From the first moment you laid eyes on white suspenders, you made up your mind that you want a pair. And, why not? They’re bright and bold in a subtle way that draws attention to your outfit. Now all you need is a few suggestions about how to get the most out of suspenders featuring this basic color. Keep reading this short fashion guide for creative fashion ideas.
When you want to make a bold statement with your color choices, but still want to maintain a touch of sophistication, choose black and white. This color duo works great for casual and dressy looks. Draw attention to white suspenders by pairing them with a black dress shirt or black T-shirt. If the weather is warm enough, ladies can opt for a black tube top. Black pants or jeans extend the dark clothing background, making suspenders pop.
A tie isn’t needed, unless you’re dressing up for a special occasion, and for those situations a white tie works best. If you’re a bit adventurous, tie a bright red bandana around your neck and attach white suspenders to dark-hued blue jeans for fun. A vintage-look cap ups the coolness factor.
White on White
There’s no fashion rule that says you can’t wear white suspenders with white shirts, so feel free to do it. Imagine wearing a crisp white button-down shirt with a white or black bow tie. The addition of similar colored suspenders adds a touch of class when worn underneath a tux or suit jacket.
Blue is another color that works nicely with white suspenders, and you can choose the shades of blue that look good on you. One idea is to wear these suspenders with a solid light or medium blue dress shirt, navy blue tie and dark blue jeans or navy slacks. You can add pizzazz with a vintage style hat. For a relaxed country look, choose a long-sleeve denim shirt and pair with tan pants. Or, go completely hipster and wear thin suspenders half on and half off with a dark-colored long-sleeve T-shirt paired with olive jeans or khakis.
