What Is Seersucker?
When you know what seersucker is, styling it becomes easier. Because of its lightweight and breathable fabric, seersucker is worn traditionally during hot weather. Although many people associate seersucker with bright stripes, it also comes available in solid prints. The term “seersucker” refers to the puckered, flat-line pattern of the fabric.
It is neither overly casual nor strictly professional, making it one of the most versatile fabrics to add to your summer wardrobe. Best of all, because of its design, seersucker naturally maintains its shape, meaning you won’t need to worry about ironing it regularly.
How to Style Your Seersucker Jacket
Here are a few ways to style your seersucker jacket:
For business casual summer style, pair your seersucker jacket with seersucker pants to create a classic suit. A seersucker suit is also a great look for more casual summertime weddings. First, choose a pair of pants that match your jacket pattern and color. From here, opt for an Oxford button-up shirt in either a white or light pastel hue. Brown dress shoes like double monks and a matching belt are always a safe bet. Complete your look with a solid-colored, standard butterfly bowtie.
Linen pants are another summer staple. Because of their lightweight design, pairing them with a seersucker jacket makes perfect sense. If you’re styling a traditional, blue striped seersucker jacket, we recommend choosing pants in lighter shades, such as cream or light tan. From here, choose a white or light-colored dress shirt. As a general rule of thumb, opt for a shirt that is lighter in color than your trousers. To complete your look, wear a pair of brown tassel loafers and a brown leather watch. Adding a bow tie or pocket scarf is optional.
Charleston Khaki Pants
For a smart-casual look, wear your seersucker jacket with a timeless pair of Charleston khakis. You can keep this look simple by choosing your seersucker jacket in beige stripe and pairing it with classic-colored, tan khakis. Opt for a fully tucked white buttoned shirt and a light-colored pocket scarf. Remember, brown dress shoes with a matching belt and watch typically style well with all seersucker looks!
