Fringe dresses are huge for Spring/Summer 2015. Fringe has been detailed on purses, sweaters, skirts and dresses for decades, most notably in the 1970s it was a significant trend for hippie fashion and bohemian fashion. Fringe has now made a big comeback with fringed dresses that are now beyond just casual wear making the transition to classier eveningwear status.
Fringe Runway Trends
Fringe has the charm of bohemian clothing, at Alberta Ferretti for example, the runway mirrored a flashback to the ‘70s with suede fringe, in shades of pastel. Elie Tahari also hopped on the fringe trend by using tiered leather shreds fully dedicated to a fringe look. Proenza Schouler showcased dresses and skirts swinging with every move eluding to a bohemian charm that unraveled with every step.
Fringe outwear is so on-trend, fringe leather jackets are statement pieces typically expensive so you can opt for a faux version of this trend if that’s better suited for your budget. There are more inexpensive options for leather or suede jackets at Zara that go for the more classic boho fringed look. For a more subtle fringe look that you can incorporate into your office wear, paired with a chic work dress, try a knit jacket or blazer with fringe details.
There are many options for fringe dresses, a lot of them go for a bohemian fashion feel while others, variations of an evening look, lean towards 1920s fashion with flapper style fringed dresses. A beaded fringe feather dress has all the elements of 1920s flappers, subtle embellishments such as beads and feathers with fringes make a dress chic and fitted for any evening event. A sequin fringe minidress with a sequined and fringed hemline is a more subtle nod towards the 1920s, suited for a night on the town or a date.
Fringe Purses and Bags
Fringed bags and purses are a huge trend, they can stylize any outfit. If you’re in search of a more casual everyday bag, try a fringed suede bucket bag, it’s very boho chic and goes with any casual ensemble. For a sexier fringe look, consider a leather messenger bag with fringes, this is a timeless addition to your purse collection.
Fringe dresses, jackets and purses come in varying styles, colors and fabrics paying homage to timeless trends from the 1970s or 1920s; though spanning over decades in variances, we can safely say fringe fashion is here to stay.
