If you are planning on a vacation by the ocean, a pair of white or beige beach pants should probably be included in your suitcase. They are the perfect thing to wear on evenings that are a little too cool for shorts. Of course, they don’t have to be worn only at the beach. Any non-formal outdoor setting will do.
Here’s an example of a pair that have a cool, casual look, but they seem like they might be a bit thin. I prefer a thicker fabric:

One thing to consider when you are wearing beach pants is the type of footwear you should be wearing. White beach pants and a pair of sandals are a classic combo.
