Everyone is talking about chambray for spring and summer, but let’s not forget to invite seersucker to the party.
Seersucker was invented in the early 1900s and was worn by men in the south as a lightweight alternative to wool suits. Remember, there was no air conditioning back then! The thin cotton fabric got its name from the Persian words meaning “milk and sugar.”
Seersucker has a wrinkled appearance due to the way the fabric is woven. This actually prevents the fabric from sticking to your skin, making it perfect for wearing in warm weather. Another plus is that you don’t have to iron it! I couldn’t think of a better fabric to include in your spring and summer wardrobe.
