How to style: The light seersucker look for summer

The weather is getting better and the temperatures are starting to rise, which means it’s time for light, summer-friendly fabrics and textures. One fabric in particular should not be forgotten: seersucker. Read what you should know about this fabric and how to best showcase the seersucker suit in today’s blog post.

Seersucker – this is what distinguishes the fabric

Seersucker is a blended fabric that consists to a large extent of cotton. Its distinguishing feature is the crepe-like surface that can be clearly felt. Can’t imagine what it’s like? Why not take a look in your bedroom, because: Many summer bed linen items are made of seersucker. Why? Because of the uneven surface of the fabric, it never lies completely against the skin, so there is a high level of air circulation. This makes the material particularly light and comfortable to wear. Another plus: since it does not need to be ironed, seersucker is wonderfully easy to care for. So if you don’t want to sweat in summer but still want to be stylishly dressed, suits and jackets made of seersucker are the ideal companion.

Set in scene

You’ve been invited to a chic barbecue or birthday party and don’t know what to wear? This is where the seersucker suit or jacket comes into play. Because: It is particularly suitable for casual occasions, but you can also choose a seersucker suit for summer weddings without any problems. For business meetings, on the other hand, you should go for more classic alternatives.


Look 1:  Casual and relaxed in a  brown striped seersucker jacket. An orange cotton shirt is the perfect colourful eye-catcher. For trousers, you can go for a pair of light-coloured fabric trousers or chinos to pick up on the white of the jacket. Matching accessories such as sunglasses round off the summery look.

Look 2: The seersucker look – from head to toe. Our suit made of seersucker is wonderfully suitable for a chic appearance. The classic white shirt goes well with the light brown checked garment. This brings calm to the look. Perfectly chosen accessories like a white pocket square complete the outfit.

Look 3: Seersucker can also do colour – the plain look. If you want to make a fashion statement, the rust-red seersucker suit is just the right choice. So that it doesn’t become too uniform, you should choose a light-coloured top. Depending on how smart you want it to be, you can go for a cotton shirt or the classic shirt here. Of course, you can also use targeted accessories here.

Of course, it is also possible to wear the seersucker suits more casually, as in Look 2 and Look 3. So you can replace the matching trousers with light-coloured fabric or chinos for a more relaxed look.

Seersucker – a Must-have for the summer

As you can see, seersucker is an essential part of any summer wardrobe for a suit lover. Are you still looking for the right outfit? Then take a look here . We wish you lots of fun!

Probably one of the most popular materials for summer: linen. Whether it's trousers, a shirt or a jacket, you'll find such a garment in almost every summer wardrobe, and quite rightly so. But what makes linen so indispensable for summer and why should it not be missing from your wardrobe? We will answer these questions in today's blog post.
As already made clear in our last blog article, fashion and sustainability do not always go hand in hand. Especially not when it comes to fast fashion. Recently, the general rethinking in our society has brought the topic of the environment and sustainability into a new focus. People are more concerned and care more - but how can we shop more sustainably? Today's blog post deals with this question.
Trends chase trends, collection follows collection – new clothes are bought while old clothes are thrown away. The fast pace of today’s Fast Fashion industry has long since ensured that clothes are hardly given the appreciation they actually deserve. The issue of sustainability is also increasingly being pushed into the background. The Slow Fashion movement is strictly opposed to this development. We would like to use Earth Day on 22 April, with the motto “Your clothes make the man”, as an opportunity to focus on the topic of Slow Fashion.
