Fearless Fringe

12 months ago by

There’s something totally iconic about a fringe dress. Historically and sartorially, it represents an unparalleled feminine confidence. Bold and empowered women wore these frocks to declare a sense of freedom, pleasure, and down right fun. Can you think of a better fashion statement than that?! Whether you’re an old Hollywood Glam fan like me, or you have ever had the pleasure of attending a Gatsby-themed party, you may at one point or another have donned an LFD (little fringe dress) and done your best Josephine Baker impression. As much as I would actually love to pretend I’m in a 1920’s novel every day, I think we can all agree that playing dress up is one thing, but dressing for your every day life is another. Lucky for us, this season there is a way to translate this dressing nonpareil into a modern street-chic look. Below are a few ways to add a little playful flair into you wardrobe and make a statement! Which would you try?

A hint of fringe can liven up an everyday sweater. Upgrade your normal jean-and-sweater combo, and as a plus, you can easily transition your look from day to night!

As we’ve covered, fringe is about fun. Mixing a texture with a bold pattern is guaranteed to make a splash, and let’s be honest this just looks fun to wear.

Mix it up by trying out a fringe-y accessory! A frayed straw or string tassel adds this desired style in a different way. After all, why should your body get to have all the fun?
