BonjourMika1990 Posted July 23, 2007 Share Posted July 23, 2007 ON SUSPENDERS... just thought i'd share it with you... hopfully with my presentation tomorrow in class, i'll convert people onto mikaism lol... who'll be able to resist?! Suspenders Suspenders or braces as they are called in Europe are in the pre peak phase of being accepted into the fashion world. They first appeared during the early 20th century and were dawned by older men in society. Now, suspenders have become a trademark accessory for people wanting to achieve a unique and quirky flare. Women in the 80â€™s, for instance, paired this accessory with skirts and even wore them like their boyfriends under blazers. Larry King, in every decade, has been known for his trademark set of suspenders. Now a days however, he is not the only one. In Europe especially, â€œbracesâ€ are on the rise. British pop sensation MIKA is responsible for the catapulting popularity of this accessory. His trademark in the beginning of his career was what got him noticed by people all over the globe. He is known for pairing colorful suspenders with skinny brightly colored pants. In this way, it is obvious that those who wear suspenders are not afraid of being noticed. Currently, this trend is meant mainly as a playful means of self expression. However, most recently they have made their way onto high fashion runways making it impossible to resist their quirky appeal. In the seasons to come, suspenders may not reach staple item status, but they will continue to be a favorite among the brave fashion forward thinkers.
