HOW TO ADD A LITTLE TOUCH OF FRINGE THIS FALL
- You might think fringe fits a specific boho vibe, but the truth is the look is totally versatile and works well with several of today’s trends. Indeed, fringing comes in all lengths and styles, so whether you go short and subtle or long and eccentric, there are plenty of ways to make this flexible style work for your fashion persona. Not only this fun detailing adds both drama and femininity to any look, it is no surprise that fringe is adding fun flair to everything from jackets and skirts to bags and shoes for fall. Plus, from sweaters to evening gowns, pumps to purses, there are versatile uses of tassels on practically every type of garment possible. Therefore, no matter what your mood, fringe is an embellishment that can help you express it. So why don’t you give yourself plenty of opportunities to express yourself in the form of fringing ?
The key to wearing fringe this fall is simple: less is more. Wear one fringe piece at a time because chances are, your single fringe piece is statement enough.” If you’re looking for a more demure way to incorporate fringe, try a piece that uses it as an adornment. You can for instance embrace the romance of fall with mini fringe velvet boots, a chunky sweater, and a delicate skirt. The chic, fashion-forward version of the style that called my name was a swingy fringe mini-skirt which I paired with a simple long sleeve ruffled top and standout heels to let the piece speak for itself. If you’re daring enough to dive deep into this fringe style and rock it even in a more conservative way consider a fringed accessory, such as earrings, a fringed statement scarf or a necklace – you will still look totally on target. If you are worried that fringe adds too much bulk to your outfit, keep with a more subtle touch your clothes in the same color family to streamline your overall silhouette and downplay the extra texture.
Lastly, fall fashion is all about rich textures and fringe adds a warm dimension to a layered outfit. Therefore, you might know that fringe and denim are a match made in heaven, so start your outfit with torn jeans and your oversized warm sherpa denim jacket or a supple long coat. Then, swap your plain flats for a pair of sneakers with fringes. As an accessory, you will never go wrong by carrying a fringe bag – it’s one of the quickest ways to integrate the trend without becoming a total cowgirl. Go casual and incorporate a fringe bag into your everyday look. Once you start to plan and coordinate your outfit around it, you can pull off western-chic with ease !
