We are fringing on fall and fashion reinvention is at it's best. Personally, no matter what my mood, fringe is an embellishment that helps me express it. And this season, designers are giving you plenty of opportunities to express yourself in the form of fringing.
This fun detailing adds both drama and femininity to any look, so it is no surprise that fringe was showcased on a slew of runways during recent fashion weeks. From sweaters to evening gowns, pumps to purses, there were versatile uses of tassels on practically every type of garment possible.
The chic, fashion-forward version of the style that called my name was a swingy fringe midi-skirt (pictured above), which I paired with a simple top and standout heel to let the piece speak for itself. I had so much fun wearing this outfit, mainly because the skirt shimmied when I moved, drawing the attention of even the most fashionable New Yorkers. If you’re daring enough to dive deep into this trend, fringed skirts, jackets, and dresses pack a big punch.
You can also rock fringing in more conservative ways and still look totally on target. For a more subtle touch, consider a fringed accessory, such as earrings, a statement necklace, or a scarf. If you are worried that fringe adds too much bulk to your outfit, keep your duds in the same color family to streamline your overall silhouette and downplay the extra texture. For a memorable—yet muted—flash of fringe, try boots, a tasseled clutch, or a short-fringed oxford shoe.
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 trend work for your fashion persona. Check out some of my favorite outfits below to find your inspiration for living on the fringe!
