When you don’t want to wear shorts and are tired of wearing skirts and dresses, a flowy pair of wide-leg pants is where it’s at! While the thought of pants in the 90-degree heat might make you twinge, the right pair of pants can actually be more cooling than no pants at all — seriously!

Instead of your thighs sticking to each other, loose pants — made of a lightweight and airy material — can create a barrier that keeps each leg dry. They also bring some airflow to your legs by trapping wind. Shorts and mini skirts can’t do that!

If you want a versatile pair of pants to wear with all your favorite tank tops this summer, check out our top picks below! They’re all loose, comfy and extra cooling. Happy styling!

1. Classy gal: A tie waist and sleek material give these pants a European vibe . . . what more could we ask for? Grab them in one of 10 luxe colors — originally $26, now $22!

2. Cute cargo: We can’t believe these pants are 40% off! The cargo material is made of rayon, lyocell and nylon, so you bet they’re light — originally $35, now $21!

3. Vacation mode: If you’re not on a vacation in Greece, you’ll look like you are when you step out in these sophisticated wide-leg pants. At 4.8 out of five stars, we say they’re worth the splurge — $65!

4. Ankle crop: The relaxed fit is designed to flatter all body types. These pants are made with a linen blend, giving them a delicate and structured look — originally $50, now $35!

5. Pretty pleated: Something about pleated material kicks up the elegance factor. A drawstring waist with silver hardware adds to the expensive look — $19!

6. Luxe linen: Beachy and chic, you’ll want to wear these pants every single day with every top in your closet — guaranteed — $35!

7. Not so denim: If “denim” makes you think of heavy jeans, these pants will make you rethink it all. We love the striped pattern — originally $35, now $28!

8. To the floor: Ultra-stretchy is an understatement with these floor-length trousers. A polyester and spandex blend makes them breathable, skin-friendly and comfy — $30!
