I’m pretty sure I’ve always had a thing for fringe.  I remember my grandma having various fringe-y tablecloths and curtains, and me loving the feeling of running my fingers through the tassels; twisting them, swinging them, twirling them.  So imagine my excitement when the piecey pieces started showing up on runways (above) and from our favorite accessible stores like Zara and Asos!

I’ve owned a few fringe pieces for awhile now, and every time I wear them, I just get happy– it’s something about the movement and the bohemian, carefree flair that simultaneously satisfies my obsession with texture in an outfit.  When one of my all time favorite designers, Rebecca Minkoff, showed lots and lots of fringe on her runway today, at New York Fashion Week, it solidified for me that this trend would be around for at least another few seasons.  The looks shown above show fringe in its finest iteration: styled with 70’s downtown flair, with lots of maroons, deep golds, and of course black.  And no need to wait until next fall! Get some of these fabulous tassels in your mix NOW– I promise, they up the fashion factor of any outfit.

See below, some of my favorite fringe pieces in my current rotation:
