fringe-suede-jacketFringe.  Who doesn’t love it. It’s playful look and graceful moment.  If you want to have a mini fashion moment wear some fringe and it’s like you are walking down a runway at fashion week with every step you take.  Fringe has been waxing and waining in and out of fashion trends for years.  I mean, who didn’t want Sloane Peterson’s white fringe moto jacket from Ferris Bueller’s Day off.  Did you wish your mom had a wardrobe like Cindi Mancini’s mom so that you too could pretend that Patrick Dempsey was your boyfriend?


How to Wear Fringe

Fringe has been around for decades and is a trend that looks great on shoes, skirts, and handbags. Here are some great examples of how to wear fringe.

Fringe Trend For Kids:

Best Practices for Wearing Fringe:

  • For a piece with lots of fringe or long fringe (skirt, dress) go for a classic color like; black or tan.  Bring colors and long fringe can be too overwhelming on certain body types
  • For pieces off your body like a clutch, don’t be afraid of bright colors like cobalt blue!
  • For fringe footwear I recommend black or tan simply because it’s on your feet and you want them to look as clean as possible.
  • Look for suede texture fringe for a classic look
  • You can never go wrong with fringed swimwear – just always carefully hand wash and never machine wash
  • For fringed knits like wraps opt for macrame fringe (silk variation) that holds up beautifully.


It’s hard to wear fringe and not be in a good mood. This playful trend is sure to give you a bounce in your step and with it readily available pretty much anywere (Asos, Zara) it’s a cheap trend to try.
