At a time when our wardrobes can feel rather mundane and drab given the fact we’re not going out much these days (plus, it’s winter), along comes a feel-good trend that instantly adds a touch of fun and whimsy to our look—and it’s just what the doctor ordered. The fringe trend has had a huge resurgence this Fall/Winter season, thanks in part to designers from Bottega Veneta to Jil Sander who showcased the free-flowing detail all over the runways.
A fringe jacket is unquestionably one of the easiest ways to take on the trend. We’ve spotted the Western-inspired silhouette on fashion girls all over the globe. In fact, our very own Editor in Chief, Kat Collings, is a devout fan of the fringe jacket, professing that “It’s a compliment magnet! In a word, fringe is fun. I swear it amps up my personality by 25% and my introverted self appears… less so. I like that it’s always more or less in style. And who can’t help but shimmy and shake in a little fringe?”
