I bought a pair of black linen trousers on impulse last year. But I can't come up with good coordination. I don't want to make them closet queen. Any advice would be appreciated.

I'd wear a white cotton v-neck t-shirt or polo shirt. Maybe a light tan, linen buttondown.

I think they'd look a little better when faded.

A light gray shirt, too. Maybe something reddish, such as pink. It doesn't have to be a solid color. If you mean "trousers" as opposed to chinos, then a tee shirt probably won't look right.
