Typically associated with being uncomfortable and slightly risqué, suspender belts are enjoying something of a sartorial comeback this season. And it’s not just petite, twenty-something’s who are opting to ditch their traditional undies in exchange for sexy suspender belts, either! With some careful consideration about what works for your style and body shape, suspender belts really can work for everyone.
