Fringe is back and it's being flaunted by celebs like Kim Kardashian. Although I am definitely not an advocate for donning the fringed moccasins that she was spotted wearing, it is possible for the trend to look nice.
I guess when you are Kim Kardashian, your existence is a fashion statement, so anything goes. For those of you on my side (who don’t see the beauty in fringed moccasins but still want to take on the fringe look), I have found some pieces that make fringe appealing.
Keeping things in the fall perspective, I love Sam Edelman’s leopard boots with fringe. They come in black if you don’t want to embrace both the leopard and fringe trends simultaneously. The fringe hangs from the side of this boot, hiding its tall platform. I adore the fun look of this spotted boot. Wear them with a skirt and expose the creative design of this shoe.

As usual, Vince Camuto scores an A+ from me. He is always hitting the trends spot on with an interesting and rough flair. I have so many of his pieces, and each one seems to elicit compliment after compliment.
This particular necklace is art deco with a punk twist. I love the all-black vixen look along with the studs on the sleek choker-like style, finished off with a flow of fringe falling down the neck. It’s a stunning necklace that deserves the right showcasing. Wear with a plunging neckline or over a light or bold color to show off this stunning piece.

Ready to really knock this trend to its fullest, maximum potential? Combine this season's black leather with fringe and – voila! – you have a rockin’ look that will even impress those who aren’t so fringe impressed.
This BCBG leather jacket is exquisite. It's got a neat arrow design and the cascading fringe on the sides can be zipped off for the days you just want to wear the flattering leather jacket on its own. Impressive and versatile, it’s a great piece to wear over your longer-flowing tops.
