Suspenders are one trend that I am actually not seeing on the fashion scene right now... but I think they definitely need to make more of an appearance! They are slimming and sexy and a nice dash of masculine to the feminine shape. In my opinion, they are one of the best additions to any outfit. 

The trick is to make sure the strap is thin to give the allusion of a thinner silhouette.  Embellishments like a brace {see example here} or a bright, fun hue {see example here} can't hurt either!

Seriously, I am obsessed. Look at these other looks for more suspender inspiration!

What do you guys think about suspenders? Sexy? Dorky?


  1. They are definitely 'em!

  2. I think they're super cool and I agree- they need to make an appearance in a big way!

  3. Love it, very geek chic if you will:)

  4. I don't know if I'm hip enough to pull them off, but they're definitely fun :-)

  5. Too cute. Dorky can be sexy too ;)

  6. ok you've just made me totally want suspenders! lol!

  7. I've never wanted a pair before, but now I do!

  9. I love how suspenders look on other people, I'm always too scared to actually try them. Not sure if I can pull it off.


    & thank you for the "link love" I really appricate it!

  10. I always love suspenders when they style them in J.Crew or Anthro mags, but I'm skeptical that I could pull them off myself!

  11. Suspenders are pretty popular in Portland and I love them. We have a bit of a relaxed but semi-casual style. They're so cute!

  13. I don't own a single pair and I'm not the biggest fan, but I feel like if you wore them the right way they'd be pretty easy to pull off. Just need a pair of massive glasses and some oxfords!
