From bikers to cowboys, there is a reason everyone loves fringe. It’s chic, transformative and always in style. This long-layered fabric adds both movement and dimension to any ensemble. No matter what your preferences are, there is always a way to pull off this textured piece – whether its a full garment or a simple accessory. It’s all about the styling, ladies. The key to successfully pulling of this trend is to tone down the rest of our outfit, and let the fringe take the reins.
Here are six ways to add movement to your outfit with fringe:
1. Biker chic
A great way to wear fringe is to pair it with other textures. Let’s start with the standard leather jacket. By incorporating fringe on a traditionally tougher material, the look instantly exudes a more bohemian vibe. This is a great way to tone down the look of your outfit without making it boring. Additionally, texture is a simple and classic way to give your ensemble a little extra oomph.
2. Southern feels
Channel your Southern goddess with a colorful, lightweight poncho or kimono. If you’re new to this craze, start simple with Monroe and Main’s Crochet Poncho, Crochet Fringe Duster or Faux Suede Fringe Vest. For a work-appropriate getup, pair the poncho with cropped dress pants and wedge heels. If you’re going shopping with your girlfriends, throw the stylish vest over a casual T-shirt and jeans. If you have a hot date planned, slip the fringe duster over one of your flattering dresses.
3. Tribal trends
Another successful way to pull off a fringe getup is through pattered garments. This is definitely a more riskier option seeing as you are combining two strong fashion statements. You can do it – we have faith. If you aren’t quite sure about mixing and matching these two trends, perhaps opt for a garment that has a combination of both. For instance, try the Tribal Beat Fringe Skirt. It’s unique, exotic and shows off a little bit of skin, as the fringe cuts off just above the knee. Pair it with a fitted camisole, add a jean jacket, slip on some sandals and you’ve got the perfect look.
4. Vibrant vibes
To make your fringe items stand out, look for the trend in gorgeous, vibrant colors. Hey, nothing can turn a few heads quite like a pair of cobalt heels adorned with fringe. Going bold is indeed bold, but it’s a great way to make a high-end fashion statement. If loud shoes are a bit too eccentric for you, start small by wearing statement necklaces embellished with fringe details.
5. Textured toes
Dancing around with a little texture on your toes – whether you’re wearing fringe booties, wedges or gladiator sandals – is always fun. Fringe accents exude a carefree vibe, as you can dress this look up or down for any season. In fact, fringe trim looks gorgeous on a pair of shoes and completely speaks for itself. Be sure to keep the rest of your accessories to a minimum, and let those stylish fringe booties do the talking. And by talking we mean walking.
6. Timeless totes
Keep it clutch by throwing a funky, fringy bag over your shoulder before you step out the door. Your fringe purse is timeless – it can be worn with any outfit, on any occasion. It’s the perfect fashion statement and it’s simple, too! So if you’re still testing out the flow of the fringe, going with a simple handbag is a great way to start. After all, this will be everything you need no matter the season.
