How To Wear Fringe and NOT Look Like A Cowboy


Fringe is one of Spring/Summer's hottest fashion trends. How can you incorporated it into your outfit without looking like you stepped out of a John Wayne movie? Try wearing a simple accessory, going boho, or turning to the 1920s for inspiration. Check out these 5 ways to wear fringe without all the "yee-haw"!

1. Get a fringe detailed shoe or sandal for your Summer wardrobe. Take fringe from country western to bohemian like Victoria Justice did with her fringe bootie.

2. Draw inspiration from the 1920s. Try a fringe skirt or all over fringe dress in Summery colors like Taylor Swift. In my book, if Taylor wears it, it can't be bad. :)

3. Whether it's a crossbody, clutch, backpack, etc. you can't go wrong with a fringe purse! I love this neutral gray bag Vanessa Hudgens is wearing with her cute Summer outfit!

4. Fringe jewelry is a really easy and budget friendly way to add fringe to your style. While writing this post I found everything from necklaces to earcuffs made of metals and beads in a variety of prices, sizes, and colors. While Kris Jenner's Met Ball earrings might be a little extreme, she has the right idea and I like the gold/red combo.

5. Probably the most tricky way to wear fringe without going all cowgirl is on a top. I would personally avoid anything in suede, denim, on a vest, or on a poncho. Try fringe kimono, swimsuit, or tank top. Pair it with a trendy, chic bottom like Selena Gomez did.
