In bright colors, they add as much interest to an outfit as a vest, but without the weight or bulk. And if you think they're for office wear only, think again. There are kiddie versions for preschoolers and black and metallic numbers for teens with attitude. Even car-pool moms can give their busy-day denim skirts a little spin by adding suspenders.
