Fringing Fun after the Fringe!

The Edinburgh festival and fringe may be over, but that’s not the last we;ll see of fringing this year! Yes, fashion fans, you can carry on with your own little fringe homage all through the autumn/winter.

Thanks tothe 1970s trend that’s everywhere this season, there’s A LOT of fringing out there. A lot. Really, a lot, a lot, a lot.

Fringing on everything, from skirts, to tops, to dresses, to shoes, to bags. We think the only thing we haven’t seen with a fringe yet is a phone cover. But give it time!

So, forget the fringe in your hair (that’s not such a huge trend this season), and add some fringing to everything else. And we relaly do mean everything. Fringing works best in leathers and suede.

Let’s start with full-on fringing. H&M’s fringe-trimmed midi dress (£49.99) is a great late autumn party frock, agreed? H&M also have a gorgeous suede fringed midi skirt, in tan or black (£99.99), but if that’s out of your budget, New Look have a lovey camel suedette version for £22.99.

New Look’s short black suedette dress (£24.99) has a fringing front detail. Fringing works on a cotton Tee like this grey version from Valley of the Dolls @ JOY (£25).

And how beautiful is French Connection’s gorgeous metallic fringing jacket (£350), with those delicate metal fringes? We adore it!

Fringing fashion oneFringing works brilliantly on a simple waistcoat, or gilet. We also just love New Look’s suede cape (£49.99), with the best fringing ever. Team with a vest and jeans for a simple, cute look. H&M’s woollen fringed gilet is a perfect autumnal cover up, and New Look’s tan suede waistcoat (£44.99) is 70s-tastic.

BHS’s paisley pattern devore kimono with fringing (£38) taps in to a few key trends for this autumn winter.  Go boho with the lovely fringed Butterfly by Matthew Williamson big tote bag at Debenhams (£79), or keep it slightly more subtle with New Look’s leather fringed mock croc print slouchy bag (£24.99).

fringing fun twoShoes with fringing? Absolutely. Boots and shoes look great, just not cowboy books. Wre’re not trying to recreate the Wild West with this trend!

H&M’s tan flat fringed boots (£39.99) are our favourites for everyday wear. For nights out, we love New Look’s selection. Choose from gold block heeled fringe front shoe-boot slingbacks  (£29.99), or nude suede-like fringed open-toe boots (£24.99), or black studded fringe boots with killer heels (£64.99).

frinigng fun threeAnd here are two more cute fringed handbags for you – H&M’s dinky fringed shoulder bag is just £7.99, and this little pink handbag is from Red Herring at Debenhams (£22).

More fringe fun than you had in August, right?!

Fringing Fun!

Fringing is having a fashion moment. There is fringing fun to be had all over the shops at the moment – from shoes, to bags, to dresses and jewellery.

It definitely comes from the huge 1970s trend that is everywhere this season. A lot of the fringing fun can be found in hte Coachella range at H&M – you can’t go to Coachella without a fringe or two somewhere!

But fringing fun doesn’t necessarily need to mean you have to go all Woodstock, and act like a true 1970s hippie.

Fringing can still be sophisticated – it’s all about how you wear it. Fringing in tan, neutral tones, and natural fabrics like leather and suede has that 1970s vibe.

But, you can find fringing fun in monochrome as well. H&M’s Coachella range playsuit is too cute. And French Connection’s deep inky-blue-that-looks-black fringed tassel dress is hippy-ish, but adorable.

If you want to glam up your fringing fun, a body con dress, killer heels and a selection of fringed jewels should work. Oh yeah, and a sumptuous suede bag.

If you want to keep it simple with fringing, keep it black. One fringed piece can bring an outfit to life. Play it safe with just a bag or shoes, or try a fringed skirt to really stand out.
