Braces are back. Maybe you know them as suspenders … but a yung’n can say braces too. Not so long ago, in 1983, the movie  Wall Street secured braces a spot in design dignitaries’  closets, emancipating the accessory from octogenarians and the AARP demographic. And with  Wall Street 2   looming in next year’s cinema lineup, we can expect braces to be a 2010 fashion highlight.   Peter Tsihlias, the overlord of braces in 1983, is still at it, with over 2000 designs on the market and more to come as the trend gains momentum in the coming year. So yank up those knickers and fasten them in place with a trendy pair of braces. (--Antonio Reis)
