It's Back! The Accessory We Can't Wait To Start Wearing

You heard it here first, folks: suspenders are making a comeback. Don’t believe us? We understand this strappy accessory evokes memories of Urkel, A Clockwork Orange, or perhaps even Larry King, but we’ve spotted a fresh crop of stylish ladies (both on and off of the runway) proving you can wear suspenders without looking like a tragic nerd.

    Rodarte S/S 14

    Why We Love It: The Los Angeles-inspired runway was our catalyst to loving the reemergence of the suspender. Attached to high-slit skirts and embellished with silver studs, these suspenders are of an entirely inventive and bold caliber.

    Zoe Saldana

    Why We Love It: Saldana committed to a menswear-inspired suspenders look with a pair of Diesel Fayza Boyfriend Jeans ($328), a black blazer, and lace-up boots. Her Breton-stripe shirt balanced the otherwise tomboyish look.  shop.diesel.com

    Why We Love It: Designer Ricardo Tisci experimented with suspender motifs throughout Givenchy’s spring runway, incorporating gathered fabrics, plunging necklines, and a moody color scheme, giving a new approach to the classic piece.

    Street Style

    Why We Love It: This look screams Parisian chic. Why, you ask? The draped blazer, on top of the expertly layered tops tucked into the relaxed white denim, is c’est magnifique. To polish off the ensemble, this street styler added a pair of suspenders and grabbed for an envelope clutch for a unique finish.
