How to wear suspenders - Tutorial

The suspender is a clothing accessory that has existed for at least 300 years, first appeared during the French Revolution, the current model (with clips) was invented in 1822, a year before the foundation of the Cappelleria Bacca.

You are probably thinking that this is an accessory that is a bit "out of fashion" and not very practical, why use elastic bands that pass over your shoulders, instead of a more practical belt?

Nothing could be more wrong, not only are they not outdated, but in some cases they are the only possible alternative to a classy dress or an amazing outfit.
