This spring, and also summer it seems like, fringe will be everywhere. How do I know? Just look at all the fashion shows. Runways, including the NYFW,  have been filled with silk fringes, tassels, leather versions; you name it and fringe is there. Modernized, high fashion versions of the trend have been spotted from designers such as Derek Lam, Phillip Lim, and Valentino, to Missoni, Celine, and Michael Kors.

I think looking back fringe has never been totally out. It always exists and holds its own starring in western outfits, boho styles, and acting as the honorary spokesperson of the Coachella Festival. This year however, this super fun trend that makes you want to dance to some Latin music and make those frills move and shimmy, is in the spotlight.

Here are some of my favorite 2014 pieces from the stores followed by my own take of the trend per usual. Numbers 7, 8, and 9, there is a big chance you will be mine! Which of these lovelies are you guys fancying?



From Theboxqueen’s Closet

fringe-trend-4I bought the side fringed Trouve cap sleeve sweater (now sold out) a while ago. This knit does have a mix of western and boho feel to it mixed with some modernity thanks to the classy color.

Style Tip: When you are starting with such a “notice me” piece, ground it with at least some of the elements of your outfit. Here I wanted to emphasize the whimsical tone of the top matching it with fun and colorful bag& shoes while calming down the look with the neutral green skinny jeans.( from Stitch fix)

fringe-trend-VINCA-detailI think you know by now how much I enjoy original accessories. How about a little jar complete with natural austinite with a namesake tag, and a Texas charm on the back from VINCAUSA ? I say completely unique and fitting to western influence in the outfit. I love that this 14K gold filled necklace is made in the USA.

fringe-trend-details-1This red Foley+Corinna bag continues the fringe theme with it’s tassled zipper.

fringe-trend-1Remember my yellow high heel Oxfords from the January Stitch Fix post? They finish off the look with some added interest and also are another example of how I love multitasking my pieces to the fullest.

Style tip: You don’t need to limit yourself to neutrals in shoes and bags. A bright purse or heel can give new life to your tried and true outfits and make them distinctly you. By finding colors that appeal to your own fashion sense and are flattering to you, any neutral top or bottom can instantly be more fun.

    • Nuray so happy to know you like the look, love mixing up colors and keeping it fun! Thx for saying hi <3 XOXO, Elif

  • Um I LOVE that bag! Is your color the same ‘lobster’ color that you linked to? I was on the hunt for more of a burgundy/wine colored bag, but gosh – that one is just so beautiful…

    • Carylee my bag is the same color as the link but the zipper part is different, mine has a big tassle. 🙂 I bought it last year so the model might have changed a bit, I could not find the exact same one. So happy you liked it. <3 XOXO, Elif

  • Ok I just ordered the bag 🙂 Now that I can think straight…. I do love fringe in doses. I say this now and I’ll probably be fringed out in a few months 🙂

    • LOL you are just like me :)) I can’t think straight too when I am obsessing about smt. Can’t wait to see your pics with your bag! I love it so much as I can use it as a cross body bag when I am running after my little ones and the color is drop dead gorgeous. I think you’ll enjoy it! Also I am smiling about your fringe comment 🙂 I have to say fringe is fun so maybe worth a try. <3<3 XOXO, Elif

      • I used the bag today to shop – it was great! I love it so so much! I’m so happy I found it through you!!! <3

  • Fashionguru

    What a pretty top! I had a purple leather jacket with fringe on the arms when I was in college and I miss it big time now looking at the new trends. My pick will be number 5 very sexy dress ;-).

    • Fashionguru, I agree that number 5 is one sexy dress; I may need it for my wedding anniversary in summer, I think hubby would like it too 🙂 That purple leather jacket sounds amazing, wish you had a pic to share. XOXO, Elif

  • Love the fringe bag. Love the color =)


    • Thx Hazel, I can’t get over that bag, obsessed with it lately haha <3 XOXO, Elif

  • Tban

    I am still hesitant about the fringe. But you make it look so fab. Love the top and the jewelry. When i see how everything is put together i say, yes i can wear fringe

    • @Tban you are so sweet! I myself don’t like an overboard in fringe but small amounts give some movement to any outfit I think; makes it interesting. 🙂 Give it a try in small doses if it is not your thing and see if you change your mind; you never know unless you try <3<3 XOXO, Elif

  • Rachel G

    I don’t think I’ve ever owned anything with fringe on it, but you make it look good!

    • Rachel fringe is something I try from time to time in small doses too; it’s fun I think adds some interest to the outfits. You may like it if you try maybe in a small purse 😉 Thx for the kind words <3 XOXO, Elif

  • I’m not a massive fan of fringe, I think you’ve styled this great and you’ve worked the colours really well though, it’s just not for me! I’m so beyond jealous of the shoes!

    Corinne x

    • Corinne I totally get that not all trends are for everyone (crop tops I am talking to you haha) but I am so happy to know that you like my styling <3 Aren't those shoes pretty? Along with the bag I am so gaga over them 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • sibel

    I like the fringe style…It symbolizes rebellion, freedom, and reckless youth. In 1993, I was wearing fringe jackets, vests, boots, even bags….I am so happy to see these back in style. This means I can use them again….Looks like perhaps even my daughter will use them one day.

    • Sibel such a good way to put it, love the explanation of what fringe stands for 🙂 Please share when you get a fringe piece would love to see a pic, and I say yes it’s safe to say this trend will probably be around for our daughters; seems like it’s never completely going away. XOXO, Elif

  • I had no idea fringe was in. You are so on top of these trends and stylish! I can’t wait to see flapper dresses take the runway.

    • Karen, fringe is in and out so fast and never completely gone that it’s so easy to miss 🙂 Thx for the sweet words, so nice of you! I’ve seen a couple flapper dresses on the runway and they were gorgeous 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • I love your 2014 fringe collection. Minnetonka Moccasin Mini Fringe Bag instantly caught my eye. Items 7, 8 and 9 are really pretty too. I think you have great taste.
