What is one item you didn’t know you needed to make the seasonal transition without much investment? If you guessed Amazon Essential’s Linen Pants, (you’re probably cheating, but) you’d be correct!
I have recently discovered the self-defining Amazon Essentials line, which specializes in…wait for it….wardrobe essentials. These are no ordinary wardrobe staples, however, but instead elevated examples of what affordable apparel should be.
My first foray into Amazon Essentials was their t-shirts. You really can’t beat a 2-pack for $16 (available in 34 color combos!), so I figured that price point made it worth investigating! I’m so glad I did. They’re probably the best t-shirts I own, and as reviewers stated, they were longer than most t-shirts these days, and far less boxy, overall. Plus-the fabric is incredibly soft. (They didn’t shrink when I washed in cold and dried on low.)
As I’m sure you can understand, this made the bar very high for the $25 linen pants. WIth the summer transitioning into autumn quickly, now, I figured this was the time when I would get the most use out of them. Summers nights can cool dramatically into September, but be pretty hot in the daytime. Linen is the perfect in-between to being comfortable in both warm and humid, or cooler-and-humid.
The reviews say the white are less see-through than you would expect, but all are as comfortable as you would expect.
TIP: As with all things linen, if you’re going to wash them-do it in cold water, and allow them to air dry for minimal shrinkage.
There are a couple of different options when ordering the pants, a full-length option, a cropped option, and – via their other in-house brand Daily Ritual, a flat-front wide leg pant for occasions that require a bit more polish. They are all available in a variety of sizes and colors:
