Mixing fabrics and colors will ensure you stand out at this Friday’s event and all summer long! Pair the traditional pattern with something completely unexpected, like this silk high-low skirt. Seersucker often comes in more muted colors, allowing a bold bottom to pop in contrast. When trying this style, stick with a fitted top and flowing skirt to add to the power of contrast! Fashion: Jolie & Elizabeth
Fit for Figure Fabulousness
Don’t feel flattered in your more traditional seersucker styles? Try a silhouette that cinches at the waist, stripes vertically and hits right above the knee. This style allows you to enjoy the trend without loosing your figure. The pockets and buttons make it chic enough to dress up for an event, but pockets allow for ease in dressing down. Figure flattering and versatile! Fashion: Katybelle
Splash of Seersucker
Can’t fully embrace a head to toe Seersucker ensemble? Don’t worry! Our friends at NolaCouture have a great assortment of seersucker accessories. Often men go right for the bow tie to add a splash of seersucker, but this year we recommend seersucker belts as the best way to dabble with the pattern! Look for something with a leather trim like this belt to keep the look more formal and less fraternity. Fashion: NolaCouture
Professional Pattern Play
Transitioning from the office to the sartorial social? Rock the playful pattern in a work appropriate wide leg cut. This silhouette is chic, professional and on point with spring’s wide leg trends. Pair this look with sky high heels for a super long illusion! Fashion: Jolie & Elizabeth
Camel color accessories made a major resurgence in menswear this year, but you don’t have to limit their pairings to a sleek navy suit! This versatile shoe, belt and watch shade pairs well for a younger, bolder take on the seersucker style. Look for a bright or dark blue seersucker stripe when matching and keep the accessories sleek and simple like this look. Fashion: Haspel
