The “in” trend for spring has a little swing to it.
It shimmies, it shakes, it has all the moves—and it’s making a huge comeback this spring. Fringe is fabulous once again. If you’re looking for a few ways to wear the trend, look no further than the spring 2014 runways at Gucci, Celine, Valentino, Marc Jacobs, Pucci and Dolce & Gabbana.
Gucci got in on the action with its Nouveau Fringe Shoulder Bag (in a stunning purple, nonetheless). Celine pulled out all the stops with its Soft Pouch Laser Cut Handbag in Nappa Calfskin Calk (from its summer 2014 collection). And Valentino covers your new night-out clutch for the rest of the season with its Gryphon Finger-Fringe Clutch, leaving Marc Jacobs to tackle day-time occasion with a chic crossbody with just a hint of fringe. Yes, there really is a fringe bag for every occasion.
When Pucci does fringe it’s a showstopper. While fringe might conjure up images of the Gatsby-esque era, this look from the brand is fresh. The black and white top will make you want to move. Capturing the ongoing in-vogue color scheme and marrying it with the fringe factor gives this top ultimate edge. Pair it with a black skirt, denim or skinny pants.
Gucci didn’t just tackle the fringe bag, it gave life to the fringe shoe, too. The Becky Sandal pops in shades like purple and orange. But the basic black and sand options give new life to neutral staples, as well. Pair these with everything from denim shorts to a stunning LBD for a night out.
We highly suggest cutting a rug while wearing this active adornment.
