Living in Southern California means that linen is a staple in my closet all year long, but there’s something idyllic about linen in the summer. Linen is a great fabric for the warmer months as it’s lightweight and breathable. Not only does linen give you that effortless I’m-on-holiday-in-Europe look, but it’s better for the environment since it’s more sustainable and biodegradable than other fabrics. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve found myself gravitating more towards linen shorts during summer instead of denim shorts. A pair of linen shorts checks all my boxes when it comes to clothing: breezy and comfortable, chic, easy to style, made of sustainable material, and long lasting. Check out my favorite linen shorts for summer along with other options below.
Posse is an Australian based label that promotes slow fashion with their high quality garments and less is more philosophy. Their Ducky Shorts are the perfect high waisted paperbag linen shorts for summer. I love that they are available in a variety of colors. I have the natural color and they’re great for when I want something dressier than my everyday linen shorts. These shorts are 100% linen with an elastic waist and pockets. A size S is the perfect fit on me.
I’ve had these Rachel Pally Sandy Shorts for over a year, and I can honestly say that they are the perfect everyday shorts. I’ve been able to wear them throughout all seasons, whether I’m lounging around or out running errands. These linen blend shorts are so comfortable and have become an essential part of my wardrobe. Like the Ducky Shorts, these also have an elasticized waist and pockets. I wear a size S for an easy, relaxed fit.
Add a pair of linen shorts to your collection and you’ll be comfortably chic this summer and for years to come.
