From Southern Charm To City Fresh

Pucker Up

White bucks, a large mason jar of sweet tea and summer Sundays in the South are what seersucker suits bring to mind. That beautifully puckered, lightweight cotton suit is more than just a throwback to the days of the Great Gatsby. It’s highly functional and can unexpectedly play double-duty as a work and weekend suit.

The post features two ways to style the traditional blue & white colorway of the seersucker suit — one for the office and one for the weekend. Hopefully, it’ll inspire you to pull yours out of the closet.

Summer Business

To answer your burning question, yes, you can wear a seersucker suit to the office. However; there a few rules to help you pull this off and not look like you’re headed to Easter Sunday Service.

Style Tips

  • Start with tailoring. Seersucker suits are often way too boxy and wide all over. A slimmer jacket and tapered trouser will make all the difference
  • Ditch the white shirt and opt for an Oxford blue or light denim version. A white shirt is too stark of a contrast
  • No more light madras plaid ties. An navy or brown tie in a silk knit or texture cotton will give this look the office appeal that it needs
  • Leave the white bucks for a garden party. A dark brown shoes in leather or suede, preferably an Oxford lace-up is more office appropriate

Take It To The Streets

Even though seersucker is a casual fabric, it’s almost only styled in a formally. It’s often the summer wedding go to suit too. So, break the rules completely and pair it with the most casual items you can find — a t-shirt/tank and sneakers. Of course, we understand, this is not a rookie move — so here’s a few tips to help you execute this look:

Style Tips

  • Start with a classic, yet, simple sneaker. A navy sneaker grounds this look and adds a subtle contrast
  • Pairing a large striped t-shirt or tank is a smart way of adding dimension to the thin stripes of suit. Plus, its a cool way to add a “graphic” design without going the rock band t-shirt route
  • Add a solid woven belt to break up all the stripe patterns and to complement all the textures
