I know fringe is a big trend this season, so I wanted to try and find a way to fit it into my personal style. Experimenting is part of the job, and testing out the wearability of a trend is my duty to you guys. I’m not going to lie, fringe feels trite to me, so I wasn’t exactly thrilled with the task of incorporating it into my wardrobe.
But, a job is a job and I never say no to a challenge. I spent a lot of time looking for the right fringe piece. We’ve had lots of items come through the POPSUGAR style room, and I’ve come across countless fringed pieces out shopping and online, but nothing felt right. That is, until I found this great two-toned navy and black fringe skirt by BCBG.
I knew I wanted to do some sort of fringe skirt, thanks to all the beautiful pictures I saw on pinterest. The beauty of fringe is in the movement, and swishing around thin strands of leather started to sound more and more appealing. The fringe could even double as a mini whip if some asshole were to cut you in line… but let’s not digress because I could get all 50 Shades of Grey on you right now. Jk. Or am I?
So I found the skirt, but how to style it? Clean and classic with a little edge is always a good idea, so I went for all my absolute favorite basics: white button up top, trusty ankle strap sandals, and a moto jacket.
Funny enough – after we shot these photos, I was still kind of dreading seeing this look in pictures. It wasn’t until I was putting together this post (so like, right now) that I fell in love with this piece. Granted, I think this is enough fringe to last me a year, but I’m glad I tried it out. It’s nice to get out of your comfort zone once in awhile – after all, isn’t that what fashion is all about? Shop some of my favorite fringe skirts below!
