I can’t be the only one in the world who sometimes finds themselves in a what-to-wear rut. It’s the oldest tale in the book really – a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear.
I confess that I tend to forget about the power of accessories. A simple necklace or scarf or belt can transform an outfit within seconds, and I am committed to reintroducing fun accessories for everyday wear.
Sometimes, the accessory can be the centerpiece of an outfit. Especially if said accessory is a pair of suspenders and/or a beret.
This is my “Oui, oui Pearis” shirt. Which I love. I own three or four dorky shirts such as this one and they’re some of my favorite scraps of cotton to pull out when my wardrobe needs some inspiration.
In case you can’t tell, the gentleman pear is wearing a beret too. Twinkies.
Suspenders really add a touch of class. They say, “I’m dapper. And my pants won’t be falling down today.”
I think the only thing left to do is dine al fresco at a Parisian (or Pear-isan?) café and smoke a pipe. ‘Tis the rule for all who sport a beret-and-suspenders look.
Would you wear suspenders? What is your favorite way to accessorize?
