How to Wear Suspenders
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

Suspenders aren’t exactly on the forefront of fashion, but they can create a pretty snappy look when paired with the right pieces.  The key is to work with the tailored feel of the suspenders - but not so much that the outfit doesn’t have a sense of humor.  We’ve crafted a tongue-in-cheek look with suspenders that manages to evoke an air of urban sophistication.  Here’s how to get the look of sophistication in suspenders:

1.  Start with your base: a suspenders skirt (or pants) paired with a crisp button-down shirt.  Bonus points for a fun color or pattern.
2.  For flair, add a tailored cape over the fitted base.  The cape adds a dash of elegance to the outfit.
3.  Continue on with the sophisticated, tailored feel of the outfit with a structured handbag.  The tan bag pairs nicely with the blues in the outfit.
4.  Finish off the look with an accessory that adds a bit of fun to the outfit: a bright red bootie.  The cool weather bootie pairs nicely with the cape - and it adds a punch of color (and humor) to the entire look.
