Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of fringe gone wrong, very, very wrong. The material is off, the length is too short or long, or the thickness of the fringe isn’t right, which leads to a generally costumey, cheap look. No thanks! There is great potential with fringe, however, to look casually elegant and every day functional, it needs to be the perfect blend of on-trend colors and shapes, and a delicate balance of the flyaway stuff for the ultimate movement and chic factor. You can enjoy a fringe bag these days without feeling like a flower child; see above for some simple silhouettes that work the fringe look with precision and below for the details.
