This summer throw yourself into the fringe trend and stroll with swagger. I am obsessed with the fringe fashion trend because it adds pizazz to any look, especially an otherwise boring one. Designers are making it easier to implement the trend in your wardrobe by adding fringe to a lot more pieces. Fringe can now be seen on the runway detailing everything from jackets to hemlines. Embrace this fun-loving look and check out some of my showcase pieces!
I love this first piece because of its elegant light color and its ability to be very versatile. This beige jacket can be paired with jeans or thrown over a dress during a breezy evening. The removable fringe vest adds a pop of silver and helps enliven this otherwise simple collarless jacket. It is a straightforward way to layer your summer outfit and could turn into one of your favorite jackets to take along with you.

This next showcase is so stimulating! I don’t think anyone will look at the rest of your outfit when slipping on this fringe-detail open-toe suede bootie. This isn’t just a fall/ winter shoe. However, this shoe will help you transition into the fall later this season. This bootie will go well with your dresses, your tight jeans, or anything that will let this shoe shine and take the stage. The gorgeous color makes it appealing along with the flow of fringe in the front.

And for those of you who wish to gear away from the bootie, and find something trendy, but at a lower price point, check out this Steve Madden shoe. It’s not available in all sizes but there are a few exciting colors to choose from.

Some of you may find that it’s tough to reinvent a dress. At this point accessories come to play to save the day. It can be difficult to find a statement piece that goes with a fitted, fancier dress. This is why I decided to showcase this long fringe necklace from Bebe. This will hug your neckline and cascade down a simple dress wonderfully.
