On the Fringe

From the famous to fashionistas, style-savvy peeps are bringing back this “it” tassel-y trend—and we are here for it. Originally rising to fame thanks to Roaring ’20s flappers, the trend has trickled in and out of fashion over the last century—seeing popularity dotted across the ’60s, ’70s, ’90s and even circa 2016—from clutches and earrings to skirts, jeans and more. 

Now, fringe fashion is no longer, well, on the fringe. “Fringe used to be primarily seen on bags and boots for a boho or Western vibe,” says fab’rik Raleigh owner Paige Garner, “but no longer… with all aspects of ready-to-wear benefiting from a little fringing.”

Whether adding a little whimsy to a basic sweater or jacket, or even elevating a simple top or dress to statement-making, “the fringe trend is in full force this year,” says Garner. “Even your holiday-wear will have more tassels than before. So embrace your inner boho babe.” Challenge accepted. Perry faux suede fringe detail top, $62, fabrikstyle.com
