Linen Pants in Every Inseam Length

Spring Break is coming soon (or already here, for some of you!) and we have linen pants in every inseam length! Whether you need a petite inseam length of 26″ or a tall inseam length of 37″, or something in-between, we’ve got you covered! All of these linen pants (and more) are available now at Search By Inseam. Linen pants are synonymous with spring and summer, but cargo pants are a hot new trend for spring, too. Check out our most recent blog post with the top 10 best cargo pants on the market right now. Without further ado, here are our top picks for linen pants this spring:

  1. First up, we’ll start with our tall women’s linen pants from the Elevated Closet. These 35″ and 37″ inseam linen blend pants come in navy or olive green, and I actually have both! πŸ™‚ I can vouch for how comfortable they are. I love the drape, flow, pockets and length. I have a 35″ inseam in bootcut jeans, but with linen pants, there’s enough of a drape that you can go 1-2″ shorter on the inseam length. I actually took these to Nordstrom for hemming, which is unusual for me! πŸ˜‰ These tall linen pants come in regular sizes and plus sizes up to 3XL.

  2. Secondly, I know a lot of people are wanting to try the linen jogger trend this spring. These Athleta Retreat Linen Joggers are fresh and fun. They come in a petite inseam length of 26″, a regular inseam length of 28″ and a tall inseam length of 31″. Remember, jogger style pants are like skinny jeans: they only come to your ankle. This means that the inseam length will be shorter than you’d need for a bootcut jean or any full length jean.

  3. Thirdly, a relaxed wide leg linen pant is always in fashion. These Caslon Wide Leg Pull-On Linen Blend Pants come in a petite inseam length of 28″ or a regular inseam length of 30″. They come in three colors: olive, navy, and black. Because of their relaxed fit and low drape, you’ll need a much shorter inseam length than you would with a pair of more form-fitting jeans.

  4. Fourth on the list of linen pants in every length is the 33″ inseam Roxy Oceanside Linen Blend Beach Pant. These pants have a lower rise and drawstring waist, and come in 4 colors. They are available in navy, black, stone, and white. If you normally need a tall 34″ inseam in jeans, try these on for size. The drape is lower than a jean, and you’ll most likely be wearing flats with this casual linen pant, so the length might be perfect for you.

  5. Number 5 is the beautiful coral Lina Straight Linen Pant from Banana Republic. More tailored than the previous styles, these linen pants are perfect for the office or dressing up. Petite inseams are 28.5″, regular inseams are 30.5″, and long inseams are 33.5″. Besides coral, they also come in black and natural.

  6. Another pair of linen pants by Athleta makes the list at #6. These Retreat Wide Leg Linen Pants come in five colors: pink, black, violet, undyed, and calla lily. The regular 30″ inseam comes in sizes XXS-3X. The tall inseam length is 33″ and the petite inseam length is 28″. These women’s linen pants have a unique split hem on the inside ankle for added breathability.

Review of Old Navy Tall Linen Pants

As I mentioned in my post, What to Pack for a Tropical Vacation Using Only Your Carry-on, I bought these Old Navy Tall Linen Pants for my upcoming trip to the South Pacific. I actually bought two pairs because I love linen pants. πŸ™‚ Here’s my review of Old Navy Tall Linen PantsΒ in green. Since I’m packing light and only taking one pair of pants, these didn’t make the cut for trip. I’ll only be taking the black pair because they go with all the tops I’m packing.

OK. First of all, these pants are a linen and rayon blend and they sit low on the waist. They have a drawstring waist and a relaxed fit. I love linen pants and have quite a few colors already. Black, white, tan, and a blue and white stripe pair are already hanging in my closet. I decided to try this sage green and am happy I did! It’s a great neutral and goes well with blue (as pictured), orange, yellow, pink, white and black.

The most noteworthy thing about these pants is the inseam length listed is incorrect! I ordered a tall small and the Old Navy tall size chart says these pants should have a 36″ inseam. Yet when I got them, I measured the inseam length at only 33.5 inches. What a difference! This length actually works well for me. I am 6′ tall and normally need a 35″ inseam for bootcut jeans and pants, but these are a loose drapey fit so a shorter inseam works well.

Why is this? When measuring the inseam length you need for a pair of pants, you measure from the crotch seam to the hem. In a drapey pair of pants like these linen pants, the crotch seam is not tight to your body like a pair of fitted pants. Rather, it drapes down several inches and as a result, the inseam length needed is much shorter than normal. Also, it is important to keep in mind the type of shoe you will most often wear with pants when determining the length of inseam you’ll need. Due to the fact that I’ll be wearing these with flat sandals, I didn’t need to account for extra heel height.

Buy linen pants in the exact length you need right now at Linen pants won’t be available much longer because it’s getting late in the season. The best selection is in early to late spring.
