On The Fringe

Three looks that are popular right now are the flapper girl look from the victorian era, the modern-day hippie look, and the western cowgirl look. What's the one fashion trend that fits in with all of these looks? Fringe! Fringe is everywhere right now. While fringe seems to be most popular on shoes and handbags, I love it on dresses, belts, vests, tops, etc. as well. I'm going to feature a variety of different fringe embellished items in this article.

To get the flapper girl look, wear a fringe dress, a pearl necklace, a sequined purse, a feather headband, and some high heeled pumps. For the modern hippie look, get an oversized fringe handbag, a maxi dress or a tie-dyed shirt with ripped/bleached jeans, flip flops, and some bangles. If you want to try out a western-inspired look; grab some fringe boots, a plaid button-down shirt, a denim skirt (you can add a fringe belt if you want), and a cowboy or straw hat.

I'm glad you liked all the stuff that are black. I did notice a lot of the items I posted happened to be black as well. I think it's a nice color that looks good on everyone. :)
