Summer will be here before we know it, so it's a good idea to get your summertime wardrobe in shape before the sun really starts making things sweltering. You won't always be able to wear cargo shorts or swim trunks, especially when you need to go to work. When the time comes to put on a pair of tailored pants, you'll want to have some of the best trousers for hot days in your future.
Berle has a variety of lightweight, breathable trousers for the hot days coming up. Let’s break down what you should look for in the best trousers for hot days.
Choosing the Material
You should always carefully consider material when selecting new trousers for hot weather. Generally, only a handful of fabric types are appropriate for hot and humid weather common during the summer months, including:
- Cotton. This is soft, breathable, and usually affordable. Cotton is great since it can help to absorb some of the moisture from your legs, preventing you from looking as sweaty as you would otherwise. Plus, cotton is one of the most comfortable materials you can find trousers made out of.
- Linen. This is made of a flax plant-based textile. Linen is arguably the best summertime material since it helps heat escape from your body. That said, linen is somewhat prone to wrinkling and it’s not as soft as 100% cotton trousers and shorts.
- Bamboo. This is derived from the plant of the same name. Bamboo is great for hot weather trousers since it's moisture-wicking and very temperature regulating. It also feels very soft. On the downside, bamboo pants and shorts are pretty pricey, so you’ll be hard-pressed to find trousers that don’t place a big burden on your wallet.
Color and Style
Next, you should consider the color and style the trousers or shorts come in. Ideally, you'll want trousers in colors like navy, blue, gray, beige, or brown. These are perfect for combining with masculine shirts and jackets, especially in workplace environments. Remember to pick trousers that go well with your available shirts and upperwear.
The Best Trousers for Hot Days
Not sure where to start your search for trousers for hot weather? Berle has everything you need, and more. In particular, we offer a collection of Charleston khakis made of washed poplin.
Washed Poplin Khakis
Whether you need pants for work, a semiformal event, or something fun like a party or summer wedding, our washed poplin Charleston khakis can get the job done and stay comfortable throughout. In a nutshell, these lightweight khakis are made of 100% cotton.
Why does this matter? Many poplin trousers are made from a heavy, potentially itchy fabric blend. Instead, Berle’s poplin trousers are always made with pure, lightweight cotton that’s breathable, comfortable, and won’t make your legs feel like they’re burning up in the hot sun.
On top of that, you can select the perfect trousers for your wardrobe, style, and personal preferences. We offer pleated and flat-front Charleston khakis made of quality poplin material. They're also available in either relaxed or traditional fits. Traditional fits are better for wearing to work, while relaxed fit trousers are ideal for lounging around the house or attending semi-formal events.
Washed Khaki Shorts
Are long-leg trousers still a bit too hot for comfort? In that case, why not try our washed poplin Charleston khaki shorts? Like the full-length trousers above, these Charleston khakis come made with 100% cotton poplin materials.
These shorts are designed for relaxation and comfort first and foremost thanks to their relaxed fit. With deep, on-seam side pockets and a watch pocket for added convenience, they’re perfect choices for men of all ages and all aesthetic tastes. You can pick up these shorts and a variety of sizes and colors.
It’s easier than ever to grab some pants for hot days in the weeks ahead. Berle makes it easy for you to put together a quality, comfortable wardrobe that works no matter the season. Check out our other collections today!
