Can we dress 70s bohemian-chic but still look polished? Can we wear simple outfits but look sophisticated? Dressing trendy, looking sophisticated, chic, worthy of any street-style pic, or magazine cover, a task no longer impossible. Small pieces now can spice up your whole outfit. As I told you before this year is all about the 70’s and obviously when we are talking about the 70’s we must speak about FRINGES. For SS15, Fringes slapped on clothes or accessories have the magic power of looking trendy, AND versatile. So they can basically go from music-festival-style to office-hours-look. And all the styles in between. The 70s brought the fringe back into spotlight with a more bohemian-unglamorous-yet-incredibly take. Fringes on suede jackets or skirts were huge. Then 90s fringes were adorning our cropped T-shirts. Today… centuries later, I Thank God its back this spring, and I can now literally drape myself in fringed and tasseled anything. Shoes, bags, tops, tees, skirts, dresses, necklaces, belts, bracelets, jackets, matching-sets.
So make sure to have a fringed item in your closet.
How to wear it? I always say the shoes set the tone for the whole look.Fringes will always have the bohemian touch to them.So keeping them boho-chic 70s style is one way to go about it. Fringes on: suede jackets, suede over-the-knee skirts, denim shirts, slouchy handbags. Bed-hair, long hair, middle part, round shades, gladiator sandals or moto boots, fur vest will complete such a look.
Chunky heels will make fringes on anything look 70s chic yet trendy-smart. It’s perfect for office, and even going out. Think colored fringed skirts or dresses.
Stiletto heels are the uniform of stylish sartorial that graces any street style pic from Fashion Week. I mean, stilettos can make a paper bag look like haute-couture. Stiletto pumps or sandals look amazing with fringed knee-length skirts, with fringed miniskirts.
IF the fringed thing is too much, too tangled, too tasseled for you, here’s what you can do. Wear FRINGE accessories.
Fringe bags or fringe clutches are massive this season. So are fringe jewerly: bracelets, necklaces, belts… Anything that moves, tassels and dances like nobody’s watching, and is adorning your clothes or accessories is a keeper.
