On the Fringe

One of my absolute favorite ways to add a kick to my outfit is spicing things up with a little fringe.  While you may be thinking that fringe is a trend reserved for the rodeo or a night out, I am pleased to inform you that this is simply not the case. The great thing about adding fringe is you can incorporate it into your outfit in countless ways.Anyone who has known me longer than a week knows that I am obsessed with purses and shoes.  Why?  They don’t change size….for the most part.  Another reason I love a good bag and/or shoe is they can add a pop to the simplest of outfits.  If I am meeting a customer or client about a contract, wearing high-heeled fringe boots may not send the right message.  Instead, I can wear a simple black dress with basic black or nude flats or pumps and add in a fringe bag for some fun.  If you’re in the mood for a bit of flare, don’t hesitate to try some fringe with a printed dress like the one below.  Mixing fringe with various textured pieces is a great way to stand out.

While today I’m sharing some of my favorite fringe bags, designers have flocked to fringe adding the flare in boots, jackets, and dresses this season.  If are working fringe into your outfit, whether in the form of a jacket, dress, or boot, keep the rest of your outfit simple for a day look.  At night, all bets are off!In Texas, fringe is sported virtually any time during the year.  Believe it or not, fringe dates back to nearly 3,000 to 300 B.C.E. where it was sported by civilizations in Mesopotamia.  Both men and women embraced the look, which became more ornate as time went on.  Men even developed their own unique fringe to be used to make their mark on a contract!  Perhaps I’ll have to design my own fringe to sign my contracts.  Then again, I don’t know how well that would go with my boss.

Take a look at some of my favorite fringe purses this season, and if you want more tips on how to sport the fringe look, let me know!
