Seersucker Thursday



The official uniform of summer is here! It’s time to pull out your seersucker and stay cool in style. One of the best ways to beat the heat of the humid DC summers is to wear seersucker. Recently, I saw a friend wearing his seersucker pants and he looked perfectly preppy and cool, even on a humid evening. Then I started to think about Seersucker Thursday…

Seersucker takes over Capitol Hill in the summer with many members of Congress and their staffers joining the preppy fun with Seersucker Thursday. Read about how this fun DC tradition started here. Everyone’s in on the game for Seersucker Thursday, the tradition that crosses party lines.



Here's a great wardrobe option from J. Press



Keep reading to see who's wearing seersucker this summer on Capitol Hill.

  3. I love seersucker, especially a man in seersucker. I recently posted a picture of a young man at a wedding I went to a few weeks ago. I couldn't resist taking a picture of a total stranger!

  14. I love seersucker! When my husband and I got married, he and all of the groomsmen wore seersucker suits and pink bow ties that matched the bridesmaids dresses. It is a summer staple in the South!
