I know seersucker isn’t a southern California thing, but I love it. How can a girl not! Seersucker comes in just about every color (blue, green, red, yellow, pink). I prefer to stick to the standard pale blue. Theory even produced burnt orange seersucker capri’s in 2004 (very cute).
Though I do believe you should dress for beach days and summer events according to the style of the coastal community your in, seersucker has become more popular and widely accepted. It is OK to wear it outside of the South.
Boys can sport seersucker too (and we girls sure love it when they do). Fabulous Dallasites such as Mr. Jenkins and Mr. Schmid always sport the preppy look and the ladies love it.
