I Always Come Back to These 5 Linen Trousers From H&M


As soon as spring arrives, there’s a shift in my wardrobe, and as I pack away my heavy wools and insulating layers I’ve discovered this changeover comes in two distinct forms. One is fabrication. Whilst winter essentials take a back seat, the more seasonal fabrics come to the fore, from airy cotton to the most reliable material for the warmer months—linen. In its composition, linen is positioned as a key material as we move into warmer days, thanks to its naturally airy construction, which keeps the wearer cool in any form it comes in, from shirts to dresses to trousers.

The second feature of my wardrobe shift is a change in silhouette, from the structured form of winter, I’m ready to move into more relaxed styles embracing the laid-back nature of the coming months. And if there’s one piece that embodies both lightweight textile and ease of design that spring calls for, its linen trousers. Lucky for us, H&M has a wide selection of linen trouser styles to suit all preferences, just in time for the seasonal shift.

With each season comes a key piece that defines it. Autumn claims knitwear, winter is all about a great coat, and spring and summer share in the brilliance of the linen trouser. It’s not just the airy composition that suits these to the warmer months, but the relaxed feel of linen, making for an understated addition to any outfit. What’s more, the natural crinkling makes it a fuss-free item, requiring no ironing which is always a win in my eyes. True to form, H&M has considered that style is personal, with a mix of wide-leg, tailored and slimmer styles to suit the wearers individual needs. Plus, the styles are offered up in a range of versatile neutrals, as well as few stand-out shades to make finding the pair for you even easier.
