4 Ways to Style the H&M Linen Trousers


When it comes to curating my spring capsule wardrobe, there’s one piece that I simply can’t live without, and that’s linen trousers. When dressing ourselves we’re often striving to find that perfect balance of comfort and style, and what item better toes this line than a pair of lightweight linen pants? The fact that they’re just so versatile and require little thought is just another reason to love them. Running errands, meeting friends for brunch, or long days in the office—for myself and practically the entirety of the Who What Wear office, they’re a spring staple—no matter what the occasion, wearing them you’ll always feel polished.

Among the plethora of options out there, there’s one pair I reach for the most in my wardrobe: the H&M Linen Trousers. From the moment I slip them on, I feel instantly put-together yet relaxed (no doubt with the help of the elasticated waistband). Crafted from a luxurious linen blend and featuring a slightly high waist, these trousers are a dream to wear. What’s more is that their versatility knows no bounds—sneakers or sandals, you can quite literally transition from day to night with just a change of footwear or accessories.

A favourite way for me to execute them of late, is to go for a pair with a matching tailored vest (another hero in my spring arsenal). Tailoring is, and always will be, considered smart—there’s no doubt about it. But doing it without the restraints of a fitted blazer and buttoned-up waistband? You can count me in. Pair a linen two piece with some sandals et voilà, that’s a chic daytime look completed without much thought. When it comes to evening occasions—date nights or dinners with friends—layering them with a sleek bodysuit and blazer provides unequivocal sophisticated. And this is just two of the many, many ways I love to wear them. From bar to beach, keep scrolling for all the ways I’m looking to style these trousers this season.

Style Notes: For a cool-girl approach, team the trousers with a pair of sneakers. I love a tonal look, so like to play with hues in a similar neutral palette. To add a point of difference, play with textures like suede or this sleek bodysuit.
