3 Ways to Wear: Polo Suspender Top

There´s a reason why our Suspender Tops are selling like hot cakes – they are versatile! Yes, you can hide the garter details under your skirt with stockings or wear it simply hiding under your trousers as a regular top but that´s only half of the fun. It´s time you showed off your suspenders! Here are a few ideas how to wear the top this week.


This day look has a very strong rock´n´roll edge. Spice the Top up with other attention seeking detailing – leather jacket, printed trousers, cool tank boots – and your suspenders will make you look like a bad-ass rock star.

Meet Kristiina

Tell us a little bit about your personal style.
I love comfortable jeans, a simple tank top and a nice pair of boots worn with feminine pieces of semi-precious stones like rose quartz, amethyst etc. My long hair also plays a big part in my look and gives a subtle bohemian touch to my personal style.

What kind of things/people inspire you?
I’m inspired by a work well done, passionate people and mostly by my sweet little baby boy.

We know that you have a cat tattoo on your ankle – what does it symbolize for you?
I find cats very mystical and independent. For me they symbolize freedom and sensuality.

What´s your favourite piece from the Kriss Soonik collections? Why?
I love the turtle neck piece because it’s like second skin – the fabric is so soft and comfortable.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
Never go against your intuition just to avoid saying ‘no’ or hurting someone. The only one you can hurt by ignoring your inner guidance is yourself.

3 reasons to love the Kristel Polo Suspender T-shirt

It´s not very often that we dedicate one full post to an item from our collections but the Kristel Polo Suspender T-shirt, and Kristel Polo Suspender Tank Top, deserve it.

It took me a couple of seasons to get the design finalised. I had been flirting with the idea for ages but wanted to be sure that when I started redesigning such a classic as is the pique polo t-shirt, then it had to become perfect. It started with finding the right fabric, getting the details, and of course the overall look, right. New Yorkers quickly named the style “preppy sexy”. Apparently it´s very hard to do…
And looking back, launching it for SS14, the timing couldn´t be better with the sports luxe trend causing a stir in the fashion world.

So here are 3 reasons why I have fallen head over heels for the t-shirt and how you could incorporate it into your daily wardrobe:

1. Fun
The suspender details give an old classic a completely new look. The puff-sleeves balance the sexiness levels, so the result feels more cool and sporty than in-your-face sexy. Wear it on top of your skirt or jeans for a fun, fabulous look.

2. Practical
If you don´t dare to wear the suspenders outside, then you can always wear them hidden under you skirt or jeans without stockings. What others will see is a gorgeous, feminine, well-cut polo t-shirt with pearl buttons and puffy sleeves.

3. Sexy
Or you can wear the top under your skirt with stockings bringing a power touch to the traditional polo t-shirt. No one except you knows what´s hidden under your skirt. And it´s completely up to the wearer to reveal it at the right time. Or not…
