For the Spring/Summer season, there is one very obvious trend that is impossible to ignore: fringe. Fringe was everywhere on the catwalk for the Spring/Summer collections, with designers such as Emilio Pucci, Alberta Ferretti, Etro and many more creating fringe designs. Most often seen with bohemian or 70s inspired styling, this trend might look hard to wear – but it doesn’t have to be! Here are a few tips for making this look work and it can be absolutely amazing when styled correctly.
Select one fringe piece with just some fringe trim for a casual look. Having too much fringe can be a problem or make the outfit look over-done. A biker jacket which features a line of fringe under the arms or across the back is a simple way to work this trend that is still so wearable. A fringe skirt is another simple way to give this look a go, and it becomes easier to wear when teamed with a classic shirt and simple accessories – let the skirt be the focal point of the ensemble.
Another easy way to try this trend out is a top that features a frayed fringe end. Pair with denim cut-offs and sandals for a relaxed and boho-inspired off-duty outfit that would look at home at a music festival, the beach or just enjoying a relaxed day out.
Not brave enough to wear fringe clothing? There are plenty of accessories that also feature this trend that are perhaps more subtle looking. A bag with some fringe detailing is easy to throw on, just pair with a basic outfit so the overall look doesn’t become too messy. Fringe sandals look gorgeous and there are even fringe necklaces and backpacks – look out for brown suede pieces in particular, as these look more plush and have that 70s vibe that was so prominent all over the catwalks for the season.
