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?

I 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)
I 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.
This red Foley+Corinna bag continues the fringe theme with it’s tassled zipper.
Remember 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.

Vincausa was kind enough to send me a necklace of my choice which aligns with my personal style sense and I provided my own opinion. This is NOT a sponsored post and everything else in this post have been purchased by me.
