Whether you’re a groom or groomsman, you want to look your absolute best on the big day. Your suit or tuxedo is, by far, the biggest choice you’ll make stylistically, but there are small details to consider, like suspenders, that can make or break the look.
Though designed for function, suspenders are one of those accents that can make a big statement (and yes, there will be opportunities to show them off, like when you remove your jacket to hit the dance floor or for that totally nonchalant jacket-tossed-over-your-shoulder pose for photos) whether you choose a sleek black or white style with polished hardware, a timeless pattern like herringbone or stripes, or a rich texture like silk or satin.
If suspenders are purely a pragmatic choice for you, take the understated route with a minimal style that coordinates with your suit (black, navy, or gray are often fail-safe). Then again, a subtle motif or leather accent may be the exact add-on you need for a skosh of texture.
From understated to slightly statement-making, ahead, our edit of the best suspenders for grooms and groomsmen.
