Issa London Spring/Summer 2012

While everyone else is sporting super bright neons and color blocking, dare to veer from the crowd by decorating your summer wardrobe with few chic fringe pieces.  Now I know what you’re thinking: Coachella and all of it’s hologram-y goodness is gone, and no one wants to look like they’re wearing a Woodstock costume five months before Halloween. But I assure you that wearing fringe doesn’t have to be reminiscent of the 70′s. Here are some ways to rock fringe with a stylish modern approach.

When wearing fringe you never want to overdo it. Pick one item, maybe a shirt, bag, or even a dress, to showcase the trend. Here, in the Issa London Spring/Summer 2012 collection, a turquoise dress adorned with fine fringe is paired with a simple strappy sandal. The look is trendy, but easy and sophisticated.

If you want to be extra daring, take a hint from Rihanna and Rita Ora. Both wore high-waisted shorts with super long fringe. Rihanna, who wore shorts from Jeremy Scott’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection, paired her bottoms with a small grey cut off tank and a cowboy hat. Rita Ora chose a more 80’s vintage route for her Haleh Nematzadeh shorts, wearing them with a leather jacket, black bra,  Jordan sneakers, and a bold red lip.

Feeling a little timid? Start off small by adding a few accessories. A cute fringe bag or fringe sandals are all you need to make this trend come the life this summer.
