A very necessary pair of crisp, white jeans with cuffed hems

They are available in sizes 10–30.

Promising review:
“I’d been wanting/debating about buying white pants for summer. These are fantastic! I pulled them on and they fit perfectly and looked great. This never happens for me. They are very true to size. I am 5’5 and the length was perfect, with the cuff right around the ankle on me. If I wanted to look exactly as the photo on the website, I could just fold up the cuff one more time. But I like them the way they are.” — ro12356789

A sneaky slitted pair of trousers that are essentially like the pants version of a skort

They are available in sizes S–4XL and 15 colors/prints — not all styles available in all sizes.

Promising review:
“If you are on the fence with buying these pants…just do it! You won’t regret it. They are SO comfortable, and the slits on the sides make them breathable to be able to wear in the summer. I bought the white, and they are NOT see-through. Wearing flat sandals and the pants a little past my belly button; they fell right at my ankle. You can dress them up or down.” — lnarthur

An ultra-classy pair of cropped pants that’ll take you from a casual day of strolling to a nice dinner out

Psst: The tie-waist belt is removable, so you can also pair these with your own belt like in the first photo! They are available in sizes S–XL and 19 colors/patterns.

Promising review: “I was really surprised by these. I was looking for comfortable cotton, high-waisted pants to wear around the house while working from home. These pants are a great price for the quality, in my opinion. I’ve spent double the price on other high-waisted pants that I have to constantly steam to keep wrinkles out of after washing and wearing for 10 minutes. The key for these pants is the cotton material they are made of. It makes them breathable and comfortable for all-day wear. They don’t wrinkle up or require ironing/steaming after you wash if you just hang them to dry. The high waist is lovely, and I think I am going to buy another pair.” — Wolfvswolf

Promising review:
“This denim is soft and the fit is roomy, with a comfortable elastic waist. I love the distressed look and the denim is lightweight, which I find very wearable and comfortable. I ordered one size up from what I normally wear, and I decided that after reading the comments others have written here about fit. I’m very happy with my purchase and plan on buying another pair in the lighter denim shade.” — Bnjs196

“The most comfortable pants I’ve ever worn. I don’t even know why I would bother wearing anything else. Fits great, silky soft, lightweight, and breathable. Perfect summer pants when it’s a tiny bit cool for shorts but too warm for yoga pants or jeans. Purple is just as vibrant as the pictures.” — tatianna

A relaxed pair of cargo capri pants that’ll become your new go-tos

They are available in sizes 4–18 and four colors.

Promising review:
“Super comfortable, fit great at the waist and not too tight otherwise. I get overheated easily and these are nice and airy for wearing outside — going to the zoo or playing out back with my kids. I like the side pockets, I used them to hold seed packets whole planting in the garden this weekend. I liked them so much I immediately ordered two more colors, I plan to wear them all summer.” — Cait

And, a versatile pair of Levi’s capris reviewers say have a nice amount of comfy stretch

They are available in sizes 2–28 and five styles.

Promising review:
“These fit perfect, look perfect, and feel perfect. They are just the right weight for summer, a little thinner but still stretchy and durable and look like real denim, unlike some stretchy jeans. I got the ‘Blue Ice’ and it’s the perfect casual jeans color. The hems are stitched to stay up and fall in the exact right place for capri pants. I wish all my pants fit as well as these. I can’t say enough nice things about them and will probably order more colors.” — Shae

A sporty pair of cargo joggers you’ll want to wear on every warm weather hike

They are available in sizes XS–3XL and 12 colors.

Promising review:
“These joggers fit the bill for me. I needed lightweight pants to wear while working in the yard. We live in the heavily wooded boondocks of Florida, and working in the yard without getting eaten up by mosquitoes and other insects is a challenge. These pants are lightweight and breathable enough to wear when it’s warm, and at the same time, help to ward off the bug bites.” — Hello
