A lot of guys want to expand their fashion sense, but they aren’t sure where to start. The problem is that fashion trends morph and warp so often and quickly that it’s hard to keep up.
Many men feel as if they might create some sort of fashion disaster that will get them ridiculed for such a decision.
Worry not gentlemene, because the fashion industry is designed to work with new and growing concepts. Something that you think might not work for you might actually be highly recognizable and very easy to match with your body type or personality. One such example is deciding to match suspenders with a pair of jeans without a coat or jacket to conceal the suspenders.
Most men are familiar with this look since it has been around since about the time suspenders were invented, but many automatically assume it is beyond their ability to wear such an outfit. The look is fairly casual, but with the right coordination, it can be quite striking. It’s basically the same idea with any other outfit. You know that only certain belts go with certain pants, and it’s the same with suspenders. Creating the optimal look is about finding the pieces that perfectly compliment each other. Most modern takes on the aesthetic use dark jeans such as black or navy, but stone-washed denim is a popular option as well. What it really comes down to is the cultivation of a single look from many specific parts.
Once you’ve made the decision to attempt this classic appearance, you might want to consider throwing some printed suspenders into the mix. Solid-color suspenders are fine to start off with, but the look is meant to showcase the suspenders, not hide them as they are used to. Instead, find suspenders with printed designs that accent the best parts of the outfit. Perhaps you have a favorite pair of jeans with a strange mixture of tones, and you’d like an abstract design for your suspenders to evenly match the overall hue of the jeans. There are dozens of way to build a memorable outfit you’ll want to wear again and again.
Sizing the suspenders is the last aspect of the outfit, but it’s quite critical. It’s better to avoid wearing suspenders with pants that don’t really need them unless you have the body type to tighten them up without creating any issues with your mobility, which is rare. The authenticity of the aesthetic is key.
