On the fringe! We’ve been spying chic tassels on practically everything, from jackets to bags and dresses — and we’ve rounded up the best way for YOU to try the covetable look.
While some may normally only associate fringe with The Great Gatsby or festival season, the truth of the matter is that the trend has gone from casual and cool to seriously chic — it certainly isn’t just for the Coachella crowd anymore, and it’s a major look for spring and summer! During fashion week, we spied fringe detailing on everything from tasseled hemlines on dresses to ankle-straps on shoes as the trend emerged on a slew of runways including The Row, Tibi, and Joseph Altuzarra — and now you can SHOP the look and make it your own.
Fringe — Spring 2014 Trend Report:
The most alluring, (and surprising), addition of fringe is the way it has been incorporated into formalwear. From chic skirts to cocktail dresses and even gowns, the style has such a luxe vibe. The fringe seems most chic on black and white ensembles, as it allows the detailing to stand out in an understated way — and we think it’s such a refreshing option if you’re heading to a summer wedding, graduation party, or big bash.[hl_ndn videoid=”25633915″]
For those of you who can’t wait to unleash their inner boho babe, get ready to go crazy and embrace the fringe. From bold bags to jackets and cool shoes, there’s so many ways to stand out in tasseled style — and we aren’t the only ones who are keen to the trend!
If you’re a bit weary about embracing the look and fringe isn’t really for you, I recommend starting off small, like with a fringe bikini. The style is so fun for the beach and it’s a cool way to rock it without totally committing to the look.
