Searching for summer pants that aren't shorts? These are some great shorts alternate options!
The weather has gotten warm, and we're moving past jeans and black leggings season. That's right, it's time to start thinking about your summer wardrobe. If you're anything like me…..while you love summer, shorts are……not your favorite. Yes, I have a great guide to shorts for a pear shaped body. And yes, there are some great options out there. But, it's also a great time to wear lightweight summer pants with simple tees or a great blouse.
This? A guide to a few of my favorite summer pants options for those of us with a pear shaped body.
A few things to consider when shopping for lightweight summer pants:
What colors will be the most summer friendly and useable with the items you already own and love to wear during warmer months?
What heel height do you normally wear? You'll want to hem pants to fit that height. For me? It's almost always flats, sneakers or low platform sandals these days. So, I want to be sure my pant won't be dragging on the ground.
What type of waistband is most comfortable for you? I've gotta be honest, in the summer…..I'd prefer an elastic or gathered waistband over a fitted waist and button fly (and if we're being REALLY honest, that's what I'd prefer year round).
What works for your usual summer activities? Do you go to the beach alot? Hike? Brunches? What are you going to get the most use out of? That? Is worth investing in.
These few of my favorite options for easy breezy summer pants. They're easy to travel with, can be worn a TON of different ways, and are classic styles that you can be sure you'll wear year after year.
Let's talk joggers. I'm an athleisure fan, and a great pair of lightweight joggers? Can easily be worn with cute tee shirts and sneakers for a casual summer outfit. The joggers in this outfit are a recent purchase from Athleta and I LOVE them. They are breathable, comfortable and come in a killer size range. These are great for running errands, outdoor days, and casual summer events.
Do these pants give you deja vu? Yup, if you're over a certain age…..PALAZZO PANTS ARE BACK! I have to be honest, when I ordered these, I felt it could really go either way. Would I love or hate them? Spoiler, I already ordered them in a second color. These pants are versatile, comfy and super flattering. They can easily be worn as a swimsuit coverup, with a tee and sandals and are perfect for bringing along as a staple item on a beach vacation.
