As it’s approaching Spring, we’re taking a look at the SS19 styles that graced the runway at New York, Paris, Milan & London Fashion Weeks last year. There are so many incredible trends coming this Spring, but today we’re looking at all things Fringe.
What is fringe?
Fringe is an ornamental border of threads used to edge clothing or material. It can be left loose or tailored into tassels, can be worn long and flowing or cropped and subtle - the possibilities are endless! Fringe is mostly seen through clothing. It is used to border jackets and coats, add length and silhouette to skirts and in accessories like handbags and scarves. Fringe is so versatile and can add so many dimensions to an outfit and what better way to add more accents than with jewellery? Before we give you our jewellery picks to add more fringe into your life, let’s take a look at the experts...
Fringe on the SS19 Runway
Fringe was all over Fashion Week and featured in shows like Dolce & Gabbana, Tom Ford, Giorgio Armani and more. Jacquemus’ show hit Paris Fashion Week with a collection inspired by the French Riviera, with beach-inspired looks and fringe detailing on the handbags and accessories. While competing with iconic Jaws inspiration running throughout the SS19 collection, Calvin Klein contrasted bold graphics with multi-coloured and extensive fringe.
All shows that featured fringe used it in a different way, from tiers of long and short fringes and sleeves with fringe detailing. Givenchy used fringe in boots and stockings to keep the style running all the way down the body and across the runway. In accessories, fringe is used in tiered earrings and statement necklaces, using tassels, beads and leather to create a layered fringe effect.
Here are our fringe picks and how to incorporate fringe into your accessories and everyday outfits.
