Love at First Sight: Engineered Garments’ Seersucker Jacket
What: Prep cool
Why: Now that the warm weather is finally upon us, the hunt is on for pieces that work in a transitional way—unfussy, lightweight layering items that can pull together an outfit and serve as a cover-up on a cool spring night. This jacket from Engineered Garments fits the bill perfectly. Its summery seersucker and just-tailored-enough cut put a preppy polish on the season’s go-to cutoffs and bare, baggy tanks, and I can’t help but think that a little bottom-of-the-tote-bag rumpling will only add to the jacket’s can-do Yankee charm.
Where: $345, at Pas de Deux, 328 E. 11th St., (212) 475-0075.
