Show Off your Suspenders Despite Those Winter Layers

The temperatures are plummeting, and you’ve mastered the art of layering for yet another winter, but between your dress shirt, vest, sweater and jacket, no one can see your cool new pair of suspenders. Fear not, you can still stay warm without having to hide your favorite accessory.

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.
