Kids Fashion Trend 2014: Suspenders
Since the kids’ wear is kind of a mini version of the adults’ fashion, so the suspenders siphoned to the toddlers wear and I have to admit they look really cute with various kids’ trousers. Moreover, the kids’ suspenders are one of the cheesy accessories that will be the hottest accessory trend in 2014 for children. The most popular suspenders are made of fabric or leather, worn over the shoulders and its goal is to hold up the pants. But today you find suspenders made of advanced materials like rayon, synthetic fiber, box cloth and tubed suiting cloth. Usually suspenders have X or Y shape at the back.
Suspenders or braces have quite a long history. First worn 300 years ago by factory workers, they became very popular in 1820, owing to Albert Thurston, whose company is still one of the best manufacturers of suspenders of England in its traditional way. In the mid of the nineteenth century suspenders were considered to be a part of the underwear since ladies had something similar in their wardrobe – garter belts. But later, as the garter belts were replaced with more functional and comfortable part of the wear, gentlemen stopped hiding their suspenders.
Types of Suspenders for Children
Manufacturers do not hold to strict and formal elements when it comes to the kids’ wear. When selecting suspenders for kids, you meet so much of various criteria. Vivid colors, buttons or clips, assorted lengths, different shapes. Selecting accessories for toddlers is a lot more fun than doing the same for adults.
In accordance with old English customs, the best suspenders are considered to be those attached to trousers with buttons only. Remember Daniel Craig in the role of James Bond in “Casino Royal” or Larry King who never appears without his black suspenders.
Two hundred years ago suspenders were worn without a belt, but the modern style does not have those strict requirements. If your child likes the belt and does not receive any objection wearing it with trendy suspenders, then why not? You may find special trousers that go with suspenders. These pants do not have belt loops, but have the attaching tabs for suspenders on either inner side of the trouser belt or outside.
Today suspenders may be worn in combination with jeans, shorts, various kinds of trousers both by girls and boys. Girls may wear suspenders even with skirts. Since today’s childrenwear fashion is all about eclectics, then underneath the suspenders you may wear various T-shirts of any color, shape and prints.
The latest and hottest trend is the combination of suspenders and bow ties. By the way, the latter is a different topic, but I’ll say just a few words. Bow tie – is another hot trend and unisex accessory in kids fashion for 2014.
