There is just something about fringe that gets me. It’s so flirty without even trying. A fringe skirt is just begging to spin and twist in. It gives me an excuse to dance around even if no one else is. I’ve wanted a fringe skirt for a long time and I’d been eyeing this leather one from BCBG but just couldn’t pull the trigger on it. Then I saw it on a number of other fashion bloggers I know and follow, they of course looked great in it, and decided I couldn’t also have the same skirt, though now I wanted it even more. So when I spotted this suede fringe beauty, I knew I just had to jump on it with no hesitation. Because, let’s face it, fringe isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. This shopping trip I went into it with a list of pieces I wanted to add for spring, a matching two piece set, some basic blouse to add to the mix, a full floral midi skirt, and if possible also a sleeveless jacket. And honestly, a fringe skirt wasn’t on the list or even made it into the dressing room when I was trying on all the pieces I had gathered. I hadn’t spotted it until I was waiting in line to check out. It was hanging right behind the cash register as part of an outfit on display. It caught my attention and after asking what size it was, finding out it was my size, I took it without even trying it on. Thankfully when I got home and tried it on the next day, it fit perfectly and off to work I went. Adding a little fringe, or in this case a lot of fringe to a neutral outfit makes it go from simple to stylish and classic to flirty. The skirt is definitely the statement piece of this outfit therefore everything else can be basic neutrals to not compete.
Do you love fringe as much as I do?
