7 Cool New Ways to Wear Fringe

When you think of fringed clothing, the words festival fashion may come to mind. But the trend isn't only for the Coachella set—honest. Styled correctly, fringe can be sleek, feminine, edgy, or glamorous. It's all about the piece itself and how you wear it.

Take one of Gigi Hadid's best outfits as of late (in our opinion, at least): a Barbie-pink pantsuit by up-and-coming Polish label Kreist. You may have missed it while entranced by the rest of the ensemble, but the cropped moto jacket featured a front pocket trimmed with cascading pink thread—a cool detail and surely fun to play with if you're the fidgeting type. Elsewhere, celebs and street style stars like Cara Delevingne, Camille Charrière, and Lily Collins have rocked shredded skirts and swingy-sleeved tops, proving that fringe is far more versatile than you might think.

Below, see seven fresh ways to style the trend, and shop fun, fringed pieces from Zara, Stella McCartney, and more.
