30 for 30: Day11 – Braced up
Once a functional accessory is today’s style statement. Along with it’s mid century style counterpart, the fedoras, the suspenders are back on the circuit.
Ideally, pairing it with skinny jeans and an crew neck tee will take this look a notch up and keep it trendy, however like all trend setters, my style icon had other plans. He decided that they would look best with this combination of his blue polo tee and plaid roll up pants. So here we are creating a new look completely styled by the little man himself.
They did their rounds in the neo-preppy circles and also dipped into the fashion circles delivering a punk rock vibe. They key to wearing them right without looking costumey is to keep the rest of the outfit simple. That will ensure that you don’t look like you just stepped right out from the sets of Casablanca.
If your feeling adventurous try out these patterned ones at rainbow connection.
It’s a great accessory to have in your kids wardrobe. For one it definitely is not something you will see on everyone, also it can easily take an outfit from ordinary to exciting in a second. With the holidays around, I would say its a great addition to spruce up that dinner outfit.
