Think beyond the 1920’s flapper girls, or the awful Wild Wild West. The most doable fashion trend this Spring is the fringe embellishment – whether you’re going casual or glam, this look will cover everything in between. Fringing comes in a wide range of fabrics too, such as silk, felt and even leather. Fringed embellishments played a huge part in New York Fashion Week last month – so if it’s any indication, fringing is back and here to stay for Spring.
Unleash your inner boho chic with this look! It’s no secret that fringing is a classic at music festivals, making it one of our favourite looks in the warmer seasons. Think singlets with fringed embellishments at the bottom, or even make do with a fringed kimono like this model here. No doubt will this trend have us channeling our inner Mary Kate Olsens.
Fringing on dresses? Yes please. It’s the perfect look for a lunch date or even just going to the shops. Casual fringing is what it’s all about – nothing too fancy, but chic enough for heads to turn. Think fringing at the bottom of a mid-length skirt, or at the end of your sleeve for added elegance.
Subtle embellishments are perfect for those who aren’t so keen on going all out. Opt for a tan fringed handbag, purse or even boots if you’re feeling bold. We’re loving this fringed bikini for Summer – if you don’t like the idea of everyday wear, then perhaps fringing exclusively for swimwear is the option for you!
We never thought fringing and formal went together, but they do now. Fringed gowns are drop dead gorgeous, and will definitely have you standing out from the crowd. Not sure about gowns? Try a chic fringed top with a pair of suit pants, or even a flirty cocktail dress for a luxe vibe.
