First of all, there’s no rule that says suspenders can’t be worn with sweaters. In fact, one of the more popular winter styles includes a dress shirt worn under a tailored cashmere or wool sweater topped with a pair of thin, braided suspenders. Since the suspenders will be the focal point of your outfit, you can really have some fun choosing from a variety of colors and sizes. If you’re looking for an elegant look, a grey or khaki sweater with skinny black leather suspenders is always a good choice, and can be worn with a pair of wool slacks, dress pants or even jeans, if you’re going for a more casual look.
Suspenders are the perfect accessory for women wearing a turtleneck and a duster. A wide pair of black button suspenders turn a typical combination into a chic outfit that works well for day or night. Men can pull off the same look with a sports coat or cardigan. You can also wear a classic white thermal with a pair of black or blue suspenders for a casual feel.
Another hot look that has been recently making waves includes wearing suspenders on top of a classic tailored vest. You have plenty of options – a dark shirt and matching vest always looks good with a pair of brown leather suspenders, or dress up with a blue-and-white checkered shirt, a navy vest and a contrasting pair of suspenders, like a burgundy or hunter green.
