Get ready to get your fringe on, because Fall 2016 is all about the movin’, groovin’ swaying tassels of fringe!
Think Woodstock meets bohemian, meets flapper, meets city girl chic. Whether it’s shoes, purses, dresses, jackets, handbags, you name it, fringe is the biggest and best thing yet for 2016.
Fringe first became a popular trend back in the 1920s during the days of flappers fashion. The extravagant style was often used as an embellishment for fabrics such as suede, leather, and buckskin. It came back again in full steam during the hippie movement of the 1960s and just recently made its return in full force.
You can thank top designers like Ralph Lauren, Roberto Cavalli, Balmain, Valentino, and Louis Vuitton for bringing fringe back to the world stage for spring this year, and celebrity fashion icons for keeping it going through to fall. Don’t be surprised to see fringe sneaking into winter fashion either!
The great thing about fringe is that it is highly versatile. It adds texture, movement and spice to just about any outfit. Whether you’re going for a full do or just want to add a little dazzle to a boring old outfit, fringe should be your next go to investment.
Don’t be afraid to play with colours and fabrics too. Leathers, pleathers, silks, and satins have all had their time strolling down the runway this year in New York and Paris.
Join the likes of celebrity trend setters such as Kim Kardashian West, Rita Ora, Adriana Lima, Kate Hudson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jennifer Lopez, Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Amal Clooney on the fringe wagon!
Ramp up your old closet with some colour, some fun, and a little flavour this fall season!
