We talked about how much we loved the Mickey & Co. + Forever 21 Mickey Mouse suspenders a few months back. A recent episode of Pretty Little Liars put suspenders back on our radar. Just like Bambi and rosemaling, suspenders seem to be having a moment. So versatile, so functional: you can wear them up for a sort of menswear, nerdy-chic look to hold up your baggy boyfriend jeans, or wear them down as an accessory a la Spencer from PLL.
Here are some of our favorites we’ve found so far. Topman has classic cobalt blue suspenders that can easily be incorporated into your typical pencil skirt or jeans outfit. A little less versatile, a little more fun are the Mickey Mouse suspenders from Forever 21, which get bonus points for being reversible. Finally, in honor of Rapunzel, American Apparel has the perfect purple/magenta suspenders to add a bright touch to a more structured set of trousers.
