Suspender skirts are everywhere this season and we’ve been fighting the urge to get one since we know our restless ways won’t make for a good fit. If you’re as prone to fidgeting as we are, then the straps can be more of an encumbrance than a delight. But designer Richard Ruiz has figured out a way for those who do more than just pose all day to get the look without the hassle. His adorable trompe l’oeil silk satin dress creates a suspender look with clever black and white color-blocking. It’s like finding the perfect suspender skirt and a coordinating blouse, except the blouse won’t ever bunch up under your skirt. Having the whole look in one garment obviates the impossible calculus of proportions where you end up trying on one blouse after another trying to get your outfit just right. Best of all, less time fussing with your top means more time for picking out the right shoes. --ALISON COOL
