Fringe – It’s one of my favorite trends and I am thrilled that it’s back for 2016! It’s sophisticated and genuinely fun to wear, which is why I’m so excited to see it around every corner at Tanger. Designers came ready to rule with total fringed pieces, but have also used it as an accent on the sides of pants, the edges of handbags, the sleeves of jackets and my personal favorite… the straps of shoes/heels. It’s nearly unavoidable!
My mission is to get you to step outside of your comfort zone and this is the perfect opportunity. Some fashion risks have seriously big rewards. Because fringe pieces make such a statement, I don’t like to splurge. There’s always a chance that they won’t be so hot next year, so there’s no need to spend your life savings. H&M and Forever 21 are two of my favorite Tanger brands that always carry an abundance of on-trend items.
Below are a few of my favorite finds from each of them!
Forever 21 is always on trend with accessories – especially with fringe. It takes a pretty daring designer (and shopper) to go for things like a fringe bib necklace, but I LOVE IT! I tend to gravitate to black or neutral fringe pieces like bags or shoes, since the texture itself is so striking. Trust me, any of of these items will make a statement and have all your fellow fashionistas asking where you got them. Of course my answer is always Tanger for less!
And then there’s my all-time favorite – H&M. I’ve never walked into this store and not found something that I didn’t need. I say need very loosely, because not everyone sees a white fringe dress as a necessity. I’ve already started a list of places I could wear this stunner and it’s nearly a page long! The cutout in the back makes it the perfect spring statement dress. The length, the cut, it’s all perfection. I would pair this with a sleek black (or well matched cream) blazer and strappy heels for a night on the town look.
If you’re on the hunt for fringe finds, I say go find them a.s.a.p. before they’re gone! Things this good don’t usually last on the racks for too long. Check out my Pinterest board for more inspiration!
