We’re deep into fashion week season! And despite New York and London having successfully showcased their Spring/Summer 2016 collections, everyone’s focus in the fashion world has turned to a different season: fall. Fall fashion is popping up all over, from leggings to scarves to midi-length skirts. But the one trend that has us moving so far this season is the chic shimmy and shake of fall fringe!
Gone are the days of fringe being associated with hippies and cowboys. These days, the key to the modern take on fringe is using it sparsely and strategically to enhance a look rather than overwhelm it. Sally Lapointe led the charge with the gorgeous movement of her fall fringe skirt. We love the creamy white and the short silhouette, especially when paired with a slouchy, oversized sweater. We picked out this cute, budget-friendly option from YesStyle to transition into the trend. Bonus: the wrap accent makes it perfect for summer too!
With color palettes starting to get darker, it’s always smart to have a fresh, new LBD on standby. This season, we took a cue from Angel Sanchez‘s flair for the dramatic and opted for an evening option with a little pizzazz. We fell hard for the cut of this sheath by By Malene Birger, perfect for fall weddings or cocktails by candlelight. The best part? The loop of fringe around the hem. The second best part? The price tag.
Keeping in the same theme of formalwear, we dug a little deeper to see what other evening options we could unearth with fringe. No one combines evening wear with ultra-femininity better than Lela Rose. Her fun and flirtatious black and white party dress is unforgettable thanks to the fringe-y feathered accents. We took the B+W trend one step further with this striped and fringed stunner from Haute Hippie. Dressed up or down, this one-stop statement piece will carry you effortlessly throughout the season.
If one standout piece is what you’re looking for to turn heads this season, then look no further than the fringed kimono. As the perfect combo of East meets West, designers like Libertine took to their Fall 2015 runways to show off incredibly chic and artful pieces. If you’re like us and looking to make one big splurge, then we found a favorite version in this jacket by Etro. Beautifully made and totally unique, this jacket and all these fringe pieces, will have you shimmying onto the best dressed lists of the season!
