Fringe trend is so hot right now! The best fringe looks were showcased at Michael Kors who mastered clever pairing of fringed pieces and Aran knits. The other look combined Wild West influences with sophisticated 1970s. Whichever look you choose, use fringe in your warm and cozy looks to add a little fun and boho-flair. The most popular fringe offerings from the runway featured skirts and bags. However, the best street styles are still very much about fringe boots. Although I have not recently seen any fringe boot on the runway, it is still a popular footwear type juding from what fashion bloggers are wearing.
Get ready for summer 2011 with simply chic fringe detailing! Little did I know that fringing emerged as a universal trend with very complex origin. Fringe detailing can be associated with relaxed Boho chic ethnic fashion, Wild West cowgirl (Ashish) style, Native American Pocahontas (Roberto Cavalli) clothing or dancing 1920’s ensembles (Alexander McQueen).
With such a wide variety of styles it’s no wonder the A-list are indulging in some fringe benefits – channelling the season’s fierce vibe, as seen on the catwalk. Sandals that hug your ankles with fringe detailing, tasselled crossbody bags, fringe boots, dresses that add vivacious movement, nod to the summer 2011 look. Let’s see what we’ve got:
Leather fringe of the one piece combines modern glamour with a rustic cowgirl feel for a sassy beach look. Note that it features a plunging neckline with a fringe trim that adds volume to your chest. As seen on Lindsay Lohan.
Step lively with swingy fringe and a peek of skin. Wear your fringe sandals with signature cargos for a casual look, a feminine top, a dress or a cashmere sweater for a more sophisticated cocktail look. As seen on Kristin Cavallari.
In spring summer 2011 this will be your major fashion dilemma: whether to choose a delicate fringed tassel bag that will make admirers take a second look or a relaxed hippie-style fringed crossbody bag. As seen on Vanessa Hudgens.
