If there is one trend that has been hot this season, it’s fringe. Not only has it permeated every level of fashion, but several designers with different aesthetics seem to be jumping on the fringe band wagon. One of the great things about fringe is how it can make your outfit fun and sophisticated at the same time. However, there may be some of you who are skeptics. You may be thinking, “Well, won’t I look like a curtain?” Not if you do it correctly and in moderation like this Fashionista did.
While this Fashionista wore this look for a day out with friends, it’s a great day to night look on a hot summer day. She pairs a lovely off-white fringe kimono against a coral blouse and pair of light wash denim shorts with crochet detailing. To top off an already amazing outfit, this Fashionista adds a multicolored statement necklace and floral print purse to really make her outfit complete. In order to pull off a great look like this one, make sure that you are playing around with volume. If you use a billowy kimono with fringe, then you might want to pair it with a more tailored outfit underneath, just like this Fashionista did.
How to: If you feel up for trying this Fashionista’s look then I suggest starting with this stunning kimono with fringe from Anthropologie. With the intricate boarder detail, it can be perfect to transition you from summer straight into fall. Pair it with a bodycon skirt and crop top in the summer. In the fall, wear it with a long sleeve blouse, a pair of colorful skinny jeans and a statement necklace. For those looking for something vintage-inspired, this dress from American Apparel could be perfect. For those still worried about getting tangled up in fringe, this floral print button-up shirt could be the perfect solution. Wear it with a pencil skirt and some pumps for a play on boho versus preppy.
