Three Great Looking Summer Outfits Using Seersucker Suits
Seersucker is the ultimate summer fabric. This lightweight and very “breathable” weave was first made popular during the British Colonial period, especially in warm weather British India. Seersucker eventually made it across the big pond by the late 19th century – where it became a popular textile in the south. Initially it was considered a poor man’s clothing choice, but this eventually shifted, and by the 1920s it became a popular clothing piece even among the affluent. Today seersucker is a must have fabric for men who often attend summer/warm-weather dressy functions. To give the classic seersucker suit a “fresh” look, we picked out three of our favorites found on some of our favorite style blogs.
Above is a perfect example of a classic seersucker suit combination. The classic blue and white colors are perfectly complemented with a solid blue necktie and matching blue pocket square. The brown belt complements the horn buttons, and the white dress shirt underlines the classic and timeless look. Image found on: http://giantbeard.tumblr.com
Pairing seersucker with bow tie and straw hat is the epitome of the southern gentleman style. The man on the left chose a double breasted cut that nicely complements his body type. The suit on the left is a 3-piece style. The pink color is another great alternative to the classic light blue.
Seersucker can be worn for anyone’s style preference. For those appreciating a trendy/fashion-forward look, this example might just serve as inspiration to wear seersucker for the next summer wedding you are attending. The double breasted cut is nicely tailored to fit this slim body type. The tattersall check shirt adds contrast while the bright tangerine orange necktie adds a pop of color. The penny loafers (sans socks) are a nice choice – perfect for the warm summer day. Image found on: http://iqfashion.tumblr.com/
