I am sure you’ all know what suspenders/ braces are, for the sake of those who don’t know what they are, suspenders are elastic straps made of fabric or leather that are designed to hold up a pair of trousers in place of a belt. They are worn over the shoulders and back and attached to the top of the trousers. When it comes to wearing suspenders you should not wear them with a belt together. Keep the suspenders/braces in neutral colours so they won’t clash with what you pair them with – navy or grey are your safest bet. If you wear coloured braces pair then you will need to keep the rest of the outfit monochromatic so as not to clash the suspenders.
