I decided to tackle one of the hottest trends this spring – FRINGE!! Now, I have to be honest…. I would have never really called myself a fan of fringe before. In fact, I am pretty sure that I have never owned anything with fringe (except maybe a suede purse when I was in like Junior High). It’s not that I had anything against fringe necessarily… it would just always make me think of cowboys and westerns!!
But the fringe of today is definitely not the fringe of years past. This trend has been completely reinvented into something so fun and versatile that I actually think there is something for everyone! Tops, skirts, jackets, purses, shoes, even accessories like scarves, necklaces and earrings. It can easily be dressed up or dressed down too… you name it… it’s available! Designers having definitely taken a modern twist on this trend; uniquely combining fringe details with other great trends too: prints, bold patterns, stripes, pastels…
It was the versatility in options that really made me excited to give it a try. And when I saw this top from Ann Taylor… I knew this was the one! You know I’m crushing on color and prints right now… so this fringe just pushed it right over the top for me! I decided to style this look more casually with boyfriend jeans but I can easily see myself rockin’ this with a cute skirt for a fun night out or with some white skinny trousers for brunch!
