Tricky Trend – How to Wear Fringe

Tricky Trend – How to Wear Fringe

Tricky Trend – How to Wear Fringe It is a known fact among anglers that fish adore bright or dangling items, which is why fishing lures are made to look like they’re ready for an underwater rave.  It is also why fashion houses are so keen on adding sequins or fringe (or even sequins on fringe) to their garments—because they know that women are also attracted to shiny, dangling items.  Fringe is adorable, it’s fun, it’s flirty.  Who doesn’t love fringe?  The problem is not too much fringe (because there can never be too much fringe).  No, the problem is wearing fringe and not looking like you’re a cast member of a summer stock production of Hair. Wearing Fringe—Less is More Coco Chanel allegedly once said, “Before you leave the house for the day, look in the mirror and then take one thing off.”  Much like with accessories, fringe should be worn in moderation.  While it was probably the height of style at back when Wyatt Earp played Marshall or when Hendrix wailed out Purple Haze at the Monterey Pop Festival, today the use of fringe is slightly more subdued.  You can’t leave the house with a fringe jacket, fringe purse, fringe shorts, and fringe boots without looking like Vanessa Hudgens at Coachella.  Less is more, so think about paring down a bit before walking out the door. Music Festival Bohemian 1) MM6 Maison Margiela Dress 2) Reminiscence Necklace 3) Proenza Schouler PS1 Runner Bag 4) Via Roma XV Boots   Going to a music festival is the perfect time to drag out that large fringe bag of yours.  It’s the best accessory for a breezy mini-dress and...
