Fashion Top Five: City-Appropriate Seersucker

May 6, 2008 by Rebekah

Seersucker has some very preppy connotations – mint juleps and nine irons, to name just two – but with modern cuts and a bit of restraint, it’s easy to make this pattern work in real life. Pair these pieces with solid white and perhaps a chunky bangle bracelet or two to channel classic summertime chic and avoid looking like a displaced, Derby spectator.

The cropped cut and green piping on Free People’s Seersucker Jacket ($128) keep the piece from being too serious.

This Isaac Mizrahi for Target Seersucker Halter Dress ($34.99) in brown and white instead of the classic light blue combines a flattering A-line cut with an adjustable halter top, so you can tie it to size.

We love the way the stripes on this cotton miniskirt ($15.80) alternate from horizontal to vertical; the effect is playful and perfect for weekends.

Chaiken’s Regatta Seersucker Dress ($396) is simple and sleek, and the tucked-and-folded front is reminiscent of some of our favorite laid-back frocks of the season.

These Cynthia Steffe Seersucker Sailor Trousers ($195) incorporate the nautical trend we’ve been seeing all over the place.
