The Flapper’s are coming back baby, and it’s happening this summer in the form of fringe. We’re seeing a lot of fringe on skirts, tops, scarves, boots, and even sandals!

Wear It:

You can definitely pull off fringe without looking like your headed to a costume party.  Fringe looks best when it’s worn minimally and/or in one color.   Stay away from fringe jackets and jeans unless you’re going for the cowboy look.

Another big fringe tip is watching out for the type of fabric.  Crummy fabric can lead to the fringe clumping together or bunching up.

If fringe freaks you out swaying back and forth on your hips try the accessories route – a fringe purse or some cute fringe-topped shoes can spice up your life just as easily.

Accessorize It:

You don’t want to look overdone, so if you have to have something else with it try and stick to simple accessories.  Less is more!

Find It:

Fringe is lovely because it falls within the realm that most trends do – you can pay an un-godly amount for it or you can find it cheap.  Depending of course on how many seasons you want to keep your fringe going for would dictate how much to spend.

Forever 21 – Lots of fringe scarves here

Victoria’s Secret – They have some really cute fringe shoes!

Nordstrom – Great selection of fringe tops, skirts, and accessories

Neiman Marcus – Cute fringe dresses

    I love all of the pictures! While I’d like to consider myself pretty trendy, I didn’t know prior to reading your blog that I’d be able to pull off fringe. The black dress is great… I love it! I’m going to try to track down something like it.

      Thanks Erin! I added a bit more photos this time and I think it adds some interest so thanks for the feedback. Definitely rock the fringe! I just bought my first fringe dress a couple months ago – also black – and its so fun to wear. I have gotten the fringe caught on random things though so be careful… 🙂
