STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Preppy in Seersucker

If you don’t have any idea what seersucker is that’s okay. A lot of people don’t realize that seersucker is actually a technique that uses a puckering technique to create a striped pattern. However, what you should know is seersucker is a classic pattern for menswear during the summer. Now when something is to be considered timeless and classic you should always consider how to make it your own. The outfit created by this Fashionisto showcases how he modernized a classic wardrobe staple that works with his personal style.

Seersucker is actually a fairly old pattern that has been used for hundreds of years. But many young prep students starting to wear seersucker around college campuses, which would eventually make seersucker a classic preppy staple. For men, seersucker suits are extremely popular during the summer. One way to change that look is creating a more modern preppy look. In order to find the perfect seersucker pants you should find tailored pants.

Many modern men may actually consider wearing a blazer to be dressed up. But always remember that ages ago casual-wear for men was a relaxed type of jacket that was often called a morning jacket or waistcoat. There are many different casual blazer options out there. I would suggest an unconstructed cotton blazer that has more of a relaxed classic tailoring.

You can complete a modern look by finding a modern T-shirt. For example, V-necks are a great option to create a more updated trendy outfit. Another great option for summer are canvas sneakers. To complete his preppy outfit he wears canvas Sperry Top-Siders boat shoes.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK?: “I always try to make sure that I find tailored blazers and trousers. Remember, fit is everything. You don’t have spend a lot to look great. The fit should just be loose enough while still looking tailored. Any menswear look will be ruined if a blazer is too big or tight. If you can’t find the right fit, find a tailor”.
