Brian Dales braces
Along with the bow tie, braces are the most underestimated sartorial accessory nowadays. If we should classify them in a category, they could be halfway between the grandpa’s old-fashioned accessory and the preppy one. I would recommend you to try to use braces according to the latter option. Actually, a bad taste combination can happen so easily, then prefer some plain shirts and darker trousers with those striped braces. But never dare matching them with a pair of sneakers… one can’t argue with elegance.
