My love affair with linen sailor pants has no boundaries. I had to go back to my previous post on sailor pants to make sure I didn’t duplicate the title. I make no apologies – when your heart wants something, it will listen to no reason. And my heart is head over heels in love with the wide leg cut and the buttons of these linen sailor pants. I can’t resist them. I even bought it in the navy color.
Unlike my striped pair, these linen sailor pants are a cropped length. The lightweight material and shorter inseam make them perfect for summer. Some people stay away from linen because it wrinkles easily but I think it’s part of the unique look of the fabric and I fully embrace it. Linen tends to loosen and soften a little bit and conforms to your body which makes these pants so comfortable. I could lounge around in them all day!
The high waist of these sailor pants allows me to wear a cropped top with them. I would otherwise not venture into the cropped top trend but the hem of this top meets the waist band of the bottoms so I’m game.
I was smitten by the seams on the front that mimic the boning of a corset. A victorian era design executed in a very modern and casual fabric. I love when contradictory elements combine together and produce an unexpected combination. (Remember my Trench Coat Dress?)
The bow on the back of the denim top is truly adorable and the lace up detail of the pants evokes the notion of a lace up corset. Couldn’t be any more perfect!
The simple bamboo construction of my Cult Gaia Arc Bag is a natural complement to the crisp whiteness of the linen sailor pants.
