Bring a bit of edge to that grandpa (or grandma) sweater vest we all have by adding some edgy and possibly weapon-grade chain link suspenders by Dsquared for their Fall 2008 collection.
I couldn’t locate where to purchase these (or to even gain a price point) as of yet, but I’m assuming they will be hitting the $300+ mark which automatically takes me out of the running.
Still, one can make these babies easily enough. I would attempt using braces from an old pair procured from Value Village, and attach them via a large opening clasp found at most craft outlets.
This look would work amazing with full skirts; maybe even tulle to take away something potentially over feminine and give it some attitude. Somehow I can see these falling off easily or getting to be a pain on the shoulders; though the phrase ‘no pain, no gain’ comes to mind. We’ll see how it goes.
