It’s been in fashion for decades now, but with it being showcased on the runway this year’s fashion week, fringe is the must-have fashion staple for anyone’s wardrobe this spring and summer seasons. It’s been suggested that the reason fringe is this year’s must-have is due to the ever-booming popularity of boho chic, making this textural embellishment a must-have for anyone who wants to dress to the nines in this year’s fashion trends.
Don’t worry too much about whether or not you are going to be able to afford to look your best in fringe this year; whether you’re shopping on a budget or have some extra change lying around, it’s possible to add fringe into your every-day wear no matter the activity you’re participating in.
Some fringe outfit ideas are:
1. Take it to the beach:
If you’re anything like the millions of people who want to stay cool this summer, you’re probably going to hit the beach or at least a near-by pool to cool off. Just because you’re in the water, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be fashion forward. Bathing suits, sarongs, and even flip flops can be found with luscious fringe as a main textural accent at the hems and at the bust. Remember though, don’t overdo the fringe.
If you’re uncomfortable wearing just a bathing suit, try a long fringe t-shirt dress over your suit, or add a pair of fringed shorts with a bikini top.
Remember to top off your outfit with a pair of fun sunglasses and flip flops for a well polished beach or pool-going look.
If these don’t suit your fancy, you can find fringe on plenty of beach-wear pieces such as:
‣ Bikinis. ‣ One piece suits. ‣ Bathing skirts. ‣ Sandals.
‣ Oversized T-shirts. ‣ Summer dresses.
2. Fun in the sun:
Summer weather is all about keeping as cool as possible, especially if you live in a place that has hot and humid air. Pair a fringe belly shirt with a modern high-waisted short for that boho-chic look. Add in fringed earrings or a fringe necklace for a little extra pop.
Add in a pair of strappy sandals or gladiator sandals for added interest.
3. Daytime casual:
Pair a flowy fringe top with the fringe at the bust rather than the hem with a pair of cuff shorts, strappy sandals, and bangle bracelets for a more casual daytime look.
Some other fun day-time fringe items are:
‣ Fringed shorts ‣ Fringe t-shirts ‣ Backless fringe shirts ‣ Fringe Capri pants
‣ Fringe tank tops. ‣ Fringe sandals ‣ Fringe scarves ‣ Fringe bandanas.
‣ Cut offs. ‣ Jackets.
4. Evening Sass:
If you want to add some fringe into your nighttime extravaganza or to a first date, you may want to consider wearing a fringed skirt or cute summer dress out. There are many stunning dresses to choose from that have a far more sophisticated feel to them than a t-shirt dress would. Pair it with an elegant fringe necklace and earrings, a couple of bangle bracelets and a strappy heel and you’re set for an evening of romance.
Remember, if you’re not overly keen on wearing your fringe, your accessories can pull their weight in gold to add some much needed texture to any outfit you may consider wearing during the summer months. Earrings, necklaces, bracelets, shoes, and hand bags are all perfect fringe accessories for the more timid trend follower.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you shouldn’t over-do fringe; it is easy to take it to a costume-y level without meaning to. Keep it minimalistic when you can and pair it with neutrals or crisp modern pieces to keep the look classy and flirty.
