Whoa, August already, can you believe the summer’s almost over? Only one month left to deck out your bright colors, summer fabrics, and bold prints. We thought we’d squeeze in a last summer post on the sailor trend before it’s time to bring the ship back home.
Our favorite way to set sail is with Seersucker! Seersucker shorts on a warm day, seersucker jacket for a summer wedding, seersucker pants for a picnic…what’s with the leech-alluding name and what’s so great about it?
Seersucker comes from Persian “shir o shekar,” which means milk and sugar. The sweet phrase probably refers to the bumpy texture of the fabric as a result of the natural wrinkling of the all-cotton fabric. Because it’s all cotton, it’s durable for multiple washes (perfect for those beach days) and light for great air circulation.
The classic weave is blue and white but beige, grey, and green can also look great, depending on the occasion. As a plus, seersucker is a look for both men and women (:
Thought this would be cute to share ~ Seersucker Thursday in the Senate office in 2006.
