The hardest part about warm-weather styling (at least for the maximalist) is packing personality into an outfit that’s just one or two layers. We’ve rounded up 15 pairs of pants that do all the work for you, but are still breezy enough to wear when it starts getting hot.
If You’re Comfy and Trendy
If You Want to Look Like an Influencer
Pair these stripes with a colorful wall mural and an artisanal ice-cream cone.
If You’re Super Artsy
Don’t be daunted by the fancy print — these black-and-white flared pants can be dressed up or down, and go great with a simple top or tunic.
If You’ve Been Wearing Black All Winter
All-white is a classic summer look that’s practical in the light-reflecting sense, if not in the stain-repelling one.
If You’re Going on Vacation
A light, floral pant seamlessly transitions from the airplane to the beach to a casual dinner.
If You Have a Job
Pinstripe pants can be fun too! The relaxed shape is breezy, but still crisp. Pair with mules and plans after work.
If You Think Leopard Is a Neutral
If You’re Loyal to Princess Di
If You Love Picnics
These pants are park- (and wicker-basket-) ready.
If You Don’t Mind The Spotlight
All eyes will be on you in these wide-legged, magenta pants. Take it to the next level and wear all pink, or tone it down with a white tee and sneaks. Either way, they’re a scene-stealer.
If You Have Royal-Wedding Fever
If You’re a Summer Goth
Can’t go wrong with a dark floral. It’s still festive!
If You Don’t Want to Leave Your Bed
If You Appreciate Ladylike Tailoring
This is what Grace Kelly would wear on her yacht in 2018. Do her a favor and wear them too.
If You’re Just a Ray of Sunshine
These Tory Burch pants just make you wanna smile. Who doesn’t want to wear a rainbow?
