Tips to Pull Off a Seersucker Suit

Few men have a tough time pulling off a seersucker suit. Made from a light crinkled fabric, usually cotton, Seersucker suits have an alternating vertical striped pattern between white and another color. Given below are few ways to wear this suit without coming off looking like a total nerd.
  • Opt for a color that won't make everyone stop, look at you, and throw on a pair of sunglasses. Men's seersucker suits are available in a range of colors striped with white such as red, peach, aqua, and pink. Choose these colors only if you have a deep desire to attract attention, no matter the kind. The best options are blue-and-white, cream, gray-and-white, or brown-and-white.
  • Prefer a shirt that goes well with the suit. White shirt or a light shirt that matches the suit would always be the best option.  Stay away from shirts with any pattern as they will clash with the already striped pattern on the suit. Instead of a wide collar, a shirt with a conservative collar is best.
  • Select a tie that isn't too much decorated. Yet again, overly-busy patterns will clash. Better choose solids or conservative patterns. Bow ties are fine too, but a regular neck tie is best if you wish to avoid the nerdy look.
  • Wearing a plain brown leather belt would be best option instead of that thick white one you were thinking of.
  • You can put on almost any shoe, from brown brogues for a fancier occasion to white or brown bucks. You can even wear tennis shoes to casual events if you are wearing your seersucker jacket with jeans.
