The Demise Of White Linen Pants:Fifty Plus Style

2012 Cruise and Devon 052 (2)

I’m quite sad that white linen pants are no longer ‘of the moment’ because I used to rely on them so heavily for sightseeing holidays.  Cool and comfortable, they went with everything and I think that’s the thing that contributed to their demise.  Everyone wore them and we got sick of them.

I no longer own these pants, instead I wear white or blue jeans, or khaki harems, but none of them quite hit the mark for something like this day in Bilbao.  Jeans: too hot, khaki, too casual. Do you see what I mean?

Now I could rock a frock, but when you go on holiday with my husband, you have to be prepared to walk miles and miles, so a dress doesn’t always work. And before you suggest shorts, go and wash your mouth out with soap! Shorts will never be a part of a short, slightly overweight, freckly, pale skinned girl’s wardrobe.  Got it?

So, if I do perchance see a pair of white linen wide legged pants (no elasticated waist or drawstrings please) then I will be snapping them up for my summer holidays.  I’d like them to be petite length, reasonably thick cotton and good quality (no-one needs to see my knickers).  Anyone out there stocking them?

  1. I with you on the shorts, I look awful in them, wouldn’t be caught dead wearing them. I love white linen trousers, a must for a summer holiday. I usually find them in Next or Primark (although these are thinner)
