Fringe, as a fashion trend at least, is no longer on the fringe. Fringe is front and center and seriously chic on sweaters, handbags, boots, blouses, everything possible.
If fringe makes you think of Pocahontas or Great Gatsby-style flapper dresses, give your brain an update. Today, fringe is a refreshing option that is fun, edgy, and stylish with a luxe vibe. It’s luxurious because it’s purely ornamental. Fringe can also be tactile and sexy: there’s nothing quite like the sensuous feel of long fringe running through your fingers.
I’m thinking that this is one trend that will stay a while. Elegant tasseled earrings have a certain classic feel to them. I predict that women will continue to adore the fringed handbags and scarves we’re seeing in the stores these days. Fringed tops and ponchos have a universality that can work for anyone - any and all body shapes.
What I like about this do-able trend:
- You can go all out, over-the-top fringed, or wear it in an understated way.
- Motion! Fringe sways and moves.
- Fringe works on nearly everything: dresses, blouses, handbags, scarves, shoes, jewelry.
- You can add a few fringe pieces to your wardrobe and you have an instant update.
