Seersucker is practically synonymous with summer in the South, and in honor of National Seersucker Day we’re rounding up some of our favorite lightweight finds that won’t break the bank. Although the sweet nature of this heat-beating fabric can be hard to pull off as a grown woman, with a little attention to cut, color, and styling, you can keep things modern and fresh.
Cargo Jacket: The relaxed fit of this utilitarian topper almost makes it edgy. Gap, $75
Slip-on sneakers: Worn on your feet, daisies and stripes look more artsy than dainty. Keds, $50
Shirtdress: A black, throw-on-and-go dress provides a good entry point for the seersucker adverse—all the comforts of the cloth without the pastel primness that usually accompanies it. Gap, $50
A-line skirt: Most seersucker skirts are pencil-shaped, but a swingy number adds a sassy touch. Keep the top loose for a slightly undone look. Loft, $59.50
