Accessories Report

Finding the right bag is like finding the right career for a lady. You want it to fit your personality, never to fall to pieces and to always be something you can tolerate on a daily basis. While some of us are in the process of finding that perfect career, let’s try practicing on a great, trendy bag just in time for summer. While fringe is usually the star of big events like Coachella, it has found its way on to accessories adding accents and a little flare to your handbags. In the past fringe has usually been associated with floral happy hippies, but today Fashionistas all over have redefined fringe and are making it a reoccurring summer trend.

I caught this Fashionista right on trend. In need of spicing up her work uniform she added a little color and a bit of fringe. Not only is the fringe on trend for summer, but so is the color and cross-body style of her bag. She scored this super cute bag at Payless.

When it comes to fringe, wear it with confidence and have fun. While this Howard Fashionista chose to wear her fringe more modest, just like Lisa from Stilettos & Diaper Bags did, don’t forget you can also bring the dramatics with your fringe. Take notes from Danielle over at Nany’s Klozet and Tanyesha. Their bags bring all the attention but still mixes well with the rest of their accessories and outfit.

You can find a fringe bag in an array of choices all with different looks. Try NASTY GAL, and Urban Outfitters for cute fringe bags ranging from modest to dramatic. You’re sure to find the right one for you. Have fun rocking your fringe bag and enjoy your summer Fashionistas!
