I have been trying
to clean my OneDrive for the past week. Trying to delete all the unnecessary
items I have kept over the years and trying to keep the important ones, the
While cleaning up, I
realized I save a lot of stuff.. I mean a lot! Without even thinking of what
they are for. I either take a snippet, or just save photos that inspire me.
Looking back at all the photos has been really interesting and they really have
inspired me. So I deleted a few, organized the rest into different folders. Out
of all of this one thing stood out - apparently there was a time in which I was
suspenders makes sense - I still do like them. I believe they are extremely
fashionable on men but also on women.
There are certain Do's and Don'ts when it comes to suspenders but I
would hate to generalize..
Below are some
inspirations - from my past. I am not sure where I got most of them (sad face)

This is a tricky one. I think it depends on ones personal style as with
everything else. Personally I don't think there is a right or wrong with
this? As a men - you reserve the right to have belt hoops on your pants if
you want to.. And if you feel like it one day you should be able to wear
your suspenders with that awesome suit, right?
Belt? OK this one I can be
strict.. Belt is a method for keeping your pants up - other than looking
stylish and good. Suspenders are a method to keep your pants up. So you
probably don't need 2 accessories working for the same mission, right? So
if you chose to go with suspenders, then no belt is needed! That is a
definite NO from me.
I know I said suspenders are
supposed to be subtle.. But to be honest.. If you don't feel like wearing
your jacket, but want to keep it more casual, then just do it. Because I
think if your shirt is the right fit, along with that nice pant, added
suspenders would only make you look more stylish.. So flaunt it if you
