Fringe Binge

Fringe: a decorative border of thread, cord, or the like, usually hanging loosely from a raveled edge or separate strip.

A decorative embellishment that originated in the 1920s, fringe has transcended time. It’s a popular look for any style–both on a seasonal fashion trend aspect and definitive classic staple. Versatile in its compatibility for any fabric and any occasion, fringe is a wardrobe must-have for any Modern Alice.

From Sonia Rykiel’s runway, Burberry’s editorial campaign, and fashion icon’s Olivia Palermo fashion week look, fringe has cemented itself in any woman’s closet as a staple piece.Fringe Binge

Classic, sexy, sophisticated, elegant, and trendy–anyone can pull off the fringe look, so long as it is done in a tasteful manner. And if you need a little bit more convincing, look no further than our favorite Tommy Ton street style snaps during fashion week around the world.

It’s not hard to see why fringe is a popular but classic trend. Spruce it up for a night out by going for a (faux) leather fringe skirt in the color black. Short and sweet or long and sultry paired with an all black top or another classic white tee, the fringe skirt is a definite choice for a girl’s night out or date night with your man.

For a daytime look, whether it be a Sunday brunch or straight to the office, choose a neutral color for the fringe skirt in either a nude color or snow white. A softer color palette hits the morning mark and keeps it HR appropriate. Complement the fringe skirt with a sweet blouse and cardigan or a solid sweater and a pair of open-toed heels to pull the look together.

When choosing to wear a fringe skirt, remember to keep the top simple. Too much can be distracting and busy. Over complicating with a top that’s riddled with embellishment in contrast to a skirt that’s already got a very distinctive accent is going overboard. Less is more and simplicity is key. Opt for that sophisticated, polished, and refined look.
