Whether it's a bag shoe or coat you're coveting, one things for sure - fringing is the statement trim of the season! Here's three ways to wear it now
Fringing, it’s the statement trim of the season and trust us, it’s everywhere. Cast your minds back to September when Alberta Ferretti sent out look after look of tassled tan suede, well, now the high street is awash with cow-girl appeal too. But if the Western way doesn’t work for you, there’s fly-way flapper fringes and seriously trialing raw edges to suit. Here’s three ways we’ll be wearing it this summer.
For the softest take on the 70’s, it’s got to be suede. And an accessory such as a bag is the simplest way to do it. The teal colour pop of this Miss Selfridge rucksack means its more refined then rodeo but the patchwork boarder keeps its Navajo credentials in check. Use it to update a button-down skirt and peasant blouse combo or check into Folklore trend and team with an embroidered dress. Pretty Perfect.
A parade of nylon fringing will add a flirty finish to an evening look, add-in a smudge of red lipstick and its all-out vintage glamour. But if you’re not a Gatsby gal, that’s ok too, because fringing doesn’t just mean flapper. In fact if this killer look from Dsquared2 is an indication, fringing doesn’t have to mean classic tassels at all. The stings of black beading on these sandals and shirt hang long and loose, giving then a decadent fringe effect with a glossy edge. It’s fringing ladies, but not as you know it Hell for Leather
Hell For Leather
A fringed leather jacket isn’t exactly breaking news but with fringing at fashion’s forefront and festie season fast approaching, it’s the perfect way to embrace a new trend and keep your nonchalant, cool-girl status. Last year Poppy Delevingne wore hers poolside at her Coachella hen do, and least we forget Miss Moss’ annual ode at Glastonbury. This season you can forget a single line of tassels. Ladies, we urge you, go all-out for Summer and choose a style with lashings of slashed leather tails. For a payday splurge, go for this ThePerfext from Avenue 32 or if it’s a bargainous fix you need, head straight to Mango.
