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.

Outfit details:

Blue half sleeve polo – Children’s Place
Plaid roll up pants – H&M
Plaid driver cap – H&M
Plaid slip on – GAP
Yellow suspenders – American Apparel
Peacoat – Target

I’m new to your blog as of today, and I just wanted to say WOW! What an adorable, styling little guy. I always feel like little boys get ripped off in the style department and girls have so many cute items… but you have totally changed my mind. Too cute!!!

What a cutie! Suspenders are great — the eldest wore them sometimes when he was about 10…wonder if the toddler would keep them on? V cute tho.
