When I was a kid, I had several skirts with suspenders. I remember wearing plaid if not dark blue suspender skirts to my kindergarten classes as a uniform and I also had a few pairs of shorts with suspenders. I used to think that it´s simply a style for kids. When fifteen years later I rediscovered this style, it brought me back many childhood memories. I accumulated several suspender belts which I wore with denim shorts and jeans.
This classic borrowed-from-men style is simply interesting. When you wear it, you feel like having that guts to broadcast to the world that indeed, you´ve got guts! Here are eight ways to fabulously rock suspenders for women.
Go chic in wide leg pants with suspender
Wide legged pants are always neat and polished, they make me think of Victoria Beckham. If they´re highwaist, you automatically tuck in your top. Next time you pull off your beloved high waist flare pants, add suspenders for a whole new spin.
Revive that vintage style suspender
For girls who love vintage style, this is good news. A pair of vintage high waist jeans or shorts would look complete with suspenders. The ensemble speaks divine if pulled together with a denim jacket.
Tap your suspended jeans with killer shoes
When the entire outfit is rugged, a great pair of shoes will surely twist it around. Remember, while you can wear vintage-inspired outfits, past is meant to stay in the past. There´s no point looking like entirely 70s or 80s if you´re not living exactly in that age or era. Update a vintage look with modern shoes.
Keep things chic and feminine
If it´s rare, then it´s a gem. I´m referring to skirts with suspenders that are made for grown up girls meant to make her look polished. You can actually wear this look to work.
Dare the suit pants with suspender
Are you starting to feel bored with your pants suit? Do you wonder how to create a new look with this ready to wear set? Well, simply add suspenders in the same color as your suit, then accessorize with a tie or a bow scarf.
Feel free to play with colors
There´s nothing more playful than opting for a colored suspender skirt and teaming it with a complementary colored top and shoes. Your suspenders need not match your skirt, it´s even more fun if you can have them patterned.
Choose the right shorts with suspenders
There are many ways to wear suspender shorts, the key is knowing what look do youexactly want to achieve. Is it a chic monochrome? Try this. Is it a cute street look with colored denim shorts, patterned shirt, and tailored blazer? Try this. Or is it a´la Jessica Alba´s hot casual look? Try suspender denim cutoffs.
Match your suspenders with a plaid jacket
We normally match our suspenders with the bottom, if not clash it. This time around, try matching your suspenders with your jacket a´la Jane Aldrifge. Dig for plaid jackets and corduroy pants.
