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.
Black and White
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.
Creating a White Suspenders Outfit
Draw attention to white suspenders by pairing white suspenders 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.
Want to wear a necktie with your suspenders? You can go for a snazzy look by pairing a nice looking button-down black shirt with white suspenders and a white bow tie. The bow tie adds another pop of white contrast to your outfit.
A tie isn’t needed, however, unless you’re dressing up for a special occasion. 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.
What about off-white suspenders? This color is less bright than a true white, which means that it has a warmer tone. Lighter off-white suspenders can be worn with black but deeper shades may best be worn with complementary darker neutrals such as beige, tan and brown.
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. In the case of off-white suspenders, they can be worn with a white top or cream-colored top.
Classic Black Suspenders Outfit
Black suspenders, white shirt and all style! Create a timeless, classic look by pairing black suspenders with a white shirt. This is a color combination that looks flattering on just about everyone. The top can be a white button-down shirt, crop top, blouse or T-shirt — it all looks great!
Another favorite of those who regularly wear suspenders is the combination of black suspenders with a red shirt or top. Red represents passion and power, and this outfit attracts attention in a good way.
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.
Switch things up entirely with black and white stripe or tan and ivory stripe patterns. These white-stripe combos blend well with white, off-white or black shirt colors.
