Southern Belle Style: Glam Seersucker

GlamSeersuckerOne thing that I love about spring and summer in the South is seeing dapper men in seersucker suits. Seersucker fabric ( a name derived from Persian words that mean "milk and sugar") was invented in New Orleans as a hot weather alternative to heavy wool formal wear that was worn by U.S. Senate members in the early 1900s, and today Seersucker Thursday in June is still a light-hearted tradition among Senate members .  Paired with a white straw fedora and white dirty bucks, seersucker jackets and pants are the epitome of Southern swagger and glamor.  This outfit collage is a remix on the tradition that's just for us millennial Southern Belles. The metallic cap toe pump adds just enough futuristic edge while the lavender touches in the accessories keep the look delicate and feminine. These J.Crew seersucker Café capri pants also come in lilac ( I know these look grey, but they are actually navy) for an added twist on the Southern preppy favorite. I MUST have the lilac seersucker for summer. Those that know me know I am a purple fiend!
