Fringe is a style that was made to look, edgy and ladylike, unexpected and yet totally wearable. Luckily, this isn’t one of those trends that you’ll have to wait until spring to start dressing up in. Fall is the perfect time to binge on fringe fever. It’s my favourite fall trend and personally, no matter what my mood, fringe is an embellishment that helps me express it. If you’re a beginner, we’ve highlighted a few styles on how to rock fringed pieces this season.

1. Add A Dash Of Fringe!

If you are a first timer, I suggest you start with accessories that are small. Take inspiration from Deepika Padukone’s boho-cool ensemble, even a fringed hobo bag can have a major impact on your whole outfit.

2. Opt For A Fringed Top.

Looking for the most accessible way to get in on the trend? I suggest, get yourself a fringed slouchy poncho jacket. Although you might hardly even notice the tassels, you’ll ultimately get the wow factor.

3. Make Fringe Your Statement Piece

Get inspired by Kim Kardashian, and pick up a fringed skirt, or a dress with a fringe bottom, and make it the statement piece of your outfit. Keep the rest of your look sophisticated and understated, letting the fringe do the talking.

Here’s what you need to remember:

1. If it’s cold enough for you to put on warm tasseled boots, it’s cold enough for you to put on pants – a mini dress does not work what-so-ever.

2. Don’t go OTT channeling a 1970’s bohemian spirit. Keep your accessories minimal with beaded belts and necklaces.

3. Although fringe looks particularly modern and can be mixed with your everyday separates for an instant update, mix and match carefully. Don’t make it a case of ‘The piece that ruined the outfit’.

If you are absolutely in love with the trend, you should know fringing comes in all lengths and styles, so whether you go short and subtle or long and eccentric, there are plenty of ways to make this flexible trend work for your fashion persona.
