3 Fun Ways to Wear The Fringe Fashion Trend

Shake it up ladies because fringe is trending this fall! It’s fun and flirty, and there are many ways to wear it. Here are a few you may not have thought of.

1. Fringe Neckline/Hem Dress

A touch of fringe at the neckline or hem of your dress is festive. I love the colors of the fringe on this stunning coral dress. It makes it come alive!

Fringe has been trending for some time now, but I’ve seen a lot of fringe clothing that’s been a little too over the top for my taste. My style leans towards elegance, which means for me, less is more. That’s exactly why this chic dress from Talbots works so well for me.

I love the way this festive fringe neckline looks really modern and lights up my face the way a pretty necklace would. I’ve added dangly tassel earrings to mirror the fringe look. You could certainly wear other earrings, but whatever you choose, I’d go for something textured and dangly to match the playful vibe of this dress.

Can you believe this purse? It’s so cute with its painted cafe scene! I don’t care how old you are. Sometimes you just want a fun accessory in your wardrobe that’s full of whimsy.

A statement bag like this would be really especially perfect if you were going to some kind of special ladylike function like a luncheon, shower, charity event, or girlfriend meet-up. I think I might have got the last one, but there are lots of other fun purses out there this spring.

This outfit is classy and playful at the same time. The cheery coral color is upbeat and confident, and the nubby texture of this dress gives it a carefree vibe.

Another great thing is the shape. It’s very flattering and forgiving! It’s a shift dress which means it falls straight down from the shoulders with slight nip-in at the waist, but it is not as fitted as a sheath dress would be. So, if you have a bit of a midlife middle, this dress gives you lots of wiggle room.

I love being able to incorporate something trendy like fringe into my wardrobe in a more subtle way. It makes me feel confident that I’m wearing the dress and it isn’t wearing me

2. Fringe Sleeve Sweater

All you need is a bit of Fringe at your sleeves to create a look that is carefree and playful.

3. Fringe Neckline Sweater

Here’s another cute way to get fringe up around your neckline.  This cute sweater is from Kate Spade.

I’ve nicknamed this cute Kate Spade Top my Lion top because all that fringe around the neck make me feel like I have a mane. I am Leo, after all, so I guess it’s really quite appropriate. (LOL!)

The Paprika color is divine, but this silky blend sweater also comes in a stunning cobalt blue.

The thing with this top is that I would always wear it with something very sleek and tailored. If I wore this top with a big full skirt, lots of layers, or loose pants, I think I would look like a circus clown.

It’s a fine line when you are wearing something a little quirky like this, at least for me. I’m not one for an over-the-top quirky look. I like clean lines, classic shapes, and just a small twist in the way of interesting detail, like this neckline.

It’s hard to see my gold pave earrings here, but they are Kate Spade too, and I LOVE THEM! They are classic but modern, and they go with everything. Check them out in the shop in the post below.

My quilted bag is by Michael Kors- I just got it too. It is soft and super light, which is great considering it has a gold chain, and chain purses are usually heavy. This bag looks very expensive in person, like a Chanel or Dior, but it’s not. I’m very impressed with it. You can wear it over your shoulder like this ( double chain) or as a crossbody ( single chain).

Finally, I just wanted to mention my Blush-colored suede sandals. They are from a Canadian brand Wishbone Collection at Browns, but there are many other great suedes slides out there, too.
