Don't interpret the lack of posts as a sign that braces and suspenders are fading away. On the contrary! In fact, I saw a lady yesterday at the bank, wearing a white, open-sleeve blouse, tucked in to fitted, black dress pants. To complete the look, she wore narrow, black, Y-backed suspenders. She looked very clic. It was menswear but very feminine at the same time. My only comment would be that braces would have suited the outfit better than suspenders, but I give her full compliments.
The look is reminiscent of Jean Arthur's outfit in The Talk of the Town (1942) with Cary Grant and Ronald Colman. The blouse has been updated with cut sleeves, but the black pants and black suspenders are the same. Welcome back 1940s!
