Three Style Tricks To Keep Fringe A Classic
With all the trends out there, sometimes it can be a little tricky to figure out what’s going to last and what’s more of just a flash in the pan. And that’s what’s so great about fringe. It’s an unexpected classic. And believe it or not, it’s also one of the oldest style trends ever documented, going all the way back to the days of Mesopotamia. Yup, that’s right. Mesopotamia.
But let’s get back to today, and how to wear it IRL without coming across like a Halloween costume on laundry day. Because if we were being honest, it’s not something you can just toss on with anything and expect it to work. So here are a few tricks to make fringe just as easy to work into your wardrobe as your favorite pair of jeans.
1. Start with accessories: If you’re not sure how to start, a great pair of fringed accessories, like a bracelet or a pair of shoes is a simple way to ease into the trend without a huge commitment.
2. Go with a neutral color: Fringe is already going to be an eye catcher on its own. Keep the color muted and let that gorgeous texture do its thing! And p.s. if you love color, keeping your fringe neutral will make it even easier to wear with your favorite hues.
3. Choose one statement piece and keep the rest simple. It will work with basics, so styling it is a true no-brainer.
And here’s the best part about these three tricks. If you stick to them, that fringe piece that you invest in now is going to last you a lifetime. Even if it can tend to come and go with the seasons, it is a long-term classic.
