Street Style Spotting: Fringe, Fringe, Fringe!


Red carpet fashion has its place but as you might have noticed, it’s street style that serves as the true barometer of where fashion is at the moment, and of what we’re all going to see in stores (and possibly end up wearing) a few months from now. And right now, all we see is fringe, fringe, fringe! The 70s throwback trim is announcing its comeback, what with the runways (Proenza Schouler, Givenchy, Thakoon) and fashion newsmakers off runways showcasing the stuff like it was discovered yesterday.

If you’re looking to join the retro bash, fringe is a great way to test the waters, if you will. A tasseled bag can add a bit of on-trend appeal to pretty much any outfit, and if you’re in the mood to experiment a little bit, try a swaying, calf-grazing, fringed midi skirt with an understated top, or the other way around.

To inject some exaggerated drama (because who doesn’t love drama?), fringe up your standard little black dress, or build an otherwise understated outfit around just one, statement, fringed piece (a jacket works great here).

Can you dig it?
