Fact: Linen is one of the best fabrics you can wear in scorching hot summer weather. The fiber is quick-drying, breathable, and sustainably made. (It’s actually made from flax, which is biodegradable, requires little water to grow, and the whole plant can be used.) Plus, lightweight linen is the perfect summertime material to lounge around in. We Marie Claire editors happen to absolutely love linen in all kinds of forms in the summer—we’ve even rounded up a few of the very best linen dresses (opens in new tab) to prove our collective devotion to the fabric—but there's nothing quite like owning a classic pair of the best linen pants, ones you'll want to wear every day. 

So, we took the time to round up a few of the cutest-ever options to show you right here—and our selections do not disappoint. They’re stylish, yes, but many of our favorite pairs are also priced at under $50. These summer-ready bottoms are entirely crucial to surviving  heat-wave-level temperatures because, let’s face it, even the best summer dresses (opens in new tab) in your closet need a break from time to time!
