Jackets

Fringed jackets often seek to echo their relaxed 70’s origins.

Woodstock Festival was not short of suede fringe trims, and neither are we.

Embrace bohemian details this season with The Yellow Fringe Western Bomber from R13.

This cropped, suede number features asymmetric fringing from front to back, making a statement from your entrance to your exit.

Fendi’s Fringe Detail Double Breasted Coat is a great option for a modern take on a classic silhouette.

This beige, wool trench adds an asymmetric fringed hemline for a more subtle take on this trend.

With the same token of asymmetry, take note of Philipp Plein’s Crystal Fringe Blazer.

This cherry red jacket is finished with a crystal-embellished fringe that is sure to draw the eye.

This whimsical adornment seeks to offset the austerity of its structural tailoring, adding a quality of fluidity and motion.

With New York Fashion Week leading the way, follow in the footsteps of fashion’s finest with a fringe jacket this season.

Dresses

The original fringe item of the ’20s was the ‘flapper dress’.

A century later and we’ve come full circle, with fringe dresses on the forefront of New York Fashion Week.

Whilst these dresses echo the freedom of the Jazz Age, they come with a modern twist from maximalist extravagance to streamline chic.

Ranging in fabrics from textured knit to coloured leather, there is a fringe for every stylistic palette.

Proenza Schouler utilises a heavy, layered fringe to contrast and balance with the body con, funnel neckline.

The fringe creates shape and movement amongst the elongated form of the dress.

This aesthetic appeal of fringe is embraced in Nk’s Fringe Dress.

This contemporary design encompasses strips of coloured leather as a continuation of the bodycon bodice.

The fringe allows added volume and fluidity, an aesthetic appeal that designers embrace.

Whether you’re after a classic flapper fringe dress or its contemporary counterpart, New York Fashion Week has seen it embraced in a multitude of shapes and colours.

Enjoy the feeling of fringe and its promise of movement with our top picks of the trend.

Bags

Fringed accessories: an addition of fluidity we have been seeing on the streets of New York Fashion Week.

The cascading detailing harks back to the freedom of the flapper with the sentiment of the seventies.

Meet all your fringe desires with Camilla’s Coming Down from the Cosmos Silk Pouch.

This colourful accessory is saturated in rainbow hombre silk with a drawstring fastening.

Balmain has also opted for vibrant hues with their crimson red fringe bag.

The beauty of a maximalist accessory like this is it takes precedence, allowing for simplicity in dressing.

Our suggestion would be to pair it with a plain white t-shirt and blue-wash denim, accentuating the statement of the season.

Should you want a more refined take on the fringe trend, see The Wolf Gang’s Ondara Fringe Bag. This ‘little-black-bag’ is adorned with chopped layered fringe in black suede.

This monochromatic accessory will take you from day to night with its relaxed structure and gold hardware.

Skirts

The ribbon-like tendrils of fringe have been accentuating the hemlines of our skirts.

However, this season we have seen an elevation beyond a simple frayed edge, to encompass thicker breadths and sequin embellishments.

The Textured Knit Fringe Skirt from Proenza Schouler is a culmination of multiple trends from its bright tangerine hue to its maximalist hemline.

The Attico also perpetuates our desire for movement with The Embellished Miniskirt.

This piece radiates artful glamour with V-shaped fringe trim of crystal. For a softer elegance, Zimmermann presents their Postcard Shell Fringe Trim Skirt.

A feature of their resort collection, this item emanates a romantic touch with hand-sewn shell motifs featuring through the trim.

Fringed skirts offer the liberty of movement and have been brought back this season.

Whether you’re interested in an exaggerated take on the trend or a more classic approach, this season will offer you the luxury of choice.
