One of the hottest trends in the coming months is about to be fringe. Seen on the runways at Fashion Week and worn by some of the trendiest celebrities, there’s no doubt that it’ll be all over store racks this fall. Fringe is the perfect transitional look that takes outfits to the next level. Here are a few different aesthetics you can channel with your favorite fringe staples. What do you like to pair with your favorite pieces?
When most people think of fringe, they remember those suede jackets that were in style in the 1970s. Well, if you held on to yours, you’ll be happy to know they’re back! This classic Southwestern look is returning with a bang. Try pairing a fringe jacket or vest with cowgirl boots for women or some turquoise jewelry. It’s a casual look that’s sure to turn heads and have everyone asking where you got your outfit!
A lot of Southwest style fringe outfits are made with soft, camel-colored suede. While this may be too heavy to wear at the end of summer, as soon as the weather begins to cool, you’ll be looking forward to pulling these staples out of your closet!
The bohemian look is one that always seems to be in style by utilizing different staples. A great way to give your outfit a boho vibe is to incorporate some fringe. If you want to start small, try a pair of fringe boots or a detailed leather handbag. If you want to take your fringe game up a notch, though, go for a skirt. The great thing about a fringe skirt is that you can easily transition it from summer to fall since it covers more leg than the classic mini skirt. If a fringed mini is still too short for you, though, opt for a maxi skirt to create a carefree look.
Another great way to incorporate fringe into your style is to look to the queen of the bohemians herself – Stevie Nicks. If you see a luxurious kimono with fringe sleeves and you’re not sure if you’re able to pull it off, just think, “What would Stevie do?” She’d choose that kimono for sure and probably also pair it with a floppy sun hat.
“Pair this look with pointy-toe heels or knee-high boots.”
Just because fringe is associated with the cowboy or boho look doesn’t mean it can’t be chic as well. After all, flappers practically trademarked the fashion staple back in the 1920s, and who was more stylish than the Jazz Age women? Fringe isn’t just perfect for people who want a carefree, ethereal look. Fringe can be very glamorous too. Consider adding a little black dress with some fringe at the bottom to your cocktail party wardrobe or even trading the brown suede jacket in for a more sleek black leather fringed one. Pair this look with pointy-toe heels or knee-high fashion boots.
It isn’t just hobo style bags that can be completed with some fringe, either. A bit of fringe can dress up a shiny black leather clutch too. It’s the perfect accessory if you want to give your outfit just a little something extra. If you’re looking to channel a glamorous, woman-in-charge vibe with your black fringe, wear it with some leather leggings or dark denim skinny jeans.
