Which means ditching the thick leather belt for something breezier. There are plenty of options out there—from the surcingle to the Southern Hemisphere favorite faja—so we took the liberty of rounding up the best on the market this season.

Head to Toe: Seersucker

  • Najib Benouar

Seersucker

Around Derby weekend, the seersucker suit gets all the attention.

So, in the event you’d like to outfit another part of your body with seersucker—say, your neck, or your feet—we’ve gone ahead and found enough gear to swathe you from head to toe in the legendarily cooling fabric. Now, we’re not saying you should try wearing every single piece here at once...

To show you what we’re talking about, we’ve rounded up a dozen of the finest examples of spring neckwear on the market right now.
