Fringes slapped on clothes or accessories have the magic power of looking trendy AND versatile. So they basically can go from music-festival-style to office-hours-look. And all the styles in between.
Fringe has been around for decades. Hello roaring '20s!! Later, the '70s brought the fringe back into the spotlight with a more bohemian-unglamorous-yet-incredibly-cool take.
Today, you can find fringe on pretty much everything, shoes, bags, tops, tees, skirts, dresses, necklaces, belts, bracelets, jackets, the options are endless!
So how to wear this trend? I like to think that the shoes set the tone for the whole look. While fringes can look posh, chic, glam, edgy, they will always have the bohemian vibe to them. So keeping them boho-chic à la 70s style is definitely one way to go about it. Look for fringe on suede jackets, shirts and slouchy handbags. And to complete such a look be sure to rock bed-hair, long hair, middle part, round shades, gladiator sandals or moto boots, and maybe even a fur vest (but maybe not in summer).
I would however proceed with a little bit of caution when incorporating fringe into a look as this trend can easily read too costume-y if you take it too far. I would suggest pairing your fringe piece with something modern or minimalist to offset any potential rodeo vibes.
