When summer’s really doing its thing and the temperature’s are cranked to a broil, the right pair of linen shorts will be the only layer keeping you from completely melting away. Wearing any pair of billowy bottoms should feel like cracking open a window and letting the breeze waft through. But linen shorts are more like a walk-in fridge for your thighs, an A/C-chilled microclimate that offers some much-needed respite from those brutal July days. If the linen shorts you’re picturing right now resemble grain sack with pockets, we get it. But the supremely chill versions we’re talking about here have evolved beyond their stale origins. Nowadays, they come in more shades than barley and with the type of wild-style prints and embellishments that’ll help you thrive—not just survive—the swelter. Whether you’re after a certified short-short, a baggy-ass cargo short, or a neon-soaked Bermuda short, there’s a silhouette worthy of a spot in your rotation. These are our favorites.
