Summer Pants That Are Comfy, Not Schlumpy

12 pairs of stylish, casual pants that are guaranteed to be as comfortable as sweats
Six to Sunday

It’s summertime, and let’s be honest, comfort is key. Sure we love a breezy dress, but some days call for the kind of errand running, people meeting, and chore doing that only pants can accommodate.

We’ve gone ahead and pulled our faves—they offer all the comfort of a sweatpant but with enough polish so you won’t feel schlumpy.

Our advice? Look for breathable materials (cotton, linen) and loose construction. And if you feel like going the extra style mile, instead of pairing them with a sneaker, wear them with a pretty sandal (in a color even!), a ballet flat, or an espadrille.

Top your look with a long, cotton duster or jean jacket and you’re good to go.

Casual Pants with a Zipper


Classic khaki pants that you’ll live in all summer long.

Boden Casual Cotton Pants

White House Black Market

A skinny-straight style with LOTS of stretch allows these to mold to any shape. We love them with a tee or a button-down alike.

White House Black Market Mid-Rise Pret-A-Pedi Crop Pants

Marine Layer

This is the kind of pant that looks like relaxed trousers but feels like pajamas. Consider it summer perfection.

Marine Layer Elle Relaxed Crop Pant

Wrap London

Incredibly flattering shape in yummy colors and done in buttery-soft linen.

Wrap London Relaxed Trousers


A classic, trouser-ish summer pant in navy (a summer fave) with kicky white topstitching.

Monrow Cotton Twill Wide Leg Trousers

Velvet by Graham Spencer

The Maya pant is a Velvet brand staple and no wonder it’s often sold out. It’s relaxed, yet the tailoring keeps it from looking too casual.

Velvet by Graham & Spencer Mya Pant

Nili Lotan

This is what we call a “slim wide leg” at Six to Sunday. The wide-ish leg that’s slightly cropped (it’ll look good on women with height and will also work for shorties) and is shaped just right. They’re roomy but tailored, and the waistband is the perfect width. We all have a pair and they’re worth every penny.

Nili Lotan Shon Wide-Leg Pants

Casual Pants with Some Stretch


If a track pant were to marry a linen slack, this would be their baby. The extra wide waistband gives this an extra “cool” factor while also being incredibly midline friendly.

Everlane The Canvas Organic Cotton Pull-On Pant


We love the airy, lightweight fabric, and the elasticized (pull-on) waistband makes them the perfect grab-and-go pants.

Pilcro Linen Drawstring Pants


The wide waistband is comfortable and flattering, and the exaggerated wide leg is accommodating and amps up the style.

Anthropologie The Somerset Pull-On Pants

Marine Layer

Marine Layer’s #1 bestselling pant that is both casual and dressy at the same time. Made with recycled materials in an easy, relaxed fit.

Marine Layer Re-Spun Allison Pant


The style is akin to a men’s pajama pant, and we like-y: roomy, casual, oh so comfortable. Buyer's note, the sizing is standard but it runs long (shorties: just roll them at the hem).

Monrow Poplin Pocket Pants
