If you’re stuck in a closet rut like me (a.k.a you hate everything that you currently own) and are looking for unique summertime pieces you might want to try some fringe. Everyone knows the strategy of updating an old outfit with a new accessory or pair of shoes. But what about updating your closet with some garments that already have added flair attached to them? Fringe, no doubt, is both visual appealing and fun to wear. From the flapper dresses of the roaring 20s to the boho chic and western looks of the 70s, fringe is back in all its splendor. Designers such as Roberto Cavalli and Ralph Lauren sent looks down the runway that literally sashayed just as much as the models. Fringe comes in many forms depending on how you want to get your fix. Tops, jackets, dresses and even necklaces have been creatively adorned with fringe.
Today's Fashionista is the epitome of the 21st century bohemian. As her base garment she keeps it simple with a long, black maxi dress that she pairs with a colorful crochet vest. She is right on trend with her black fringed cross-body bag and gorgeous pendant necklace. To finish off her look she’s wearing teardrop shaped Ray-Bans and a few rings to channel her inner hippie chick.
Adding a little fringe to your everyday outfit can be easier than you think. The key is to not go overboard with it. The featured Fashionista did an excellent job of pairing both of her fringed pieces together because her purse was a darker color and blended well with her dress. Doing so made her vest the statement piece of her ensemble. If you’ve never befriended fringe before, try it out on a skirt or a pair of earrings to get your look moving in a stylish direction.
