Fringe has been trending since spring of 2015, continued onto summer, and is still going strong for fall. If you pore over fashion magazines, style blogs, and the Instagram feeds of trendsetters, it’s pretty clear that the stylish set can’t seem to get away from the 1970s, so fringe would definitely be a must-have for fall and for that 70s look. There are many ways to rock the fringe without looking like you strolled in from the Wild, Wild West and here are my 5 favorite ways that’ll make you rethink the classic trend — and want to wear it out.
Of all the fringe clothing pieces, a fringe skirt proves to be a fun addition to any wardrobe. It might evoke a Pocahontas-like feel, but when worn with good blazer and button-down top or a plain-colored T-shirt, it can be worn even in the office. You can choose to go with a fringe hemmed skirt but if you think that is too much for you, you can always go with a fringe embellished one instead with less fringes.
Choose top with fringes on areas that you want to highlight and not on areas that you want to downplay as this will just draw more attention to the spot. Wear a fringe top with simple bottoms – such as bell-bottom jeans or pencil skirts.
For those looking to slowly embrace this trend, we suggest a fringe bag to get on trend. Fringed bags are so versatile. They are available in a bevy of colors, so you might find yourself investing in a number of fringe satchels and carryalls.
The most accessible way to get in on the trend? Get yourself a fringed jacket. It is one of the chicest fringe fashion trends for fall, as it can keep you warm and can revamp your look at the same time. Since fringe is over the top, the key to pulling off the look is to wear your jacket with simple, toned-down pieces. As you can see at the photos below, a plain tank top and skinny jeans are the best combo for this fringe fashion trend.
Shoes are a great way to have fun with fringe and not go overboard. Whether it’s sandals or boots, fringe shoes will infuse a unique sense of style into your wardrobe. But when wearing fringe boots, keep this mind: avoid pairing them with bulky or chunky pants, because the combo of fringed boots and baggy/bulky/chunky pants tend to blow off body proportions in a major way.
