Though a classic pair of black jeans look cool year-round, as climates get muggier, opting for cooler, more weather appropriate materials is a wise move. And though there’s a good selection of SS19 shorts styles, some of us just favor fuller leg coverage. That’s where silk pants come in — winning the summer pants game with maximum breathability, a luxury feel, and more steezy designs for this season than ever before.
Not only lightweight and breathable, silk has the ability to regulate your body temperature and even has moisture-wicking properties — perfect for keeping you dry and comfortable in warmer climes. Associated with luxurious garments, needless to say that you may have to break your piggy bank when sourcing the perfect pair – but when you’re feeling the breeze on the clammiest summer days, it’ll all be worth it.
Here, we’ve carefully selected some of the best silk pants you can buy online right now. In our picks, you’ll find dope pants from unisex silk pants specialist Bananatime — including dope striped and African-inspired pairs — along with chic, wide-leg options by the likes of Jacquemus and Yohji Yamamoto.
