Fringe Benefits: 5 Ways To Wear Fringe this Spring
I have a love affair with fringe. Whether it’s hanging Western-style from a suede coat, dangling delicately from a flapper dress, or swaying on the back of a bohemian maxi dress, I’m a freak for fringe. Here are 5 ways to fuse fringe into your spring closet:
On your everyday tee or sweater:
Saint Laurent’s tee ($695)makes chic rock n roll look easy.
A little sexiness is easier with fringe, especially with Haute Hippie’s sleevess tank with fringe laddering down the spine($195).
Etoile Isabel Marant’s fringed sleeve sweater ($470) is a summer essential.
On a dress:
There’s fringe and then there is Jason Wu’s sequin fringe ( $2150). A modest neckline gives way to a perfect shift and surprising paillette fringe. Dying! Pair with your favorite strappy heels for a beautiful intersection of lines.
Then there’s Candela’s thoroughly modern shirt dress ($375). This could easily have a Navajo sweater or wrap thrown over it with a pair of camel ankle boots for a more casual vibe.
I’m also entirely in love with Alice + Olivia’s black fringe and chiffon maxi skirt ($295) easily paired casually with a white v-neck tee or dressed up with an ivory silk tank and heels.
In your jewels:
Ward off bad energy and invite great everything else with these delicate and chic Evil Eye Studs ($200)
Vince Camuto’s silver and white stone pendant ($68) is a perfect base layer for necklace party.
In your shoes:
Tod’s oxford is a stunner, especially with your boyfriend jeans and a tee. ($725)
But for a strong start to your summer wardrobe, try Visconti & Du Reau thong ()
And helllllooooo perfection in a summer bootie! Valentino, as usual, fulfills my fashion fantasies with their version of a fringe short bootie ($1195). You’ll wear these FOREVER. Like, forever.
Stacked heel sandal lovers will rejoice upon sight of another pair of Valentino stunners. These fringed and disc-studded babes ($1045) will look amazing with all cuts of jeans (except bootcut, unless they are J Brand’s leather bootcut jeans, those are amazing) and a light weight sweater or tee/cardigan combo. Also amazing with maxi dresses.
With a jacket:
Maje’s 3/4 length lightweight spring coat ($605) is an (almost) year round piece perfect for layering.
The fringe edging of this asymmetric blazer from McQ Alexander McQueen ($1035) is the perfect way to dress up every shade of denim.
