Merry and Bright: 7 Ways to Wear Suspenders to a Holiday Party

Make waves at the watercooler by rocking suspenders at your office holiday party! Is the evil era of the ugly sweater party at an end yet? Bring back classy fashion and chic décor, please! Revolution starts with you, fashion-forward party-goer! Dress the festive up to fête and class up the joint, would ya? Here are 7 Ways to Wear Suspenders at Your Holiday Party:
  1. Fake a pinafore! Pinafores are like skirt overalls, typically worn over blouse or sweater. Pair a high-waisted plaid skirt with a pair of accent-colored skinny suspenders, over a tucked-in sweater or blouse. Extra points if the shirt is ruffled and accented with a short, silk scarf.
  2. Don’t like the little swing in your step? Opt for a pencil skirt instead for a little 1940s va-va-voom. You can’t go wrong with navy blue threads, white heels, and bright red lipstick.
  3. Little secret, gentlemen… bowties and suspenders make for a dashing duo. Camel-colored leather shoes, tan slacks, navy suspenders, light blue button-up shirt, and a navy bowtie. Roll the sleeves up above your elbows, keeping the roll tight, yet messy. Like you were too busy being awesome to worry about clean creases.
  4. Want to keep the realness in winter? Keep your boots on! A rugged pair of boots teamed with pressed jeans or khakis, light-knit sweater, and a pair of boldly colored or patterned suspenders will do the trick.
  5. Don’t just experiment with patterns; remember there are all sorts of great materials as well. Leather and horsehair and silk, oh my! Not to mention X- or Y-backed styles, and all the different attachments.
  6. Did you know that there are undergarment suspenders as well? Worn between and undershirt and a dress shirt, these secret suspenders give you all the function of suspenders without any of the fashion. Great for the untucked-look without the hassle of a belt.
  7. Just wear the goofy suspenders with your ugly Christmas sweater. SuspenderStore has a wide selection of novelty patterns for every holiday party occasion. If you’re going to do it, you might as well do it right!
