There are some women, no matter how hot and humid it is outside, who won’t wear shorts.  They also won’t wear skirts or dresses because, for them, baring their legs is as uncomfortable as it is for many women to bare their arms.

If you are one of the women who would wear a pair of pants, even if it meant wearing them to a visit to the surface of the sun, I am sharing some relaxed casual summer pants to consider.  This season there seems to be a lot of styles to check out, so let’s get started.

Relaxed Casual Summer Pants

Outfit #1

The waist tie on these super cute bright orange cropped poplin pants from J. Crew add something fun and special to these relaxed casual summer pants.  Perhaps they’re not for those who prefer to not to tuck or who feel a little self conscious about their mid-section, but for those with a curvier shape, these pants can work really well.  Plus, they’re lightweight and great for hot days.

I styled this pair with an olive top from Boden, a pair of gold slides from Steve Madden, olive tote from Monserat De Lucca and layered necklace from Nordstrom.

Outfit #2

If you prefer a little swoosh in your pants with an elastic waist, you might be interested in a style like this from COS.  It wears more like a skirt, but isn’t, and gives great range of motion.  I styled these pants with a red and white striped t-shirt from Madewell, cobalt platform sandals, white handbag from French Connection and turquoise necklace from Kenneth Jay Lane.

Outfit #3

This last look I am putting a dressy spin on a pair of joggers.  I styled these Athleta pants with a open stitch sweater and tank from Chico’s.  Finishing the outfit, I added a pair of comfortable Birkenstocks, a grey backpack and pendant from Lucky Brand.
