Lightweight Linen: Our Favorite Linen Pants & Tops for Summer

white linen two-piece set

As the weather heats up, people turn to lightweight materials to create their go-to summer outfits. But linen provides more than just a light summer fabric! This material is also incredibly durable, breathable, absorbent, and so versatile. We love how easy it is to mix and match this unique textured style with many other pieces.

If you’re looking for linen pants and tops for summer to spruce up your minimalist wardrobe for the season, we have curated a selection of our favorites for you to explore. Check out blouses, bottoms, and so much more at Crescent!

1. Tops

You might be used to seeing linen in loose-fitting, classic silhouettes – like button-down shirts and tees. But Crescent has put our thoughtful twist on timeless cuts and styles. Our two favorite linen tops for summer include a buttoned blouse and a one-shoulder piece!

Long-Sleeve Linen

Some of our favorite shirts for summer are long-sleeve styles that have the same breathable freedom as tees with a little more sophistication. For our long-sleeve styles, we generally blend linen with a breathable viscose material to ensure you’re staying cool in the sun. We’ll also design silhouettes with a deep v-neckline and generous sleeves to ensure you’re always feeling breezy while adding details like cuffed wrists and button details that create an elevated, tailored feel to a more casual shirt. As you’re shopping for long-sleeve styles, make sure to explore colors like ivory, sand, and cream – the ideal hues for neutral ensembles.

Wondering what types of outfits you can create with this linen top for summer? We love pairing the long-sleeve tops with loose-fitting cuffed shorts for a day at the beach or tying up these style tops and wearing them with a white midi skirt for brunch with the girls.

One Shoulder Tops

If you want something a little more playful and feminine than a button-down, collared shirt, a one-shoulder top is a perfect choice! An asymmetrical neckline is super interesting, and many of our styles provide adjustability to ensure they fit your shape. 

If your blouse happens to be a little cropped, we would pair it with high-waisted bottoms. Whether you prefer paper bag linen pants for summer or high-rise jeans, both look great with this shirt!

2. Bottoms

Many people prefer to keep covered, even during the hottest summer months. However, the sweltering heat can make full-length pants uncomfortable – unless you’re wearing breathable linen! Check out linen pants that are designed to keep you feeling light, airy, and effortless.

Linen Pants

You might be used to seeing linen pants for summer in tan, sand, and ivory colors, but we’ve got something new and exciting to add to your wardrobe. Many of the linen pants in our collections come in unique colors, like clay, moss, and oatmeal to ensure you can keep your summer ensembles elegant and energetic.

Explore linen pants with fun details that elevate your look, like thicker belt loops, tapered fits, tortoise button-front, and even pleats. Whichever pants you choose, consider pairing them with a strapless top for an elevated look, or tuck in a linen top for a casual vibe.

Loose, Straight-Leg Pants

While some of our linen pants for summer offer you a more polished silhouette, Crescent also provides bottoms with a relaxed cut. Explore our straight-leg pants with smocked waistlines that make it easy to throw on a loose outfit before heading out for the day. Wear this style of pants as a set with a matching top or mix it with complementary or analogous colors.

3. Sets

Linen sets are the perfect way to get ready-made outfits for the season. They already come with a top and bottom thoughtfully designed to work together. Our preference is to add two or three sets to our wardrobe and then mix and match the tops and bottoms to create a nearly endless number of combinations. Check out sets with linen pants, skirts, and shorts for summer.

Skirt Set

An essential for both spring and summer, a flowy skirt set offers you a chic, minimalist silhouette that has a touch of elegance and flair. Instead of linen pants for summer, you should explore midi or midi-length wrap skirts that are lined to ensure a high-quality look and feel. To complement your bottoms, our sets come with thoughtfully-designed tops with interesting silhouettes. Consider a set with a smock-back top or one with a front-tie crop tank that has adjustable straps. We love our linen sets in neutral colors, like ivory and brown, to guarantee you find the perfect color for your aesthetic.

Short Sets

If you’re looking for something chic, comfortable, refined, and casual, you can get the best of all worlds with a short set ensemble. Our styles generally pair high-waisted silhouettes with a loose, yet structured lightweight cropped top. We also love to balance austere necklines and simple shapes with fun details, like ruching, buttons, and ties. Explore our short sets in tons of colors, including chocolate, oatmeal, and ivory.

4. Outerwear

Did you think our linen style list ended with summertime basics? We believe outerwear has its place in your warm-weather ensembles. Many of our linen-blend blazers, available in clay, moss, oatmeal, and black, provide the perfect finishing touch for an ensemble. Explore blazer styles with dropped shoulders, front patch pockets, notched collars, and oversized fits, to find the shape that fits you best. As you walk the line between elegant and relaxed, Crescent can help you create a matching outfit when you pair our blazers with tons of matching linen pant options!
