When they say that everything old becomes new again, they must have been thinking about fringe, because fringe is coming back in a major, major way in 2018 and beyond. Why is fringe so popular? Well, there are a few different reasons: it is easy to wear, it flatters most figures, and it is just a little bit of fun that you don’t get in many other styles.
For most of us, we’ve long purged our closets of the fringe that we wore before, so we might want to add a few staple pieces back into our wardrobes. Where can we start? Let’s take a look:
Just a Pop of Fringe
When you want to add fringe, you don’t have to start with a piece of clothing. Instead, you can add fringe with your accessories and your jewelry. Fringe earrings in a great color, a fringe necklace, or even a bracelet can really help to bring out your inner fashionista – and they aren’t a huge investment. When it comes to fringe, it is rather easy to look cheap or like you didn’t take care of your jewelry – but that doesn’t have to be the case. When you find a great pair of earrings that doesn’t require constant maintenance, you will have good luck.
Just make sure to store them in a way where the fringe won’t get pushed around too much.
The most common way to wear fringe in today’s world? Of course as a little something extra on your feet. Fringe booties are the most classic style because they don’t seem as “extra” or “over the top” as some other styles. Whether you want to look chic with just a bit of a twist or you want to bring in that western flair into your style.
Keep your boots clean and dry if you can, because fringe on booties can mess up fairly quickly.
Don’t Forget the Dress
Of course, we all know that fringe dresses have always been in style and probably will always be. However, in the next few months, you won’t have to worry about looking “retro” when you wear a great swinging fringe dress.
Make sure to dress it up or down, but keep your accessories minimal so that you don’t overwhelm the star of the show – the fringe itself.
In An Expected Way
Expected doesn’t always have to mean boring. If you want to dress up your outfit with a little bit of fringe – or maybe even some fringe that you can take off and put back on as you wish, consider a fringe scarf. Now, fringe scarves can look extremely cheap and can fall apart, so you want to make sure that you find a scarf that will withstand the test of time.
If you want to add fringe to your wardrobe, you don’t have to go over the top crazy – instead, you can add fringe here and there to make it look better.
