Since life is a bit boring at the moment, consider adding a fun new item to your closet in anticipation of when we might start venturing out more. Fringe has come in and out of fashion throughout the decades. In the roaring 20’s, flapper dresses were all the rage. Then in the 70’s celebrities like Cher famously wore fringe on western jackets, cocktail dresses and gowns. Now it’s back in fresh new silhouettes for a contemporary take on the trend.
Since fringe can make a strong statement, it is important to think about balance when putting your outfit together. Keep the rest of your clothing and accessories neutral with the pop being the fringe, whether it be on a sweater, jacket, handbag or shoes. If you only want to dip your toes in the trend, opt for subtle treatments instead of oversized fringe details. Here are my top 10 items with fringe elements to add some pizzaz to your closet. I found many styles which are over half off right now and will probably sell out quickly. Happy browsing!
