Every reason to be “on the fringe”…

Every reason to be “on the fringe”…

Since the 1960s, fringed leather handbags have continuously reincarnated themselves season after season.  In other words, these beauties are a style without an expiration date.  Few fashion statements can linger with the same appeal as long as this one; being able to effortlessly maintain a simultaneous classic appearance while maintaining hip factor.

Whim, edge and hobo haute all zipped into one; we suggest you get on the fringe, STAT!  To master a modern bohemian chic, here are a few style tips to keep in mind:

Choose Classic Colors. These bags look best in classic, neutral shades like brown and black, but are especially fresh in gray.  Venturing into bright, bold hues will date the bag, taking away that beloved combination of timelessness, vintage charm.

Wear one at a time: Let your bag be the featured fringe item without giving it competition from other trendy accessories. You may love your fringe jacket and boots, but save them for another day!   An item as sassy as this deserves to be the center of attention.  In this case, the more is not merrier.

Juxtapose it. Pair the fringe with something unexpected.   A structured blazer, fitted pant, flirty dress, the list goes on...  The key to achieving long lasting fashion appeal is styling the bag with modern, trendy fashions.

As you can see, there are different shapes, sizes and styles of these textured bags for you to choose.  Regardless of personality, whether it is hippy, rocker, or preppy there is a way to incorporate the fringe into your frock. 

Which is your favorite bag? What kind of look do you build around the accessory?
