Seersucker fabric is a light woven fabric renowned for its breathability and moisture-wicking properties. The texture of the seersucker weave helps keep the fabric off the skin, which adds to its breathability. This also inherently makes it a bit more wrinkle-resistant, and easier to pack up for summer traveling.
Seersucker has its origins in India and became very popular with the British because it was a great fabric option for warmer climates. It became a staple of fashion in the southern United States for the same reason.
When most people think of Seersucker, they think of the classic blue-and-white striped blazers. While this is the traditional look, many modern brands prefer a subtle check or a solid.
