Fringe Benefits

 

When you think of fringe do you cringe? Are your first thoughts about suede country western jackets paired with riding boots? Or maybe 80’s grunge?? How about those suede moccasin boots that rotate in and out of style, and turn almost any outfit into a boho costume? Speaking of costumes… I know my mind wanders to 70’s stage glam. I'm talking over the top....Diana Ross… Cher… Iconic. Ahhh yes!!

Either way, each time fringe reinvents itself it brings along a bit of sass that is dramatic and interesting. This season, fringe is shown in bold colored accessories, trim on tribals or simply black and white for the classy element. As shown time and time again, fringe can add a bit of glitz and glamour or a cool edge depending on your choices. So try it on and add a hint of fun to your wardrobe. I have included a few looks below for a visual.

Enjoy! 

 

This look is extremely easy to recreate. Pair any bright fringe clutch with an evening jacket and add a graphic tee. If you aren't quite so daring a plain black tank works as well. Date Night approved! 

 

As I have mentioned in previous blogs being a walking canvas is in. By incorporating brushstrokes in a pop of color, this fringe look is effortlessly taken up a notch. The orange in this dress adds an eclectic edge to flow with the subtle fringe on the wedge. Perfect for casual Friday at work.

A basic white tee and denim short is a summer staple. What most don't realize is that this look can really can be jazzed up or down easily with accessories. Below, the fringe bag is one that deserves to be adored.  This stand out piece adds a funky and fun vibe. Perfect for any weekend. 

Though we may want to act like a beach bum doesn't mean we have to look like one. The selection of fringed kimonos this season ensure your beach style is easy breezy.  For a bit of extra coverage add a pair of denim shorts or wide peg pants to the look.
