Few colors of clothing and accessories say “money” like gray - it’s sophisticated, muted and always appropriate. “According to color psychology,” explains California-based stylist Nicole Busch of Share Some Style, gray is “elegant and formal. Gray is a chameleon,” she continues. “It conforms, especially when paired with other colors.” She suggests pairings that feature an aristocratic tone like camel. “Nothing says rich and polished like that combination.”
The great thing about suspenders in blue is that it’s a hue that already keys in with all that blue you already wear every day in the form of denim: jeans, trousers, jackets and shirts. So it’s an easy accessory to incorporate into your existing wardrobe with little muss or fuss - although, done right, blue suspenders can certainly cause a fashion fuss...for all the right reasons.
Here are some stylish ways to integrate blue suspenders into your look.
First things first: like the always-awesome Jonah Hill, you too can wear purple suspenders. No, really. Since they’re an uncommon sight, you’ll stand out (in a good way), telling others how you dare to be badass and bold, sartorially-speaking.
As much as we love green, especially in small sizes boasting big denominations and accompanied by a portrait of Ben Franklin, it is a tricky hue to wear. Its associations with St. Patrick’s Day goofiness looms...to which we say: by all means, party like a leprechaun, just don’t dress like one. There’s also the specter of crochety old geezers in terrible green pants terrorizing golf-courses the world over.
Even if Greed isn’t Good, Suspenders are Still Stellar!
There is something about women wearing suspenders that is instantly classic and sexy. Below is some inspiration to help you create your next look.
