While we’d like nothing more than to prance around in our boxers all day during summer, there comes a time when pants become inevitable. And when they’re comfy and breathable, we complain a lot less. There are plenty of online places that offer breathable linen and cotton pants. Here are the places that make it to our list.
Bye-Bye Jeans: Get Summer-Friendly Pants From These Places Instead

Marks & Spencer
M&S is all about clean cuts and minimalism. Their collection comprises of linen, cotton and lyocell pants in both neutrals (black, white, tan and olive), as well as bright, summer-y colours like yellow, orange, and teal blue. We usually stick to blacks and beige at M&S that pretty much go with everything and are perfect for various occasions. It’s expensive but so worth it.

The Loom brings the best of handmade clothes from across the country to one place, all of which look stunning and are value for money. Apart from the regular linen and cottons, they’ve got mul fabric pants too. For daily wear, check out their brown pants and pleated khadi pants (with pockets!). Also, their Grey Striped Handwoven Cotton Pants and the pair of Mustard Mangalgiri Cotton Paneled Sharara Pants (would look perfect with a white khadi kurta) are some of our other favourites.

Ethnic or formal, printed or solid colours, slim-fit or flared, Jaypore’s got a great variety of summer-friendly palazzos. We’ve been eyeing a pair of their lovely Blue Elasticated Waist Cotton Palazzo, and their Pink Elasticated Waist Cotton Dobby Palazzo and have already started saving up for these Black Silver Straight Khadi Cotton Pants. While their variety of pants is limited, Jaypore makes up for it with its killer collection (& variety) in palazzos. They’ve even got a few cotton silks – perfect for those dressy summer functions.
Price: Starting at INR 900
We’ve come to really love and rely on AJIO for budget-friendly, wardrobe quick-fixes that don’t compromise on aesthetics. They have a large collection of palazzo pants in bright colours (team these up with white shirts or t-shirts) and those in basic colours too. They’ve got some prints in the mix as well, but we weren’t as impressed by them. We’d rely on their white pleated pants and their navy blue culottes to breeze through summer.
Price: Starting at INR 550
