Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share my latest wardrobe addition: A pair of bright red wide leg linen pants. Although my wardrobe contains several items of color, I’m trying to add a bit more and create more looks using it instead of my usual ” go to black and white” ones ( don’t judge) LOL!
For starters, these “medium weight”linen pants look and feel amazing!!! I recently scored them and a few more items during J Crew’s end of summer sale. Self control was a definite must; I wanted to load my online cart with everything!!! I definitely foresee adding miles to these with the plus of dressing them up with a pair of pumps and a blazer or down with a white tee and a pair of loafers or sneakers.
Now I know the wrinkled appearance of linen fabric causes some to avoid it like the plague. Please don’t let that deter you, try wearing it the remainder of this season or even next season.
So here’s a tip before wearing linen pants: Lightly starch, set the iron on the “linen” setting, then iron. You’ll be amazed at the outcome and the added bonus of minimal wrinkling throughout the day.
To complete the look, I added my long time warm weather staple; a MADRAS blazer. Unfortunately the pants sold out in most sizes, but similar) here , here and here with a pair of gold slippers (Zara) similar here, and here .
Please know I usually style myself using items already owned and I mostly shop “on sale”. If you’re interested in achieving the entire look in any post or just like an item or two; I’ll try my best to link exact or similar items.
As always, thanks for stopping by,
