this pool day outfit with a beach bag (I love this canvas tote), slides, and a hat. This straw hat is under $35 and has a cute blue and white striped ribbon.
