Suspenders are a wardrobe staple that never goes out of style. Suspenders were invented by Albert Thurston in 1820 to accommodate trousers that didn’t work with a belt. Makes sense, right? You need to hold up your pants, but a belt doesn’t work with a higher-cut pair of pants. Thus, the suspender was born.
Men have long utilized button suspenders with their suits. However, the suspender has evolved over the years from a functional piece to a snappy style selection. When a man slips off his suit jacket to reveal a crisp dress shirt highlighted by an eye-catching necktie and a rocking pair of silver or gray suspenders, the ensemble definitely gets your attention. He stands out from the crowd.
Not just for the office
Yet suspenders aren’t just for suits or the office. The 1980s brought us many forgettable fashions, like the regrettable mullet, but suspenders aren’t one of them. Who could forget Robin Williams as Mork sporting a pair of rainbow suspenders and jeans? Suspenders became cool back in the day, and they still are.
Of course, you need to select the right style of suspender to reflect the setting. Silk suspenders in quieter tones like gray or a paisley pattern will look best in the workplace. However, if you are going out for the evening and want to get playful, there are several styles including glitter, prints, and novelty suspenders that will have people admiring your outfit. For a really special look go for handwoven silk limited edition suspenders in a silvery pattern – including Reel Time to pay tribute to the silver screen, May I Have This Dance? to show off your jazzy style or Bubbles for an effervescent look!
If you are searching for the right pair of suspenders to spark your workplace style, you can’t go wrong with silver suspenders. They complement a variety of suit colors like black, gray, or blue. Silver suspenders will add color and will also play off the hues in a stylish matching necktie.
New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to sparkle in silver glitter suspenders!Ladies can wear silver suspenders, too. Silver glams up any outfit whether it’s a necklace or a pair of suspenders. These days even silver hair is in. So, why not go silver?
