I will say, on the record, that seersucker is a wonderful fabric. This is despite the fact that many of my acquaintances seem to think the fabric is reserved for “complete douchebags.” (Their words, not mine.) I am positive my love of seersucker dates back to my childhood when my mother would tell me how it was such a great lightweight option for summer. No joke. Of course, this is the same Lacoste-wearing woman who dressed me in countless adorable sundresses, so her feelings toward the fabric fit well.
In celebration of my trip to the deep south, I figured a tribute/post to seersucker was in order. The past weekend I was in J. Crew and this seersucker suit was calling to me. I had to rationalize that neither the capri pants nor bermuda shorts were very appropriate for a work setting. (As a rule, I prefer a skirt suit.)
Although they did lure me back in with their St. Barth’s seersucker bag. (Also a possible post-graduation vaca spot? Hmmm.) I wish it came in more colors than just the light blue but oh well. Come on J. Crew, be nice to me!
In terms of all things preppy, Lilly is always a good, safe choice. (I apologize to all those who despise the pink and green brand, I still like it.) These pink seersucker sandals make me want to kick back on a shady porch with a tall mimosa. Ahh, delish!
Since summer is just around the corner, you may be on the lookout for a new bikini. Given the theme, this one is also (gasp!) in seersucker as well. The Juicy Couture bikini has blue and white seersucker with brown piping. Prepare to be the cutest girl at your next beach party. Or maybe just the cutest girl laying out in your backyard, they both work!
If you are looking for inexpensive options, Isaac Mizrahi makes some seersucker pieces for Target.
Happy seersucker-lovin’ shopping y’all!
