STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: It’s Fringe-tastic!

Style Advice of the Week

Fringe has been in and fringe has been out in the world of fashion. However, this Fashionista proves that fringe is most definitely in this season! While studying in Rome, Italy, this Fashionista can wear this fringe jacket to classes, sightseeing, shopping and going out at night. It is the perfect addition to any outfit in any season.

First came the fringe boots, then the fringe purses and now comes the fringe suede or fringe leather jackets. While in Italy, there have been several trendsetters walking around with a fringe jacket over their thin sweaters or basic T-shirts. This Fashionista adds a little boho feel to her in-store Forever 21 fringe jacket find with jeans, a striped crop top and a pair of tall brown and black leather riding boots. A similar fringe jacket can be perfectly paired with a night out dress, a casual maxi dress or even with a pair of high-waisted jean shorts and a bustier when the warmer weather embraces you.

Maybe you want to be a little more bold and daring with your fringe-ified outfit. We all have been acquainted with the studs and spikes trend in recent months, which can confidently turn an outfit into an edgy one. Well, now we can have both spikes and fringe! This jacket, which is currently on sale, can give you the best of both trends and allows you to step out of the fashion boundaries to make a spring statement. Granted, it is not leather like the majority of the street fringe jackets, but the spikes compensate for the lack of it.

For those who are hesitant towards the fringe jacket but want to be fashion-forward this season, this jacket is the perfect solution. It is not too dramatic but has just enough fringe to make you the trendsetter of your university. For those fringe lovers living in warmer climates, a colored fringe vest would be a fabulous alternative.
