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