YELLOW IS PERFECT FOR A FELLOW
Few colors elicit as immediate a response as yellow. It’s variously associated with the sun, with all things cheery and happy, lazy/dazy vacations, boats and beaches, the first blooms of spring, and brighter days ahead. While it does have darker connotations - eg. Suck it up, buttercup! - its unsunny underbelly simply makes it more interesting and complex.
At first glance, it can appear to be a lot of work figuring out how to integrate yellow into your wardrobe in a way that it doesn’t end up wearing you. Which is why accessories like suspenders are magic - a small touch that brings a big style impact.
There are three easy ways to add yellow suspenders to your fashion life: with other shades and tones of yellow, for a monochromatic look; integrated into a tried-and-true color scheme; and as a dramatic accent - kind of like an exclamation point to end the sentence that is your style statement.
#1 YELLOW SUSPENDERS IN A MONOCHROME OUTFIT
You probably already wear more yellow than you realize - if you ever wear anything khaki-hued, you’re wearing a version of yellow. Whether toned down with white, to become a pastel or tint; with gray, to become a tone; or with black, to become a shade - it’s all still just a variation on the same thing: yellow. So an interesting way to add a yellow suspender to your look is with head-to-toe yellow and accents in “muddy” yellow, including tortoiseshell and tobacco. Plus, a suspender like our classic yellow Bumble suspender buttons-on, which automatically makes a regular khaki look less regular. If your khakis don’t have buttons for your suspenders, simply have your tailor add some on for you.
