Seersucker fabric, once reserved for the suiting of southern gentlemen, has become a tried-and-true summer fashion fabric favorite due to its light weight, durability and breathability. This summer, seersucker is getting a modern makeover, being incorporated into a variety of different garments and accessories from swimwear, to bow ties, to children’s wear.

Here is a breakdown of some contemporary designs that incorporate traditional seersucker in some not-so-traditional ways.
