Just when you thought you’d reached style saturation with denim trends…. Enter Suspender Jeans. Yes, you read that right and they’re exactly as you imagine.
The RIDLEY high waist skinny style features denim suspender detailing to show off your thighs, and retail at £38.
If you have great legs then here at Zips It Up, we say it’s a thumbs up. Well done ASOS. There’s also a tall version for the Elle MacPhersons amongst us.
But ASOS are not the only ones to pay homage this bizarre style. My go-to High Street favourite Topshop have also got in on the act with their MOTO Suspender Mom Jeans in indigo. But they’re not cheap, at £85.
Now those are two words that shouldn’t go together – ‘Suspenders’ and ‘Mom Jeans’. They’re just not as sexy as ASOS’ version.
In one way, the suspender style is handy if you’re indecisive about whether to wear full-length jeans or shorts – problem solved with two-in-one.
They scream early Noughties to me, and if you’re ever stuck for a fancy dress idea, look no further than Christina Aguilera in her 2002 Dirrty video.
Sorry, but from a practical and wearable point of view, unfortunately, I can’t see them taking off.
