Who says that you can’t wear pants in the summer? In fact, there’s no better time to rock a sleek pair of slacks than when the weather is warmer. We’re not the only ones that feel this way! Popular clothing brands always launch fun and inventive new pant styles this time of year, each featuring trendy elements that will elevate your summer wardrobe.

Here are some of the pants trends that will be replacing denim jeans this summer:

1. Paper Bag Pants 

These tie-front pants are perfect for those who want versatile and effortlessly stylish pieces. Pair these gorgeous pants with your favorite blouse and your new sandals and you’ve got yourself a look!

2. Button-Up Trousers 

Buttons are going to have a major moment this summer. Expect to see trousers with chic button detailing everywhere this season–and don’t be surprised if they end up in your closet, too!

3. Wide-Leg Pants 

Jeans are cute, but they can be very restrictive and trap in a lot of unwanted heat–which is exactly what you don’t want for summer. Try a trendy pair of wide-leg pants instead! They offer your legs enough breathing room with their flowy design and lightweight texture, while also helping you look super cute and put-together.

4. Suit Trousers 

Menswear was a huge trend for winter and spring, so it’s no surprise that menswear-inspired suit trousers are going to be all the rage this summer. This contemporary and modern look will pair well with everything in your closet and help you make a major fashion statement.

Now that you know what’s in, check out some of the best pants that embody these amazing summer trends:
