The ‘70s are in full swing because fringe is in! Fringe was one of the biggest trends seen at NYFW spring 2016, so it’s the perfect time to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe. However, the fringe trend can be tricky. To keep your look away from a western costume-y feel, follow this Fashionista’s lead and pair your fringe piece with a modern and simple top. The suede texture of the fringed vest adds a softer touch and doesn’t add too much bulk to the outfit. This vest is also very lightweight, so it’s wearable in the summer heat. A casual city stroll is an ideal time to let your fringe flow!

The black necklace that this Fashionista is wearing embellishes the suede texture of the vest and even has a fringed look to it. With the fringed ends of the vest falling effortlessly over these patterned shorts, this summer outfit is able to keep its minimalistic style, while still incorporating a bold statement piece. To keep with the color scheme, this Fashionista finished off the look with blue reflective sunglasses that match the coloring of her high-waisted shorts. Black and white always contrast well with a bright pop of color. Fringe can add drama to any look and comes in all lengths and styles. Shake off your fear of fringe and splurge on some fringed clothing items to add to your closet!

How To: In order to transition fringe into your fall wardrobe as well, wear a suede jacket with fringed sleeves to add some flare to your look. Make sure to keep the rest of your outfit simple, so that the fringe is the main focus of the look.
