15 Pairs of Bold Pants That Make Getting Dressed So Easy

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

Side Stripe Track Pants
$65 at Topshop

Sky blue is a quintessential “it’s warm now” color. Bonus points if you get Birkenstocks to bring out the red.

If You Want to Look Like an Influencer

Candy Stripe Wide Leg Trousers
$85 at Topshop

Pair these stripes with a colorful wall mural and an artisanal ice-cream cone.

If You’re Super Artsy

Flared Pants
$119 at H&M

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

Paloma Wool Vera Pant in White
$159 at Need Supply

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

Wide-Leg Pants
$60 at H&M

A light, floral pant seamlessly transitions from the airplane to the beach to a casual dinner.

If You Have a Job

Trouvé Stripe Jogger Pants
$79 at Nordstrom

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 Don’t Mind The Spotlight

Nobody knows how to wear plaid like the royals. Show off your Anglophilia in a chic way.

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
