There’s no denying that suspenders make a style statement. They’re retro-cool, edgy, and still just unique enough in today’s fashion landscape to make you stand out. But did you know that the way you wear your suspenders could determine the type of statement you make?
To Belt … Or Not to Belt?
This is one of the most controversial issues – OK, the only controversial issue – in the wonderful world of suspenders. Does wearing suspenders mean you should forgo your usual belt? Not necessarily.
By combining the two, you’ll show the world that you’re not afraid to mix accessories for the sake of fashion (and function, too). However, the majority of stylists do recommend letting your suspenders stand on their own.
Another daring move is to go to the other extreme – lose that belt and the belt loops that go with it! If you plan on wearing your suspenders religiously, simply remove the belt loops from your pants. You’ll be amazed at how clean and stylish you look, and you’ll be sure to receive compliments on your GQ-esque fashion choice.
To Clip … Or Not to Clip?
Ah, another age-old question. Do you wear clip-on or button-on suspenders? Well, the answer depends on the outfit and the occasion.
Clip-on suspenders are great for casual wear. They’re easy to put on and take off, and they work with nearly every type of pant. When you wear clip suspenders, you give off an easygoing, cool vibe. However, for any formal event requiring a suit, clip suspenders may make the wrong style statement. You’ll look clueless about style, and the fine teeth in the clips could very likely ruin your pants.
In this situation, button-style suspenders are the only way to go. You’ll look sophisticated, elegant, and very put together.
To Suspender … Or Not to Suspender?
