Seersucker has all the must-haves when it comes to a summer fabric—lightweight, incredibly breathable, and packable—it’s no wonder it’s been a summer favorite since the 1920s. Here, find Fashion Fabrics Club’s 5 ways to transform the traditional fabric into modern looks for this season.

Embellished Tank

To add even more breezy appeal to the already airy fabric, try seersucker in a flowy tank top with your favorite pair of denim. To add a little flair, try adding an embellished hem like these whimsical tassels.

Cigarette Pants

It’s hard to wear tailored pieces in the summer heat, but with seersucker’s puckered texture, it keeps skin cool even if in a form-fitting piece. If you need to look professional in the hot summer sun, try a pair of cropped seersucker cigarette pants with a crisp cotton button-up.

Off-The-Shoulder Top

Using seersucker in the season’s beloved off-the-shoulder top tempers the piece’s inherently bohemian vibe and injects it with a little preppy-chic, making it perfect for all of summer’s daytime events on the social calendar.

Scalloped Skirt

An easy elastic-waisted mini is an essential piece in the summer arsenal—and when done up in seersucker, it has a much more polished appeal. For extra feminine edge, try using a scalloped-edge hem.

Lounge Pants

Wide-leg drawstring loungers are perfect for those dead-of-heat days when you want to keep your skin protected from the sun but still stay cool. While linen and cotton gauze immediately comes to mind for this piece, using a cool seersucker instead gives it a whole new, and much more modern, look.
