Add Suspenders To Your Formal Style!

Written by Amanda Saffer February 28, 2020

We’re here to help guys perfect their formal style through timeless suits, high quality accessories, and style advice.

Here is a quick guide to the do’s and don’ts for wearing prom suspenders:

  1. NEVER wear suspenders with a belt. You don’t wear gloves and mittens at the same time, right? Belts and suspenders are worn for the same reason: to keep your pants up!
  2. Vest or suspenders, but not both. Suspenders are an accessory you will want to show off! 
  3. Suspenders should fall straight from your shoulders to your waist. If you see      / \ or \ / happening, readjust.
  4. Skinny suspenders are more casual. Wide suspenders are more formal.
  5. Suspenders with clips are more casual while suspenders with buttons are more formal. If your pants don’t have buttons, the prom suspenders in our collection come with a little sewing kit to add your own.
If you are looking to add a little something extra to your prom style, suspenders are a fun and personal touch that will make your look memorable. Show us your complete outfit by tagging us on instagram @promguyxo
