There are some things in fashion that are quintessentially fall: suede, rich colors, layers. One big one for me personally is fringe. I don’t know what it is about the weather getting crisper that makes me crave both apple picking and my favorite fringe accessories.
Like me, this Fashionista is enjoying the “fringe” benefits of the change in the season. The detail, which was popular in the ‘60s, is having a fashion revival. While it can be seen on vests and jackets, the easiest way to pull off the fringe look is on a bag. This Fashionista’s bag is the perfect fringe bag. It’s dark brown looks almost black. However, the brown color has a richer feel and is far more appropriate for the season. The long fringe on the bottom adds dimension and movement when this Fashionista is heading to the classroom. The gold detailing is modern and gives a fresh take to this hippie-inspired look. She topped off the look with desert boots and colored skinnies to make sure the bag doesn’t look too costumey.
Fall is upon us and that means indulging in some of favorite fall items. Make sure to treat yourself to some fabulous fringe (and maybe a slice of apple pie, too).
Spotted: Emilio Pucci's spring 2011 show was full of fringe bags in a variety of shapes, styles and colors. Check out this model showing off a similar dark brown fringe bag like today's Fashionista.
