As the cooler weather approaches, I am drawn to inspiration from the street style pictures from the recent fashion weeks in the northern hemisphere. One particular style note on my radar was the increase in women wearing suspenders. Suspenders have pretty much always been a wardrobe staple for men. They’ve stood the test of time because well, they hold up their suit pants! These days they are also an accessory, but for us women, rather than being a necessity because we have hips to hold up our pants, suspenders are a fashion accessory or even an affectation. I think I went through a stage of stealing my brother’s suspenders (which he probably stole from our Dad) because I remember wearing them with pants, jeans or shorts for a brief period of time in my teens. I liked them. They were fun to wear.
So my question is this. Suspenders: would you, have you or do you wear them?
Have a great week xo
