I think fringe first started becoming a big trend as the styles from the 70's started becoming more and more popular. However, now we are seeing fringe begin to take on more of the 1920's flapper girl style, as it is being used to create dressy and sexy pieces with a bit of flair. I love the versatility of this trend. You could wear fringe from morning to night, dressed up, dressed down or at the pool, and if you are really a fringe-aholic, 24/7. Personally, I love boho chic style and love the idea of incorporating a fringe sandal or handbag into any outfit. To me, fringe looks best when it is the center of attention in an outfit, but I think too much can be a problem as well, therefore I try to avoid wearing fringe on fringe, even if it is tempting. Also, I keep the rest of my outfit fairly simple, because I don't like having too many statement pieces clashing and overwhelming my look. No matter what look you are going for, this trend is all about having fun, so don't be afraid to try something new and go a bit out of your comfort zone. Spice up an ordinary white tee with a bold fringe statement necklace or patterned kimono. You can take glam to the next level by wearing a fringe dress with bold red lips, or by adding hanging fringe earrings to a little black dress.
