This year’s spring runways have been filled with fringe. From handbags to scarves and jackets to dresses, fringe accents can be found across the board. I personally have never been a huge fan of fringe until now. The trend can be traced back to Native American clothing and still to this day have a native American influence. I have come to realize that it tends to make a piece feel vintage with a modern twist. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love that swishing sound you make with every step you take.
This Fashionista opted for a effortlessly casual look with a fringed sweater and super-soft printed knit leggings. I have often found that fringe can be a difficult look to pair other clothing items with. Usually, it is best to wear it with causal pieces or basics so the fringe can be the statement of your ensemble. My personal favorite fringe pieces include this Laura Moshi giraffe sweater, and this long fresh-floral fringe cardigan from Free People. They both have a relaxed feel to them that makes them easy to pair with and cozy up in during our last few months of winter. If fringed sweaters are not for you, a handbag is also always a great option if you want just a little fringe in your outfit—have fun with it!
