Fringey Fashion

Fringe tops are currently having a major moment. If you've been following along with the Coachella fun, then you have probably noticed that every festival-goer has worn some version of the fringe top. It's universally known that music festivals call for easy going fashion. Although we associate fringe tops with loud music, retro jumpsuits, and swing dresses, you can certainly pull inspiration from the current festival looks and work them in to your weekend wardrobe. Who doesn't love a dose of laid-back fashion?

Fringe tops can be delicate and fun, but if you wear too much of it all at once you will distract the viewer. My favorite tops are lacey with thin fringe along the bottom. I'm not a fan of the long/think fringe tees, I think it comes off a little too relaxed. 

 Here's how you can rock the fringe top back at home:
-> Opt for basic colors (grey, camel, or black)
->Pair with light colored bottoms. Nothing looks more polished than a fresh pair of white pants! 
->The more delicate the jewelry, the better.
->To tailor the look, throw on a fitted blazer. The fringe bottoms peeping out will add visual interest
-> If you have a short torso you can lengthen your look by wearing longer necklaces.
->Take your favorite footwear for a spin. I personally love gladiator sandals. When I found these leather heeled sandals by Vince Camuto, I had to stop myself from buying them in cognac and black! Thankfully I had time to think it through before cashing out at the register. I decided to go with the cognac sandals. It's a great color for summer and pairs well with practically anything! Have I convinced you to buy them yet? Perhaps I'll leave that for another blogpost ;).

Like I always say, have fun with it! Choose a fringe top that looks best for your body shape. Pair with fun accessories and be ready to work the ultimate laid-back style. And lastly, don't forget to capture a fun photo of yourself dancing in the sun. After all, that's what fringe tops are for!

What I'm Wearing: Leather Heeled Gladiators: Vince Camuto, Fringe Top: Nordstrom Monteau (similar here), Jeans: Madewell, Necklace: Dor L' Dor in Red Bank


XO,

  3. FABULOUS pieces here. Love the black fringe top- you're right, that has Coachella written all over it. And I love the pairing of the white jeans & cognac booties. I have a similar pair and I think I need to try them out with white jeans.
