3 Fun Suspenders for Kids by Fashion Designer Violeta
We love how more parents are helping their little ones step outside the traditional mold of children’s fashion by giving them the opportunity to try new types of clothing and accessories with their outfits. And there are few accessories that make a child’s outfit more endearing than a pair of suspenders. They’re cute, quirky, and fun and pair perfectly with a variety of designer kids’ clothing. Whether you’ve got little boys, girls, or both, suspenders add the ultimate pop of personality to their outfits.
One of our favorite kids’ fashion designers—Violeta—is embracing the fashion world’s love of children’s fashion suspenders in a big way. Violeta children’s clothes are a charming mash-up of old fashioned and modern styles that any kid would love. And there are plenty of casual or dressier options for every occasion similar to what you’d find in a fancy kids’ clothing boutique. But the star of Violeta clothing is, of course, her incorporating suspenders in many different ways.
To give you an idea of just how adorable suspenders can be, here are a few of our favorite Violeta fashions that include this classic look.
First up are these Chambray Star Baby Suspender Shorts. Honestly, we didn’t think babies could possibly be any cuter until we saw these shorts—and now we want to get them for every baby we know. The delicate yellow stars offer just enough color on the chambray fabric. And when paired with a white onesie, the shorts and baby suspenders combination will take center stage. You’ll have a dapper gentleman—or lady—in the making with these suspender shorts.
For older girls who gravitate towards clothing with more traditional shapes—even verging on preppy—this Grey Dot Flair Suspender Skirt is a perfect choice. The simple yet attractive polka dot pattern incorporates just enough color to give the skirt some glamour. And the button-on suspenders make it appear a little on the more formal side. Pair it with a white long sleeve tee and Oxford shoes for a dressier school look. Or dress it down with a solid color tee and sneakers for a cute weekend shopping outfit.
In need of something for your little boy that’s both dressy and comfortable? These Grey Corduroy Suspender Pants will be just what you were looking for. The fabric is soft—not stiff like other children’s dress pants can be—and the grey color will match just about any color shirt you’d pair it with. We recommend a button up shirt in a pastel color. And, of course, the focal point of these pants are the suspenders. They add so much charm you’ll want to dress up your little one every day—whether you have a formal occasion to go to or not.
Rules for Wearing Suspenders
If you’re a fan of the kids’ suspenders trend, we’ve compiled a list of our top suspenders “rules” for buying separate child or toddler suspenders instead of ones that are attached. That being said, we know kids will be kids and if they’re dead set on wearing them with their sweatpants and rain boots it’ll still be equally as adorable. These are just guidelines you can choose to follow if and when appropriate.
- Let the suspenders be the star of the outfit or conceal them under a sweater or jacket if you’re going to add other accessories (too many bells and whistles can overwhelm an outfit)
- Stick to solid colors or simple patterns under suspenders
- Ensure that the suspenders aren’t too tight—if the pants are above the belly button they probably need adjusting (or a bigger size)
- Match the colors of the suspenders (and their clips, buttons, etc.) to the rest of the outfit—for example, don’t pair navy blue with black
- Know whether you need button or clip suspenders—clips are more casual and buttons are more formal
