How the Hell Do I Wear That!?! Fringe Edition

January 16, 2009

Fringe turned out be be a huge trend for SS 2009; they showed up in several iterations — from hippie chic to neo-flapper.

Potential Humiliation: 7/10. Minus a great, innovative shape, you can come off as too costumey (cowgirl or flapper for Halloween this year?).

How to Triumph: Keep it super-simple!

– Explore this trend through accessories, and pair with an otherwise plain get-up.

– Know your genre: don’t mix the haute hippie look with Deco-inspired pieces.

– Make sure your fringe is thick & lustrous; anemic fringe spells cheap fast.

– Keep the shape on your piece simple but with a modern twist.
