Fringe Trim Jackets Add a Hip Vibe

One of the best ways to pull together a casual outfit is with a jacket, but you don’t want one that looks too serious and stiff (making you look old). A fringe trim jacket solves this problem.



Sporty tweed jackets like this with raw, unfinished edges and detailing are fabulous for a few reasons:

  1. They shape your body– Raw edge jackets are tailored just enough to give you the structure you need without looking uptight.
  2. They’re relaxed and comfortable –  You can move in them, roll them up and toss them in a suitcase.
  3.  The raw edge fringe adds texture which makes your outfit less flat, more interesting.
  4. Fringe edge jackets are a little playful looking which translates into youthful.

Raw edge jackets are a natural with jeans or white pants, but they can also be worn with a classic, plain colored dress to make it look more hip. There’s a version for everyone.

Fringe jackets

You can go more conservative with a touch of short fringe all around the jacket. These three jackets above are good examples of that. I like the mix of classic pieces with a boho fringe jacket. To much fringe, as in a fringe jacket mixed with a fringe top, jewelry or bag, starts to make it look like you are wearing a costume.


Of course, some gals prefer an edgier look.  You can make a fashion statement by wearing a dramatic fringe jacket with leather pants. This Chevron Fringe Jacket is a real conversation starter.




Raw edge sweaters that look like jackets are popular too. This fringed knit sweater coat ( similar) is great for fall when you don’t want to wear a coat, but you need something.  What do you think of this look- classy, fun or just shabby like ripped jeans? I’d love to hear what you think.

  1. I love jackets that shape my body yet are relaxed and comfortable. In fact, my favorite blazer is just like that…

    The first jacket is my favorite, and I would love to add it to my wardrobe.

  2. We are women “of a certain age” who have been through the :fringe-and-jeans” thing back in the 60’s and 70’s. IMHO, (hopefully) having left “fast fashion” behind, our clothes should be remarkable for their construction and fabric, certainly not something we would EVER “roll up and toss in a suitcase.” This trend, along with faux leather accessories, glitzy “statement” jewelry and clothes than span one’s hips do not read “youthful”, but “mutton as lamb.”
