When I think "braces", I first think of the metal contraption fixed onto my teeth. Then thinking of the other sort, it conjures up images of middle aged men who still wear braces to hold their trousers up; particularly a past teacher of mine.
But braces have graced the catwalk this season in collections such as Marc by Marc Jacobs, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Sonia Rykiel, fitting in with last year's androgynous trend. Model of the moment Agyness Deyn seems to be a fan of braces as well; I like the contrast between the red braces and blue trousers. I also spotted a girl on Face Hunter wearing the same stripy skirt I bought in H&M last week. I'll be trying out this trend in the form of my new skirt soon - and I won't even be thinking of my old teacher!
